BRAZILIAN Arlindo ‘The Mountain’ de Souza is causing a storm in the bodybuilding community thanks to his 29 inch biceps.
However, it is the way he has achieved the look, through injecting baby oil and alcohol, that has gotten him the attention.

Despite such a practice killing a close friend of his it hasn’t stopped de Souza from continuing with the dangerous practice. The 43 year old had previously taken steroids, hormones and horse vitamins in order to bulk up before being encouraged to use oil and alcohol.
The concoction is absorbed into the body to give the appearance of muscle but doesn’t mean that de Souza can lift any heavier than he could prior to trying this craze. It took him just three months of injecting it three times a day to achieve his look.
However, the cocktail can lead to the development of abscesses in the muscle tissue causing amputation and, as mentioned previously, even death.
He has now claimed to have stopped with the injections and can only hope that the damage hasn’t already been done to his body.
