Brazilian bodybuilder, Valdir Segato, who injected himself with oil for bigger muscles died on his 55th birthday.
Valdir had been using potentially fatal injections of Synthol for years, risking strokes and infections, to get huge biceps, pectorals and back muscles.
Segato previously said his body inspirations were Arnold Schwarzenegger and fictional characters like the Hulk.
“They call me Hulk, Schwarzenegger and He-Man all the time and I like that. I’ve doubled my biceps but I still want to be bigger,” he said in 2016, according to the Daily Mail.
Six years ago, Segato was warned he would face amputation, or at least nerve damage and music disfigurement, as a result of the injections if he continued to use them.
His biceps blew up to 23 inches after he started injecting himself. He had come to be known as “the monster” on the streets and was proud of his title.
