A 31-year-old bodybuilder originally from Egypt who claims he has never taken steroid, will appear in Guinness Book of World Records 2012 for having the largest bicep.
Moustafa Ismail, who says he got his 31 inch biceps from pumping iron twice a day for the last ten years, says his diet also plays a role in maintaining his massive guns.
Although he looks like the cartoon character Popeye, “Big Mo”, as he is known to friends, says he doesn’t like Popeye’s muscle building food spinach.
Instead of eating spinach the bodybuilder says he eats 3lbs of chicken, 1lb of fish or steak and four cups of almonds, two gallons of water and three liters of protein shakes.
Ismail said when he first started working out his goal was not to necessarily get buffed, but it was more to stay fit. He said after his biceps began to grow and he started receiving compliments from people, he started competing in bodybuilding competition.
Five years ago Ismail moved from Egypt to Massachusetts after he failed to place in the Egyptian bodybuilding competition.
