The Man Whose Arms Exploded

The Man Whose Arms Exploded

THE MAN WHOSE ARMS EXPLODED looks at the world of extreme bodybuilding and the price people are prepared to pay - both financially and physically – to get to the top.

Gregg Valentino wanted to be special… to really stand out in a crowd.

His dream? To become the man with the world’s biggest arms.

At his peak Gregg’s arms measured a massive 28 inches in diameter bicep muscle… but at what cost?

To achieve his dream, Gregg had become his own doctor and pharmacist, concocting ever increasing variations of drugs to enhance his size. When dirty needles infected his bicep, the consequences were explosive and Gregg was forced to become his own surgeon.
