The weightlifter recently claimed to have lifted 5000 kilograms in an event held in Japan in 2012. He claims to consume over 10,000 calories a day, including 36 eggs for breakfast, four chickens, three kilograms of red meat and five litres of milk. This wealthy man from Mardan has been looked up to in his hometown. However, many people claim that his scary looking hulk-ness is a facade. There have been various people worldwide who call this Pakistani Hulk for his fake claims and also raised questions to the authenticity of his videos.
The videos of Hayat which show the heavy man easily gaining control of the vehicles with minimal efforts as the vehicles struggle to get away from the man’s strength. The force used by the vehicles would ideally break the ropes which are attached, but nothing of that sort happens. Another important point that needs to be considered is that Hayat is always seen wearing a traditional Pakistani Pathani and covered with a shawl. This gives him an opportunity to use padding and appear larger that he actually is. His record of having lifted 5000 kilograms is not documented and is merely claims thrown around by the man.
While Hayat claims that he is the strongest man in Pakistan and has also assured that he has no health issues, the heavy lifter may not last in the ring of WWE as stamina is a more important aspect of WWE than strength. However, this is a far fetched thought for the heavy weighted man to consider.
Hayat’s choice of gaining this incredible amount of weight is both dangerous and extremely unhealthy, even if it is with a view of becoming the WWE champion or the strongest man on earth. There is a distinct line between being huge and being strong that needs to be highlighted and clearly Pakistan’s Hulk cannot distinguish this line.
