Gregg Valentino was an aspiring bodybuilder long before he became known as “The man whose arms exploded”. He was in the Guinness book as the man with the biggest biceps. He went through intensive work-out routines, but his enormous biceps got him a spot in the Guinness book not only due to hard work-outs. What Gregg Valentino didn’t know at that time was that he was going to pay a great price for using steroids.
After having used drugs for years, Gregg became negligent : he was reusing needles and didn’t pay attention to important stuff like sterility. His body was so pumped up that his biceps looked like pin-cushions. One of his arms got infected and later blew up, filled with pus from the infection. Gregg decided to take matters into his own hands, so he tried to drain the pus by himself. Of course, things only got worse and he ended up in the emergency. The surgeons were forced to cut out his biceps.
But the worst part was just around the corner. Gregg got arrested and sent to jail not only for using drugs, but also for distributing the illegal steroids to other body-builders.
