Strongman who weighed 359lb looks unrecognisable after body transformation

A strongman who once weighed 359lb has shown off his incredible body transformation.

Daniel Garcia, who hails from Gibraltar but now lives in Portsmouth, began competing in 2009 after learning of a Strongman gym in the Hampshire area. He went on to make numerous appearances in events like the Strongman Champions League and Britain’s Strongest Man before taking two years off from competition.

Back in 2013, he revealed his personal bests in various weightlifting disciplines. “My best lifts so far unequipped are: Deadlift 300kg, Squat 230kgs, Log press 140kgs, Super Yoke 420kg, and Farmers 170kg each hand,” he said at the time.

“I weigh in at 140kgs. I’m not looking to get bigger at this time. I feel happy at this weight.”

However, his weight did increase as he tipped the scales at 359lb (25.6st, 163kg) at one time before a dramatic weight loss programme, which he has been documenting on social media.

Back in 2018, he posted a topless picture of himself on Facebook. While he looked in decent shape, he was not exactly ripped. He wrote at the time: “Not looking too shabby for 156kg’s. Always Room for improvement!”

And that improvement is clear to see as Garcia went on to lose more than 60lb. He now weighs in at 291lb (20.7st, 132kg) and says he he is, “Feeling So Much Better, Fitter, Stronger, Faster, Healthier!”

And as part of a motivational message to his followers, he added: “Work Hard And Stick To It, And You Will Get Your Rewards! It's Not A Sprint, It’s A Marathon! Positive Mental Mind Set, Believe And You Will Achieve Peeps!”

Garcia, who proudly goes by the name of Gibraltar’s Strongest Man, recently made his comeback to Strongman competition, finishing 11th in the Ultimate Strongman Southern Qualifiers.
