Check out this guy’s monstrous arms and hands. Thanks to his 19-inch forearms he has been dubbed as the real life Popeye.
Five decades ago a boy named Jeff Dabe was born in Stacy, Minnesota, US. Nowadays this boy is a 52 year old arm wrestling champion going by the nickname Popeye because of his extraordinary looks. Jeff was born with monstrously humongous arms and hands. Medical experts weren’t able to give a specific diagnosis to the guy’s condition. They ruled out elephantiasis, gigantism and any other similar conditions, which could be the cause of Jeff’s looks.
He started arm wrestling when he was in high school and the other kids dubbed him the real life Popeye because of his arms’ size. It turned out that Jeff was pretty good at arm wrestling and he decided to make a career out of it. He went on to compete in various championships and had a flourishing career up until 1986. He popped his right arm in one of the contests. This unfortunate injury forced him to quit wrestling. However, in 2012 Jeff started competing once again – only this time with his left arm. Thanks to the incredible strength hidden in his gigantic arms he became a state champion. Furthermore, he also went to compete in the World Armwrestling Championships!
Nowadays Jeff is married to his wife Gina and he’s happy to travel to all sorts of places with her for competitions. He claims that people are usually shocked by the monstrous size of his hands and arms and that they are also shocked by the fact that Jeff can back up the size with strength. He’s competing against arm wrestlers from all across the US and he’s getting the most out of his career.
