"My interest in big muscles started way back when I was a little kid. When I watched cartoons, I always preferred the villains to the heroes, and I loved the baddies’ big muscly physiques," he said.

His younger years were tough, as his mother, confined to the bed for a very long time, eventually died when he was 24. Devastated by the death of his mother, Jens went off the rails, and he became involved with local gangs. He was jailed for four years at some point for his involvement.

Released from prison three years ago, he decided to change his life for the better by focusing on bodybuilding. He wanted to achieve a similar shape to the cartoon villains he’d idolized as a child. But it wasn’t easy – he started eating an enormous nine meals a day, and working out five times a week.

"I started lifting weights when I was 18 years old, but it wasn’t anything serious," he says. "It was only a few years ago that I discovered the true potential of bodybuilding and nutrition. To get the big muscles I’d always fantasised about, I ate right, took the right supplements, such as amino acids and whey protein, and learned how to train most efficiently to build muscle mass."

The beast found his beauty while in the gym, getting his muscled bulged. Speaking of Frederikke, his girlfriend of two years, he says "She’s into fitness and bodybuilding but not in the same way as me! And she helps me with with my food preparation."

"My transformation is not over yet, I still have a lot more work to do. There is a never-ending battle between the current me against the better, stronger, bigger version of me that I know I can become."

Jens has over 45,000 followers on Instagram and regularly receives mail from fans who are impressed with his huge size and eccentric appearance.
