A Brazilian jock who infused himself with oil for greater muscles passed on his 55th birthday celebration.

Valdir Segato had been involving possibly lethal infusions of Synthol for a really long time, taking a chance with strokes and contaminations, to get tremendous biceps, pectorals and back muscles.

Segato recently said his body motivations were Arnold Schwarzenegger and imaginary people like the Hulk.

“They call me Hulk, Schwarzenegger and He-Man constantly and that’s what I like. I’ve multiplied my biceps yet I actually need to be greater,”

he said in 2016, as per the Daily Mail.

Quite a while back, the São Paulo local was cautioned he would confront removal, or if nothing else nerve harm and muscle deformation, because of the infusions on the off chance that he kept on utilizing them.

His biceps exploded to 23 crawls after he began infusing himself. He had come to be known as “the beast” in the city and was pleased with his title.

He posted images of his body transformation on social media and even called himself “Valdir Synthol” on Instagram.

While the bodybuilder had 1.7 million followers on TikTok, local media reported that he lived an isolated life with few friends or visitors.

Moisés da Conceição da Silva told Brazil’s Globo news that Segato rented a property built behind his family’s house, and on the day of his death, he was complaining about shortness of breath.

“It was around 6 a.m., more or less. He came crawling through the back house and came to the front. Then he knocked on my mother’s window, knocked, knocked, then she woke up and he said ‘Help me, help me because I’m dying,’”

da Silva told the publication.

Segato was taken to a medical facility, but he fell at reception, appearing to have a heart attack.

The TikTok star used to be a scrawny teen, but after being offered Synthol in the gym, he became hooked on the substance.

Synthol usually consists of a mixture of oil, benzyl alcohol and lidocaine and can cause

“a damage of nerves, oil embolic of the pulmonary, occlusion of the pulmonary artery, myocardial infarction, cerebral stroke and infectious complications,”

according to Europe PubMed Central.

The results of the drug did not make Segato any stronger and were purely cosmetic.

“It’s the risk he takes,”

Segato’s friend Fernando Carvalho da Silva has previously said.

“He wants to look good and wants to be famous.”
