Franklin man has world's largest biceps
MILFORD, Mass. (WHDH) -- A local man's massive muscles have landed him in the record books. It's one thing to be physically fit, but the man goes above and beyond and his giant arms are proof.
Bigger is better says the Franklin man who now holds the title for the world’s largest biceps and triceps. His arms? Thirty-one inches around.
“I have the power to lift a lot,” Moustafa Ismail said.
Moustafa Ismail has been building up to this point for 10 years. He works out seven days a week for two hours a day. He lifts 80 pound dumbbells, he can curl 400 pounds, and he can bench up to 500 pounds. All results of a workout routine that has earned him a world record.
Ismail found out a week ago that he's won a place on the pages of the 2013 Guinness Book of World Records. He says he can't believe he's getting so much attention. Then again, people tend to notice him.
“They stop me when I’m walking in the street. They want to take pictures” Ismail said.
One week after learning he's the world record holder, Ismail was back at his Milford gym. He has a full-time job at a gas station, but he says he can't waste any pumping time there. He hopes to shatter his own record next year and he seems to be on his way.
“I break already my record in the book,” Ismail said.
Ismail told 7News he eats at least five meals a day; most days he eats three pounds of chicken and a pound of fish.
