No need to open up this box again. Don't be mistaken, we're talking a lot of synthol here. He's an idiot and a poster boy for all that is wrong in the AAS world.

from what I gathered, he is saying it was from injecting with dirty needles not from injecting too much synthol. no???

That's what he said yeah, something along the lines of "I'd drop a needle and blow on it and that's when infection can happen".Originally Posted by Ronin13

I have seen this on tv, very nasty. He should have gone to the doctor to have that taken care of. This is an example of one guy with severe mental issues.

There is one good reason this was brought up again, and that's because of the mention synthol in this thread. I recently saw the TLC special on this guy called 'The Man Who's Arms Exploded'. And with all the detail they went into, showing all of Valentino's videos at various points in time, IIRC- NOT EVEN ONE MENTION OF SYNTHOL WAS MADE.Originally Posted by Rage (SoCal)
Most of those who are knowledgable about anabolic steroids/lifting know synthol is in another league of severity in relation to steroids. And synthol was the direct physical (although not psychological) reason for this guy's arms looking that way. Why the f*** wasn't it mentioned!!!! They didn't even need to say "synthol", the program could have just gave a general mention to why Greg's arms were so gigantic.
So why was this was done? Just one more piece of proof regarding the media's desire for sensationalization and their attempts to vilainize steroids. Esp. when considering the story of Greg's disgusting arms were sandwiched nicely in between a couple of other stories regarding anabolics.

Agreed. If they want to look at all the "horrible" effects of steroids, they should talk to AGELESS. The guy looks like Zeus for Christ's sake.Originally Posted by bigSMokey

Well Greg Valentino is very interesting and I enjoy him and his commentary in Muscular Development magazine. But it is obvious he is in denial about what he does. But he ripped into TLC and it's producers in Muscular Development saying that they misconstruded his words and edited to make him seem dopey.
He said that it was an Hematoma that caused that swelling in his biceps and not from all the build up of AAS usuage as TLC attempted to claim.
He is still interesting.

Man that guy looks good! I was suprised to find out he was using AS and synthol though..I was under the impression that he was all natural...did this info blow anyone else's mind?

such an idiot. he lost everything, including his family.. hes a big p u s s y.. just listen to how he talks.. def doesnt even know how to fight
04-08-2007, 03:43 AM
I guess. Jay Cutler might not know how to fight either. I wouldn't f*** with him. Not to say that I in any way respect Gregg Valentino. I mean....looking at his before pictures where he looks awesome and really could have gone somewhere to where he ACTUALLY went with the synthol and all that dumb crap. That's shameful, but at no point would he have been the guy I walked up to at the bar trying to start some s*** with. I don't do that anyways...but what I'm saying is...if I did though...he wouldn't be my #1 priority. Guys that size probably don't have a lot to worry about in the need to know how to fight department. But he DOES suck though.

im probably wrong, and he probably has mentioned it, but from the things i have read he either side stepped the synthol question, or flat out denied it.
Is he a liar? ha, indeed he is, is it TLC's fault for not checking further, and going in depth about synthol? yeah, ill say bad on them.
but if i just masturbated and i shake hands with you, is it your fault for not knowing?
if hes always denied it, and didnt bring it up during the TLC documentary, then i cant really fault them for not higlighting it, the story was about him, and having someone else comment on something hes done, and then have him deny it, kind of ruins the credibility of the story.
eh...what little it had in the first place anyway.
04-08-2007, 12:26 PM
Hahahaha that's so awesome! Good call! I've read that too. The guy acts like it's ridiculous that people accuse him too. Like "dude you're not fooling anyone." Going from his 15" forearms to his 29" biceps that look like he surgically placed melons on either side of. I don't remember what his excuse for his arms getting so huge was. But if this guy's not a poster child for not using synthol to anyone out there...they just cannot be helped.

How can you judge the guy if you don't know him personally?. Everyone has their faults, but if you don't know the guy and just saw some tv show and are judging him from what you hear or see in the media without even considering your own faults....Well thats just wrong.
04-08-2007, 01:24 PM
I guess you're right to a point. But I don't know Manson and never knew Hitler. I'm not gonna say I wouldn't judge them just because I never met them. What I'm getting at is the fact that he ruined his body. I mean yeah...I know the point of him doing that was to be a freak but how could you do that to yourself just so you can be a freak, you know? The guy straight up said though he was dropping needles on the floor, dusting 'em off, reusing needles. That's just stupid. The bad thing is that the guy is making steroid users look worse than they already do.
04-08-2007, 01:34 PM
Mason and Hitler are a lot different then this guy. They did a lot worse things. Thats not the point though. Yes this guy did do some stupid things in his life, but thats not a reason to judge him. Who hasn't done things they regret?. At least he has the balls to admit he was wrong to do these things. I saw this program also, but I think it was about his lifestyle and not steroids in general. It doesn't make steroids look bad, it makes his lifestyle look bad. The guy had problems, but I'm not gonna say he was an idiot or juge him because everyone has their own faults.

Here is a link from Gregg's own website store.
Guess what he's selling "posing oil" on his website.
I guess he can't come down too hard on synthol in his interviews if he selling it himself
