Oversized Biceps
I wish these pictures were fake, but they appear to be real. They show bodybuilder Greg Valentine. He got his arms that big by injecting a combination of steroids directly into them. At the risk of being insensitive, I'd say the results look pretty gross. In fact, his biceps no longer look like real biceps at all. They look like strange tumors growing out of his arm. It's a wonder that his biceps are functional at all. (via ChrisDiClerico.com)

His arms look like those of my morbidly obese aunt. His biceps look more like fat rolls than muscles.

His arms are that mishapen not due to direct muscle injection, but to a type of oil you can inject under the skin. It's purely cosmetic. One cannot get biceps that big without building up popeye forearms as well. This guy is bullshit.

hey, they referenced this guy on the Daily Show last night when they were mocking the government's steroid-use investigation. i wonder if he gets royalties from his image being used to freak people out?

I see a lot of negative remarks about this individual. I wonder do guys ever get tired of looking at fake breast! Exactly so I say this before you offer up a opinion look into your on life and ask yourself have you ever done something you wish you could change. Steroids are like any other drug or alcohol once you began its like a snow ball out of control.We all have family members and friends that are affected by these unfortunate repercussions Every day so remember that before you speak on something.
Thanks

seriously you guys should do a bit more research ffs. Greg Valentine is the most hated 'bodybuilder' in the BB society, if you wanna know why go read his biography. His arms were actually 21 inchs naturally, before he used any sort of steroid or anything, he got them to 23 inchs with steroids after seeing people he was training racing ahead of him by using these 'enhancers'. The other 4 inchs he got is synthol, you basically inject into the heads of muscles and it makes them swell. As to whether he can use his arms like a normal person, he most defenately can. He can still play baseball, basketball and everything else.
