What is synthol?
Do you know what synthol is?
Talking about creating synthol usually start with mentioning esiclene. This drug, which became very popular in the 80's, has extremely low anabolic activity, but with intramuscular injections, it tends to cause a strong inflammatory reaction, which results in edema and, accordingly, a short-term (about 24 hours) increase in muscle volume.

These properties led to widespread use of esiclene bodybuilders during competitions. It allows, together with a drug that increases the size of veins, to achieve a relief "pattern" of muscles, characteristic of a Pro. And you thought that they achieve this only by training and diet?!

This fact prompted the German Amateur chemist Chris Clark to think that it would be nice to create a similar long-acting drug. Received in the early 90's composition, he gave the name Syntol (Syntol). However, this name was already patented, so a new one was invented - "Pump-N-Pose" (Swing and Pose). Under this brand, the drug is now sold worldwide.

Clarke found a real gold mine (for himself, of course), because he gave the opportunity to thousands of people who are willing to do anything to increase muscle mass, a virtually fail-safe method that is not disdained by either Amateurs or pros. 400 dollars-this is the price of a bottle of synthol, prohibited for use for "direct purpose" by all federations and committees of bodybuilding, but sold... like oil for posing!

Nowadays, it is common to acquire outstanding muscle volume with the help of synthol. Prick it not only in the biceps and triceps, but also in the calf, deltoid and pectoral muscles. You can't say, of course, that all owners of synth muscles are weak - many of these guys participate in arm-wrestling competitions and pulling multi-ton trucks. But, nevertheless, to call them athletes somehow the language does not turn. These guys and their, alas, very numerous fans clearly show an abnormal craving for gigantism. Something similar is inherent in some ladies who decided to use silicone to surprise the world with the size of their bust.

Synthol, simply put, without formulas, is an oil (fat)with some painkillers. It is injected deep into the muscle, where it is deposited between bundles of muscle fibers. With repeated injections, the volume of oil in the muscle increases, increasing its size, just as a balloon is stretched when inflated with air.

About 30% of the drug is metabolized (broken down) by the body. The remaining 70% remain in the muscles, where they remain for 3-5 years, undergoing very slow decay. There is much debate about the duration of action of synthol, but most believe that synthol is retained in the muscles for a much longer period than was stated - at least 8 years.

Injections are made with a thin needle to a depth of one quarter of an inch (6.35 mm). For the first 20 days, 1 ml daily. Another 10 days - 2 ml each. Then 3 ml daily until the muscle increases its volume. When the volume growth stops, 1 ml daily for 30 days. Another 30 days - 1 ml twice a day. Then 1 ml per week for 1 month. Only after passing this course, the increase in muscle volume becomes constant, and the muscle does not decrease. After 4 months, the course should be repeated again: it may be possible to achieve a new increase in volume (although the chances are not very high, about 50-50). So-a minimum of 275 ml per muscle, a minimum of 250 injections per muscle!

Although Clarke claims that synthol is absolutely safe, he nevertheless DISCLAIMED all responsibility for the possible consequences for the body when using it for other purposes than posing oil.

Any injection, even if performed correctly, is potentially dangerous for the body. Almost no one except doctors (and not all doctors) knows the topographical anatomy of blood vessels and nerves. Especially when it comes to small muscle groups. With intramuscular injection, it is very easy to damage one or another nerve, thereby causing paresis (violation of sensitivity) or paralysis of the innervated area.
Getting a needle into a blood vessel (especially a vein) is even more dangerous - in terms of the development of fat embolism of the heart, lungs, and brain, which often leads to a fatal outcome. And even more often there is post-injection infection and the development of abscesses (limited purulent inflammation) and phlegmon (spilled purulent inflammation), requiring surgical treatment.
Among other things, the components of the drug directly stimulate an inflammatory reaction in the muscle, and significant amounts of fatty acids deposited between the muscle bundles for a long time cause ischemia, atrophy and sclerosis of muscle tissue. So, syntol gives you a lot of chances to go to the other world!

Despite this, it is widely distributed among "jocks". Synthol cannot be detected in the body with the help of tests, even magnetic resonance therapy - (this is fat).
All the professionals of the leading federations of bodybuilding use it with caution. It's not about morality. The problem is that it is impossible to predict in advance how the muscle will increase after an injection of synthol. Exactly the same doses, introduced, for example, in the right and left biceps, usually cause different increases in muscle volume on the right and left arm! Attempts with the help of subsequent injections to somehow correct this difference, also do not help much (for this reason, syntol is not used in cosmetic surgery).

In addition, after injection, synthol is very rarely distributed evenly over the volume of the muscle, most often gathering closer to one end of the muscle. Therefore, it is very difficult to see a symmetrical and harmoniously "punctured" sintolschika! But among fans of such "crooked" monsters-as many as you want
