'Popeye' Bodybuilder Has Silicon Implants Put Into His Calves
| Last updated
A controversial 'bodybuilder' who developed 'Popeye' muscles by injecting synthetic chemicals into his biceps has had silicon implanted into his calves so that his legs match his arms.
Only months ago 21-year-old Kirill Tereshin was warned that he could lose his arms after using a cocktail of lidocaine, alcohol, and olive oil known as 'synthol' to swell the limbs.
Now doctors have reportedly had to make him promise not to inject the synthol again if they agree to put silicon implants into his legs.
Quite like if you bribed a child not to have more sweets - with a chocolate bar. Makes total sense.
Kirill, from Pyatigorsk in south western Russia, says that he wanted his calves to resemble 'rockets'.
The former soldier started injecting the chemicals to develop massive muscles without having to bother too much with going to the gym. Some people would dub him a lazy bastard.
Sharing the snaps of his new pins on social media, Kirill commented: "I will make my calves look like my arms. My nuclear weapon will be the most powerful and big."
Whatever you say, mate.
Kirill has been widely criticised in the past by health experts for his 60 centimetre (24 inch) biceps for which he has site enhancement oil to thank.
He insists that he plans to continue with his risky regime, which also includes workouts, and hopes to one day break bodybuilding records.
So the surgeons deal looks like it went out of the window then?
Doctors warn that synthol can cause pulmonary embolisms, nerve damage, infections, sclerosing lipogranuloma, stroke and oil-filled cysts or ulcers in the muscle. Sounds delightful.
Professionals have given him a chilling prediction of what could happen to him in future - the litres of synthol that he's pumped into his arms could lead to him having his arms amputated.
Professor Evgene Lilin told the Mail: "He very likely faces amputation in the future. One day abscesses will develop, then inflammation and he (will be at risk of) a stroke.
"The bad thing is that already-injected synthol or its equivalent will remain in his muscles for the next five to seven years, even if he stops adding more now."
He has also been warned that he faces paralysis as well as the threat of arm amputation.
Time to give this shit up, Kirill? It might be big but it's certainly not clever.
