We all have our things. This Russian ex-soldier likes to inject oil into his arms to make his biceps swell like cartoon sailor Popeye.

The now Internet-famous Kirill Tereschin has raised eyebrows since sharing footage featuring him shadowboxing with massive 24″ biceps.

Medical experts are concerned that the use of this oil could eventually kill him.

The Mirror reports Tereshin is using a “site enhancement oil” called synthol to create his biceps: he’s added 10″ to his arms in just 10 days.

“He could lose movement in his arms, his muscles could turn into balls that he won’t be able to use to lift things,” says Dr. Yuriv Serebryanskiny. “He could end up disabled.”

A pro power-lifter named Kirill Sychev agrees:

“You can see it in his face, there is something unhealthy about it. This is a person who needs complex medical help.”

But Tereshin has no plans to stop. In fact, he hopes the oil will help him break bodybuilding records:

“In order to reach such a size, you need to inject litres into your arms. I was doing it and getting a fever of up to 40 degrees, I was lying in bed, feeling like I was dying, but then it all turned out fine.”
