This Bodybuilder Nearly Lost His Arms Trying To Look Like The Hulk

The Hulk is one of the most far-fetched superheroes in terms of believability, because a billionaire might be able to afford a suit of power armor but no amount of gamma rays will turn an average scientist into an eight-foot-tall wall of muscles.

Brazilian bodybuilder Romario Dos Santos Alves is one of the Hulk’s biggest fans, but his love for Marvel’s mega-sized superhero nearly cost him his arms.

Romario began injecting synthol (a mixture of oil and alcohol) into his arms to make them swell to titanic proportions, and these injections began to calcify his muscles, causing the muscle tissue to turn into "rocks".

Doctors thought they might have to amputate his arms due to the hardening of the muscles, but they were able to remove some of the "rocks" from Romario's arms, teaching Romario a hard lesson about trying to inject his way to Hulkiness.

I would suggest to use silicone implants stuffed between the muscle and the skin, rather than using synthol. At least they may be removed with much less problems.
