Now days we see a lot of adverts online telling us how we can ‘get huge in six months.’ The reality is, the method is no secret. Getting in shape is all about discipline, dedication, diet and training.
There’s no half-ass route to being a ripped monster like Martyn Ford is. There’s also no general base you need to possess to become a big and bulky beast. Talk of body types is becoming old hat with the various training methods and supplements available today.
On to the topic, Martyn Ford:
This huge dude has a very interesting story. He started his adult life as a 6 Ft 8 skinny teen, with dreams of becoming a professional cricket player. Here’s some quotes of NightMar from SimplyShredded.com:
I was training to become a professional cricket player and during that time I sustained a really bad injury. After my injury, I managed to get really bad glandular fever that basically cost me 9-12 months at a vital time in my career.
The end result was that I had to give up my dreams of being a professional cricket player, and I had to find a new focus for my hunger. Then I decided to enter the world of bodybuilding and I absolutely loved it!
How Did He Do It?
Well, according to Martyn Ford, he spends around £250 per day on food, and eats every hour he is awake. From Uproxx:
I never really had a goal as such, I just wanted to be bigger. Twelve years on, I seem to be that for sure, but there’s still more to achieve with my physique. The initial transformation I would say took two to three years. You were definitely looking at two different people then, for sure.
Here’s a cool video about ‘Nightmare,’ followed by his advice for the skinny kid looking to get bigger:
Ok so many people have messaged me about getting weight on. I’m holding the secret, FOOD. No matter what people presume or shout about, this is very much needed! It’s vital. So this post is aimed at the new comer, the fresh starter and skinny kid. Aim to hit 6 meals at first, you need to start the day well, make sure you eat pretty much as soon as you wake up, no excuses , this is vital! For the hard gainer I would aim for a macro breakdown of 40% carbs and 30% protein and fats. Looking at around 25-35g protein each meal, and consuming around 40-60g carbs and 10-15 g healthy fats, these are very much guesstimates! But will get you in the ball park at least. Consume vegetables with All meals and try to mix up the types of whole food your eating. Prepare your food to take with you, never leave the house with no food! Vital mistake made by many! Drink plenty of water And record results, if not weight is going on, increase your calories by around 350-500 kcal per day. And last of all, good luck!
