A few years ago you could hardly find how some details about synthol in ruskoyazychnyh media. It almost was not. Now only the lazy have not heard about this - so many papers ... Although they are essentially clones small transferable little articles that appeared in "Muscle & Fitness" for May 2001, and we must pay tribute, has contributed to the spread of this shit with us. However, it has been particularly active this theme became obsuzhdatsya on various sites and forums is in the last year. And I must say pleased that straights and users of steroids in the majority agree that the use of synthol - the prerogative of seriously ill people in the head without the sport in any way. And now in order.
History of creation.
So it is assumed that the conversation about creating synthol begin by mentioning esiclene. Let me remind you that this drug has received huge popularity back in the 80s, it has an extremely low anabolic activity, but has the property intramuscular injections cause severe inflammatory reaction, which is a consequence of the swelling and thus a short-term (about 24 hours) increase in muscle volume. These properties and led to the widespread use of esiclene competing bodybuilders. And at the same time prompted the German chemist amateur Chris Clark on the idea that a good idea to create a similar long-acting drug. Resulting in the early '90s he Syntol composition (http://ru.fishki.net/picsw/072008/07/synthol/synthol) - like the name of one of the most powerful nuclear fusion technology. However, the name appeared already patented, so it was invented new - «Pump'N'Pose» (shakes and posing). Under this brand name drug is now sold all over the world.
One of the first users synthol was German strongman Klaus Doring, calling himself "the owner of the largest arms in the world," the size of 27 inches (this umolishёnnogo You will see). At the end of the article in the cabinet of curiosities, and you will realize that now there is nothing unusual. A couple of inches using synthol - a common occurrence. And kolyat it now not only in the biceps and triceps, but also igronozhnye, quadriceps, deltoid and pectoral muscles.
Clark found true gold mine (for myself of course), as provided an opportunity for thousands of people willing to do anything for MASS virtually trouble-free method that does not shun any amateur or pro. $ 400 - this is the price of a bottle synthol, which is banned for use in the "intended purpose" by all federations and committees, but is sold worldwide as the oil for posing.
Synthol 85% consists of C8 fatty acids (MCT- Medium Chain Triglycerides - triglycerides of medium chain), some amounts of C10 and C12 fatty acids, 7, 5% lidocaine (a local anesthetic), 7, 5% benzyl. In simple terms this oil (fat) with some Analgesic substances. The drug is injected deep into the muscle, which is deposited between bundles of muscle fibers. With repeated injections, the volume of oil in the muscle grows, increasing its size, just as the balloon expands when filled with air. About 30% of the drug is metabolized by the body. The remaining 70% are in the muscles, which are stored for more than 3-5 years and are subject to a very slow decay. Regarding the duration of synthol there a lot of debate, but for the most part, they boil down to the fact that synthol delayed muscle at a much longer period than was stated - at least 8 years.
As used synthol? "The injections are made with a fine needle to a depth of one-quarter inch. During the first 20 days of daily 1 ml. Even 10 days - 2 ml. Then 3 ml daily until the muscle will increase its volume. When growth stops, within 30 days, 1 ml daily. Another 30 days - 1 ml twice per day. Then 1 ml per week for one month. Only after passing this course volume gain muscle becomes permanent, and the muscle is not reduced. After 4 months course it is necessary to repeat once again: it may be possible to achieve the new additions volume (although the odds are not so great, about 50 to 50). " From the point of view of medicine is very similar to schizophrenic obsession. Just imagine - a minimum of 275 ml in one arm, at least 250 injections into one muscle!
Training users synthol.
Probably many have heard about what training using synthol (do not dare call them athletes) take on extraordinary completeness, becoming "a truly heavy." Every now and then you read about the "extraordinary pampa" that arms after one approach in any upper body exercise "hammered" as after hundreds of approaches any exercise at hand. All this shows firstly the absolute illiteracy consumers themselves, and secondly, the absolute literacy of those who sell this stuff. Therefore clarified. Actually pampas (pumping) - is a subjective sensation that occurs in the Results amplified blood flow to the working muscle, which occurs due to the expansion of blood vessels and increase the blood supply to the muscles, respectively, perceived as bursting, and so on. N. As for the severity of training and "clogging" of muscles, then everything is determined by functional ischemia working muscles (ie. e. Although blood flow and increased, but it is still insufficient to ensure adequate muscle oxygen), is the result of anaerobic glycolysis, lactic acid, burning and pain in the muscles. What happens if between muscle fibers is synthol? Everything is very simple. During the same approach will suspend oil mechanically compresses the blood vessels and nerve endings that feels like pampas, burning, "clogging muscle" muscle practically do not work.
The danger of using synthol.
"Although Clark argues that synthol absolutely safe, however in one of the editions of" Uncensored "Grega Zulaka He took full responsibility for the possible consequences for the organism, when it is used for purposes other than oil for posing." This is a quote. It's funny to read. Now, seriously.
Any injections, even correct performance of potentially hazardous to the body. Virtually no one other than the doctors (and not all doctors) do not know the topographic anatomy of the blood vessels and nerves. Especially when it comes to small muscle groups. Thus. intramuscular injection is easy enough to damage a particular nerve, causing paresis (violation of sensitivity) or paralysis of innervated area.
Contact the needle into a blood vessel (particularly in the vein) is much more dangerous in terms of fat embolism of the heart, the lungs, the brain, which is often fatal. Much more often postinjection infection and abscesses (limited purulent inflammation) and abscesses (diffuse purulent inflammation), requiring surgery.
In addition the components of the drug directly stimulate an inflammatory response in the muscle, and substantial amounts of fatty acids for a long time between the depositing muscle bundles cause ischemia, muscular atrophy and sclerosis of tissue. Think of at least 250 chances to go to the light!
Ethics and aesthetics.
When it comes to that IFBB has banned the use synthol makes me laugh. IFBB with its prohibitions is a mockery of themselves. They require monsters and monsters are not forced to wait long. But if the use of steroids has nothing to do with natural sports synthol it has nothing to do with sport in general - it's from some other world ... the world of mutants, or something. And it has nothing to do about it fair to the guy with steroid 50 cm hand lose sintolovomu man with the shoulder and upper arm 56 cm 27 cm and then where are naturals. No. Just sick of all this.
