Overall efforts of the Iran and Iranian people in a fight against ISIS will be reinforced with a weightlifter dubbed as the Iranian Hulk. He enlisted as a volunteer soldier.
Sajad Gharibi is a 24-year-old weightlifter from Iran who weighs nearly 24 and a half stone and almost all of it is muscle. He announced on social media to his 127,000 followers he is joining Iranian forces fighting ISIS militants occupying Syria.
Despite he looks like an ordinary weightlifter, he claims that is not true because he puts much of his size down to genetics. Gharibi also revealed that he had to deny ongoing rumours about his possible role as the executioner in ISIS ranks, because there was some information about possibility that he is The Bulldozer, notorious ISIS executioner, according to 9 News.
His personal life is a secret, while ending the terrorists’ regime in war-torn Syria is close to his heart, according to his own words. The Iranian Hulk with a fierce expression has a cult following on Instagram where he posts about what he does best – weightlifting.
But he doesn’t do the same things as the most weightlifter and workout obsessives do. His profile doesn’t feature the type of food and workout posts, instead, it displays an array of gobsmacking topless photos of himself and unpretentious pictures of him going about his day to day life.
His huge frame and bulging muscles have earned him the name of Hulk or Hercules. He can lift more than 180kg, which is more than he weighs, and competes in the powerlifting category of competitions. He has also participated in bodybuilding competitions representing his country.
Since getting gaining a following on his social media accounts, the Persian Hercules has quickly become an internet sensation as netizens express their amazement at his impressive build. He writes in Persian but uses English hashtags such as #strongman #strongbody #big #muscles and #powerful.
I personally doesn’t agree that he can become a useful soldier but everyone deserves a shot.
