Moustafa Ismail is often dubbed the Real-Life Popeye, for his massive 31-inch (79 cm) upper arms. He was even featured in this year's Guinness Book of Records.

“Egyptian Popeye” claims he is all natural, and that he never used steroids to enhance his muscle mass, according to the Inquisitr.

The 24-year-old bodybuilder from Massachusetts describes his diet and strict exercise routine is what keeps him pumped and looking freakishly strong.

Every day, he eats seven pounds (3.2 kg) of protein and nine pounds (4 kg) of carbohydrates, and he hydrates himself by drinking three gallons (11 l) of water. He lifts weights for 2 hours per day, and can even bench 600 pounds (272 kg).

However, if you ask me, his extremely developed arms, paired with the tiny lower half of his body, make him look a bit cartoonish.
