There's a pro bodybuilder on another forum who swears Valentino's biceps were custom-made implants: synthol alone won't get 'em like that.
Let's also note that Synthol is constantly injected oil. Only difference between synthol and regular oil is that synthol takes a much much longer time to clear; hence, the people who inject synthol with steroids in it are ****ing morons because the steroid needs to get into the bloodstream and pass through the liver to become "activated".
now that I think about that, it makes sense. However, his biceps/arms are not symmetrical which would occur if there were implants.
either way they are ugly as hell
I'm pretty sure Vic Martinez shoots synthol in his rear delts.
Haha, yeah. Valentino looks horrible.
Part of the reason his arms are so messed up, is because he had a hematoma (sp?) in one of his biceps, was a retard and tried to "fix it" himself. Doctors ended up having to cut out the infected section of his bicep. The moron used to use dirty needles.
Edit: You're right, it wasn't a tear and he did try to fix it himself. I remember now.
Eh, no one's in town this weekend. I'm stuck at the University for the summer while everyone is at home.
Synthol? No way! Valantino injected cell-tech straight to the muscle.
He did use synthol IMO. That pic above is also flattering. Usually he had no vascularity.
He DID cause the damage himself.
He did try to get it fixed.
And if memory serves me he does/did get a small implant, BUT i cant be held to that one.
PM him over at MD he shows up once in awhile.
Perosnally, people ahte on him to much. Let the man be, he knows what he did, he knows alot of people laugh at him, he is a hero in his own mind.
On a nice note, his physique "pre transformation" was great. He used to compete, still could have if he didnt get ahead full of steam and do what he did.
I agree. Back before he went "mutant", he was a decently proportioned bodybuilder, and I believe he did a lot of competing in strongman.
he used to be real serious from what I have seen, I agree let him be at this point.

He had damn good arms back in the day too.Def a strong point.He swears he never used synthol.I believe he even said it wasn't around back when he got his arms that big.Who knows?I don't see why he would lie about it when he's so truthfull about many other things.But again,who knows?I like his column.It seems anyone would be honored to have him as a friend.Just seems like a guy that would put himself through hell just for someone else to get a bit of pleasure out of life.
ruined his physique
Dysmorphia at its finest!
Whatever it is, implants, synthol, etc....those arms aren't just 'muscle' only.
Oh, its site injections alright.....
Didn't Gregg Valentino say before he used to empty entire vials into his arms at a time ? If so, interesting.....
Implants. Oil will stretch the fascia but you eventually need to grow into the new space. So your arms get more muscular and fill in where the oil once was...
...if you were to repeat this process to the extreme as claimed by G.V. then your arms to reach that huge size would also be very muscular and a lot stronger then G.V.'s currently are.
