A man who injected home-made liquid in his biceps has been warned his arms may fall off.

Man's muscle craze

Man's muscle craze

The 21-year-old male named Kirill Tereshin pumped a muscle-enhancing substance, which was based on Synthol and made from olive oil, lidocaine and benzyl alcohol, into his arms in a bid to get a fuller frame.

Kirill has injected six litres of the product into his arms, which saw his muscle enhance by an additional 23 inches because he wanted to be famous on social media and never have to work again, the Mirror Online has reported

He said: ''For about a month I was making up to ten injections into each arm every day, using a 20ml syringe.

''If I had used real Synthol, it would have cost me about 400,000 roubles, but as I made it myself, I spent only about 4,000 roubles.

''I did not feel any discomfort in my arms when I was doing it.... my body got used to it.''

However, the male has been told by medical experts he may have to have his limbs amputated in the future as abscesses could develop, and the substance will remain in his system for ''five to seven years'' even if he stops taking the liquid.

A Russian doctor named Professor Evgeny Lilin, said: ''Not immediately but 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.''

And another doctor has likened his muscles to ''jelly with insertions''.

They said: ''Inside the arms of this man there are already pathologically changed tissues that looks like jelly with insertions.''
