All of the injections in his biceps were becoming like rocks. In addition to his obsessive workout routine, Alves used needles you’d use for bulls and horses filled with synthetic filler synthol to inject himself with. These drugs are what helped Alves achieve his Hulk like figure which seems to have become quite of a nightmare for the father and husband. He’s only 25 years old with a pain in his arm so severe that he once considered amputation.


He began taking these potent supplements after talking to several larger men at the gym which then introduced Alves to these drugs. He told the Mirror, “If you take it once there will definitely be a second time – it’s addictive. I remember the doctor told me that they would need to amputate both arms – they said everything in there, all my muscles, were rock.” Romario shared his story because he wanted to share the dangers of these unnatural and harmful injections.
