Feast your eyes on our latest freakshow gallery of Synthol abusers from around the world. Forget about tone, forget about definition, forget about symmetry, forget about strength, all that matters to these gentlemen is having the biggest, gnarliest, most pillow-y biceps on the entire internet. Body dysmorphia comes in all shapes in sizes, but these guys* only come in two: big and weird.
The fact of the matter is these oddly enlarged muscle bellies are the result of a class of products known as “site enhancing oils”. These oils, which came into existence around 25 years ago, are widely available on the internet through a variety of distribution channels. The most famous of which being “Synthol” AKA “PumpNPose”.
Other known brands of this product are Syntherol, EsikClean, Nuclear Nutrition Site Oil, Cosmostan and Liquid Muscle. They are completely legal, and all these brands are available on Amazon, see for yourself!
When used judiciously it is the subject of great controversy in the world of competitive bodybuilding. Bodybuilders can utilize these oils to make subtle changes in lagging muscle groups that can be difficult to detect by appearance alone.
When used recklessly, the result is a freakshow.
UPDATE: We’ve added a fresh new batch of these sideshow wannabes. For some reason, there’s more and more of them popping up every week. Will they ever learn?
- Step 1: Inject heroic amounts of Synthol into your body to pretend that you’re strong.
- Step 2: Get put on blast at SMB.
He’s struggling to lift it, you can tell…

Synthol: Origin Story
We’re just getting started…
These substances are injected directly into the target muscles, where they stretch muscle fascia. The theory is that as they are broken down by the body over a period of several months, the space left by them is replaced with new muscle tissue growth. Upon injection, roughly 70% of the oil remains in the muscle, while the other 30% is absorbed into the body as lipids. These substances do not inherently contain any androgenic steroids although users of site enhancing oils are of course far more likely to use performance enhancing drugs. As with any non-medically administered injectable, usage carries high risks.
It gets worse…
Now it’s time for some classics:
It begs the question. Do they know that they aren’t fooling anyone, or are they deluded into thinking people can’t tell? Do they care? It’s like the 90lb woman who starves herself yet still sees a whale when she looks in the mirror. Rational people can’t make sense of it, it’s a sickness, a disease… Should we oogle at these people like freakshows, or look on with sympathy?
