Viking God and Bulk Ambassador Andrew
He’s big, he’s mighty and he’s the best Thor lookalike that we’ve seen, meet Andrew Lutomski.
Bulk Ambassador Andrew is a Canberra based actor and model. He is best known for his work as a character actor particularly his depiction of Marvel character Thor. In fact, he looks so similar to the real-life Thor actor, Chris Hemsworth, it's uncanny!
Andrew’s impressive cosplay has seen him work with the Bulk Nutrients team at Comic Con two years running and appear at multiple Marvel movie premieres as the popular Asgardian god.
Andrew is also an online health and fitness coach and enjoys sharing his passion for the industry with his clients.
Hiya, I'm Andrew, aka Thor of Oz!
Growing up in Canberra as an active young lad, I enjoyed playing most team sports, then becoming quite involved in natural bodybuilding. I have a knack for trying new things and continually challenging myself, setting me abroad from this big country town.
I discovered the world of pop culture and sports entertainment, and in pursuit of creating a long haired, larger than life muscleman, by default I was likened to the character Thor from the movies. This landed me a job as an impersonator which I now travel the country appearing at various events as the God of Thunder.
As a result, I have found sustainable ways to maintain my health and fitness whilst on the road through nutrition and a flexible training approach.
Meeting people all over Oz has been a highlight and using my love for health and fitness in other unique ways, I am an online coach to those wanting to obtain that superhero physique.
As a Bulk Nutrients Ambassador, I enjoy being involved in various sports and communities we actively engage with. Bulk Nutrients has certainly helped my health and well-being on this life journey, which is why I am passionate about spreading the good word through my travels on this great company.

All the products I recommend from Bulk Nutrients are great dairy and gluten free options for building muscle mass and recovery.
Why I love it: I love this product because it is gluten and dairy free which agrees with me. It also provides me with protein for my daily intake goals, from a source other than meat. This flavour also tastes great and is versatile with other ingredients like berries and fruits.
How I use it: Usually in a smoothie made with coconut water and almond milk. I will often add fruit to that. I will also mix a serve with a small amount of almond milk to create a “crumble” consistency.Add 1kg Earth Protein Salted Caramel to cart
Why I love it: This is a well-studied and researched supplement, I feel I retain my strength and fullness in my muscles by taking this supplement.

My gym routine consists of full body workouts 2-3 times a week and 2-3 light cardio sessions. When I’m in the gym I stick to a heavier weight/lower rep range to really stimulate muscle mass growth.
I love to incorporate a few giant sets at the end of a workout to really get a good sweat and burn before finishing.
Full body workout 2-3 times per week:
- Squats - 3 sets of 4-6 reps
- Deadlifts - 3 sets of 4-6 reps
- Bench press - 3 sets, 4-6 reps
- Bent over barbell row - 3 sets 6-8 reps
- Hanging Scapula restrictions
- 3 x Giant set including:
- 10x bicep curls
- 10x close grip push-up
- 10x calve raise
- 10x crunch
- 10x lateral raise
Cardio 2-3 times a week:
- 10-20 minutes walks
- Light run
My approach to nutrition
I have a few guidelines when approaching nutrition that are mainly based around my goals of maintaining muscle, physique and health.
I consume a high protein diet (usually more than 2g per kilo of body weight), while choosing dairy and gluten free options and staying away from highly processed foods.
For my macro breakdown, I set a protein target per day, aiming for around 200-250g, around 300-350g carbohydrates and fats I keep around 60-80g/day with a healthy balance of omegas. I achieve these totals spread out over 3-4 meals a day.
Typically, my morning meal is all protein and fats (meat and nuts) so to gradually increase blood sugar through the morning.
I also aim for 20-30g fibre/day and drink 4 litres of water.
My diet allows for a sensible cheat meal from time to time (2 meals/week) and I don’t mind the occasional alcoholic drink through the week.
The key to a successful diet is all things in moderation!
Foods I avoid... Highly processed foods, dairy and gluten as they trigger me in terms of bloating and stomach discomfort.
Foods I crave... I don’t particularly crave any foods. I prefer a well-earned alcoholic beverage.
Do you have any medium/long term goals you're working towards?
In the short term with some travel on the horizon my goal is to maintain a reasonable shape so that I can continue doing my thing as Thor. This includes maintaining muscle mass, fitness and health.
Long term I aim to continue to bulk up muscle mass while bringing down the bodyfat.
Have you had any exceptional results (in competitions or otherwise) in the last few years? Let us know what they are!
A huge result for me in 2019 was increasing my lean muscle mass, reaching 100kg total body weight! This required some more focussed and consistent training and eating schedules, which I plan to implement again to tie in with my longer term goals.
