Almost everyone is familiar with the Hulk, the fictional character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe media franchise. The first impression the image of The Hulk gives is that he's too big to be considered a real man. Because, how can a human be as big as he is?

Well, the reality is upon us in the guise of Sajad Gharibi. This man could stand in the place of the fictional hulk and you'll almost not know the difference.

In this article, you're going to learn about Sajad Gharibi, the Iranian weightlifter and bodybuilder also known as the "Iranian Hulk". He earned this nickname thanks to his enormous size. And when he's not being referred to as the Iranian Hulk, he's called " The Persian Hercules". His fierce facial expression and huge body qualify him to go by either of those names.

The 31-year-old has created an excited state of agitation among fans across social networks. As a result, he has been able to gather almost a million followers on his Instagram. On his Instagram page, you'll find various pictures of him displaying his bare body.

You'll also find videos of him working out and training with his trainers. It's amazing how what is only achievable in fictional movies can be seen in real life. Sajad can lift up to 386 Ibs(175 kg). This is heavy enough to break the backbones of an average man. He participates in powerlifting competitions, both national and international ones.

But how does he lift the 386 Ibs? Is that his Deadlift weight? Squat? Bench Press? He didn't fully specify how he lifts the 386 Ibs. If he lifts that to train just his biceps, then he's considerably strong. It is also equally impressive if that's his bench press too. However, it would be disappointing if he carried 386 Ibs for deadlift or squat weight considering how big and strong he is, he should be able to do better.

Gharibi takes the opportunity of every chance he gets to show off his impressive and massive build on his social media account. And that has made him become a celebrity and an internet sensation. When he started posting, his followers increased from a mere 59,000 to 108,000 within just a few weeks. He posted consistently, and during that time, he also increased in size too and currently he boasts of 992,000 followers on his Instagram.

While some people's jaws still drop from the power that his body exudes, others are still having the conception that his pictures are photoshopped.

Sajad is fond of posting his photos with different hashtags like #strongman, #strongbody and #powerful. In one of his posts, he sends a warning to Triple H to be ready for him. He revealed his ambition to take on professional wrestling and this doesn't come as a surprise to anyone. His strong body, his strength and his high level of confidence are a pointer that he may have a successful career as a professional WWE fighter.
