When we think of bodybuilders, our minds usually conjure up the giants of the sport, like Arnold Schwarzenegger or Lou Ferrigno – aka the original Incredible Hulk. But there’s a new competitor in the field whose sheer size makes those titans look miniscule in comparison. And his name is Sajad Gharibi.
Hailing from Bushehr in Iran, Gharibi is a 24-year-old weightlifter who takes bulking up to incredible extremes. And ever since he started posting pictures to his Instagram account in early 2015, he has steadily been making the internet’s jaw drop with his mind-boggling physique.
Indeed, his frame is nothing to be sniffed at. Sporting 342 pounds of solid muscle, Gharibi is not a man that we’d like to face in a fight. And the fact that he can reportedly lift up to 386 pounds in weights makes his nickname, The Persian Hulk, absolutely appropriate.
