In 2017, the popular fitness network Generation Iron interviewed Kenneth “Flex” Wheeler. In the interview, Wheeler discussed allegations of using site enhancement oils, commonly — albeit mistakenly — known as synthol. Wheeler was making a comeback in 2017. He planned on competing in the 2017 Mr. Olympia Classic Physique division at the age of 51.

1. Kenneth “Flex” Wheeler
There are very bodybuilders who are willing to openly discuss their use of site enhancement oils. In the previously mentioned interview, Wheeler admits that he tried using site enhancement oil to increase the size of his arms and shoulders. He already had immensely powerful arms and shoulders during the ’90s, and he was arguably at the top of his game at the time.
2. Romario Dos Santos Alves
For the love of all things good in this world, do not abuse site enhancement oil as Romario Dos Santos Alves did. While there are certainly benefits to using a site enhancement oil, Alves took things way to far in the pursuit of a bigger body.
Alves started off wanting to look like the Incredible Hulk. He frequented a gym in Goiania, Brazil where some other bodybuilders introduced him to synthol. As we have previously discussed, synthol is a harmful form of site enhancement oil, and should never be used. Alves didn’t know any better at the time, and he was addicted to seeing the bulking in his arms that was caused by the synthol.
Eventually, Alves’ 25-inch arms became a medical problem that almost led to amputation. Today, Alves is living a healthier, more balanced life. Because he abused synthol so hard, he has vowed never to use any drugs or site enhancement oils. Alves still plans on competing in bodybuilding competitions, but he wants to do it the natural way.
3. Rich Piana
Piana is somewhat of a controversial figure in bodybuilding, especially after his death in 2017. While Piana undeniably used steroids and growth hormone, he also admitted to using snythol site enhancement oil for a period of time.
After using site enhancement oil, he wasn’t happy with the results. He noted that the use of site enhancement oil can increase size, but it blurs the line between muscle and size. Instead of using site enhancement oil, Piana stuck with anabolic steroids and human growth hormone.
Piana was a big advocate for staying natural and for bodybuilders to stay free of any performance-enhancing drugs.
4. Moustafa Ismail
Ismail was crowned by the Guinness Book of World Records with the title World’s Largest Biceps in 2012. Ismail adamantly denies ever having used steroids, and he had never heard of synthol until the accusations were lodged against him. He claims that his 31-inch arms are completely natural, although he did take testosterone supplements for a period of time when he lived in Egypt.
The reason why so many people accused Ismail of taking and using synthol was that the rest of his body is relatively small, underdeveloped, and less-than notable.
Just to give you an idea of the comparable size of this man’s arms, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s arms measured 22 inches at his peak, and Hulk Hogan’s measured 24 inches. Ismail’s arms are approximately 50 percent bigger than Arnold Schwarzenegger’s arms. Ismail continues to deny using any site enhancement oil, although the rest of the community keeps a skeptical, watchful eye over the Guinness record holder.
