Martyn Ford

Martyn Ford is a beast. He’s one of the biggest guys I’ve ever seen in my entire life. But who is he? During the last few years, there’s been a crop of athletes that are massive and tattooed that become front and centre on Instagram and further afield. Martyn is one of those. As a 5% nutrition athlete and close personal friend of the late great Rich Piana, Martyn has acquired a huge personal brand and harnessed this to make waves in the Bodybuilding industry and as an actor.

I highly recommend you take a look at his instagram, you’ll be taken back a little and the pictures don’t do this guy justice, he really is huge.

Martyn’s diet as you’d expect is a little extreme, to put it this way, if you’re 145kg and 6ft 8, you’re going to have to put away A LOT of food! He typically consumes between 4500 and 8000 calories per day. Here’s an example of Martyn’s daily diet!

Diet

  • Meal 1: 7 ½ ounces Chicken Breast, 2 tablespoons Udo’s Oil and 3 ½ ounces Green Vegetables
