People need to stop lumping in synthol freaks with the word bodybuilding.

THE BREAKDOWN – Is our first ever bodybuilding talk show hosted by Shawn Ray and Tifanny Urrea. Touching upon the most controversial, entertaining, and trending topics in bodybuilding & fitness, our hosts take a deep dive and hold nothing back. These are raw and uncut debates with clashing opinions and, hopefully, a better understanding of the current state of our sport. The Breakdown airs every Wednesday.

Synthol Freaks – wether you love them, hate them, or love to hate them, you’ve probably seen these strange distorted people on your social media feed or YouTube in the past. Men and women who use synthol oil injected into their body parts to create the illusion of massive muscle. And we’re not talking about realistic mass monsters here… we’re talking about full blown cartoon-sized lumps across the body. Is this due to some addictive disorder or just plain stupid people doing stupid things? It’s impossible to tell without deeper research but one question stands out for our industry – do synthol freaks give bodybuilding a bad name?

True bodybuilders and fans know that these kind of people have no connection to professional bodybuilding. They hardly have any connection to the term bodybuilding whatsoever. But what about the average public? Do they blindly see these strange synthol abusers and use that as another mark against the “freakish” world of bodybuilding? Shawn Ray, Tifanny Urrea, and Mac Trucc dive in to decide just how much of a mark these strange sensational people make on the bodybuilding industry.

They also debate about the rising new Classic Physique division and whether or not it will become more popular than Men’s Open in the future. Other topics include: do bodybuilders actually have functional strength? Is crossfit a real threat to bodybuilding? And does the Mr. Olympia Amateur competitions water down the excitement and prestige of the actual pro Mr. Olympia competition in Vegas?

  1. Lol bodybuilding is a GEAR and it should be I want to see FKN FREAKS WHY WOULD YOU GO TO A COMP TO SEE A NORMAL PPL JUICE UP HAAAARD IF YA DONT LIKE IT DONT GO ITS THAT SIMPLE !!!

    I want to see a STEROID OLYMPICS
    ANYONE ELSE AGREE ????

  2. they look ridicules how can they think that looks good. I work my ass off 2 to 3 hrs a day in the gym, I watch my diet everything I eat, and I try to get the proper sleep. its a full time job being a real bodybuilder. you guys look like idiots.

  3. Synthol???? Are you sure? It costs 100$ for 100 ml it’s mct oil with enzymes and you cannot identify a pro synthol user. It’s injected in center of muscle to increase peak. These are just mineral oil injecting freaks other side of aneroxia … bigaroxia…

  4. In my views nobody a real bodybuilder who takes unnatural chemical composition,… If nature given you body with some limits, why should take steroids to magnify its….

  5. ANSWER IS A FLAT OUT NO.

    How the FUCK is synthesis bad for bodybuilding. IT ISNT BODYBUILDING. Synthol just makes the INDIVIDUAL look bad. How the fuck are the two associated in the first place?

    By fucking MORONS bringing up the question to get some bullshit buzzfeed hype. Pissoff skinny desk jockeys. Go wrote for a newspaper.

  6. Nowhere near the same category and shouldn’t even be compared to bodybuilders who put in the hard yards. These synthol users have clear mental health issues about self image.

  7. As you said they’re freaks so by the name you can conclude it all without any doubt. I’ve saw some juice guys in the gym but at least they were trainning to the own proper and not to bring attention of the media to their goals.

  8. The whole point of body building is aesthetics…Who think those guys look ok? If you ask me even normal bodybuilding has gone waaaay off, to build huge muscles with no regard for aesthetics.

  9. To separate things bodybuilding is about building your body in a proportion way this guys using that shit are delusional they look like they were built from different people disgusting
