The Story of Martin Ford
How a thin guy managed to become a giant bodybuilder ">
There are many really big and pumped up guys, but even against their background, Martin Ford looks like a giant. Looking at him today, it is hard to believe that he was an ordinary lanky guy twelve years ago, who was like a nerd, standing out from the crowd only by his height, which is 207 cm. Over the years, a real transformation has occurred with Martin. From a skinny guy who weighed 70 kg, he turned into a real giant, whose weight is 147 kg. A vivid evidence of metamorphosis is a photograph from Ford's Instagram.
The story of Ford's transformation is like the plot of a movie. The life of a professional cricket young guy changed when he was injured during the game. His sporting career as a cricket player was at risk, and his experiences led to stress and dramatic weight loss. Martin with his basketball height and weight of 70 kg looked very depressing.
To get out of depression, Martin was helped by a clearly set goal, which was to return himself to his previous form. When he managed to gain the first 5-6 kilograms, he decided not to stop there and continue to build up mass. This was the beginning of the transformation of a lanky guy into a pumped-up giant.
In an effort to gain muscle mass, Martin was not limited to visiting the gym, he entered the University of Sports Sciences, became a fitness trainer. The efforts and fanaticism of the athlete were not in vain, and the opportunities developed by him are shocking. Martin can do deadlift with a weight of 350, leg press - 750 kg.
Diet and Psychology
At the beginning of his transformation, the bodybuilder paid increased attention to diet. Training programs came later. Today, Martin spends about £ 250 a week on food. The average person consumes about two thousand calories per day. Martin adheres to a completely different norm, reaching up to seven thousand calories per day. To keep fit, the giant needs to eat literally every hour.
Martin makes up his diet in the following ratio: carbohydrates - 40%, fats - 30%, proteins - 30%. This is usually six meals a day. For each meal, he eats from 25 to 35 g of protein, from 40 to 60 g of carbohydrates, from 10 to 15 g of healthy fats. Regardless, the athlete devotes a great deal of time to bodybuilding research and books. According to Martin, the key to success is the correct psychological attitude. It is more important than any nutritional supplement. Without it, it is impossible to achieve meaningful results.
