The pursuit of a perfect body isn’t necessarily the same for everyone who undertakes it. Everyone has a different vision of perfection which only they can reach.
For some, it’s a waistline too narrow to sustain any organs or a jaw that’s so square its corners can be used to cut boxes.
This is an issue with both men and women, and their beauty standards result in a sort of arms race where either one wants to be seen as the most appealing to their desired targets of affection. But they only have their standards to go by.
Kirill Tereshin, a Russian bodybuilder, had a vision of a perfect body that started and ended between his shoulders and elbows.
To bring that vision into real life, he wasn’t satisfied with his natural-born body and natural muscle gain, so he took a reasonably drastic leap which ended up degrading his health instead of improving his mental image.
His artificial biceps weren’t just fake; they were toxic. He serves as a warning to plastic surgery lovers that there is a step too far and shortcuts not worth taking.
10 /10 Russian Popeye
Kirill is only known for one thing: his arms. And that might be the way he likes it. He purposefully injected his bicep areas with petroleum jelly.
The result was gigantic, swollen, bulging “muscles” and heavily bruised skin that made the rest of his body look downright pathetic by comparison.
His biceps were thicker than his thighs and as big as whole watermelons each, all without a dedicated routine.
9 /10 The Wrong Tool
Plastic surgery for men often results in artificial muscle implants, fat removal, and other sculpting techniques that involve inserting carefully chosen materials into the body.
Petroleum jelly usually isn’t one of them. It’s a widely available substance that doesn’t digest or go away, making it the amateur home surgeon’s top choice for quick “additions” and jobs.
But it’s not good for the body. In fact, in specific amounts and the wrong places, it can be toxic.
