The gym fanatic Martyn Ford looks gigantic and terrifying human. Why is he so scary? He is huge first there’s his height 6ft 8in, and then there’s his massive size 325 pounds of pure muscle, and the massive body is covered head-to-toe in tattoos.
The Nightmare is a 33-year-old bodybuilder gym fanatic and actor from the United Kingdom.
“I hate feeling skinny and weak; it just depresses me, and it doesn’t feel right. I do have daily challenges, trying to find clothes that fit, cars to drive and having enough food to eat.”
The Nightmare need to eat up to 8000 calories every day to live a ‘normal’ life. Every hour he eats a meal consisting of four chicken breasts, 15 egg whites, and 200g oatmeal.
Interview with Rich Piana
But he was not always big and scary, it all started at the age of 20 when he began to train seriously.
It’s hard to believe that’s even the same person. Obviously, Martyn put down the Smirnoff Ice and picked up the whey protein. It just took him 3 – 4 years to get his current massive size.
So theres some change! 10 years ago i was 13.6 st and now im averaging around 24st. That was me on my 21st birthday night out. Refuelling lol. I trained hard at that point, 3-4 hours a day of training to be exact. I was incredible cardio fit. Just not so much into the weights at this point, can you tell? Lol. So many of you have asked what i ate. Here are a few basic pointers to help you. Im not saying this will transform you over night, but i promise you it will get you on track for muscle gains. •Eat 5-6 meals per day •Each meal aim for 30-40g protein and 35-50g carb (depending on size and training intensity) •Protein sources i use are eggs,chicken and turkey breast,fish and steak •Carbohydrates are rice,sweet potato,oats (mainly) •Eat every 2-3 hours •Consume plenty of calories pre/intra/post workouts •Prepare your food in advance Luckily @lions_nutrition do mine now. Good luck with your gains and remember to keep eating,if your weight isnt increasing,you need to eat more., but only increase amounts slowly each time.#gains #progress #determination
The funniest thing about this photo is the genuine fear on the ladies face lol this has become somewhat of a requested photo of late. Im just glad they all end in smiles and handshakes or i would be so sore after each expo!

The guy is living proof that any average human can grow to be someone who invokes terror in his fellow man.
