Viking God and Bulk Ambassador Andy Leigh

He’s big, he’s mighty and he’s the best Thor lookalike that we’ve seen, meet Andy Leigh.

Bulk Ambassador Andy 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!

Andy’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.

Andy is also an online health and fitness coach and enjoys sharing his passion for the industry with his clients.

Andy Leigh dressed as Thor

Hiya, I'm Andy Leigh, 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.

Having come a long way with my own health andf fitness journey, I'm now focussing on helping friends and the community in achieving their full potential to lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

I'm often seen at events in my Thor costume and I've taken a keen interest in helping others achieve their ideal “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 about Bulk Nutrients through my travels.

My approach to nutrition

I aim for 3000 calories per day, spread over around 6 meals, with around 250g protein as a target. I avoid gluten and lactose because I feel better not eating it.

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 of 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.

Foods I avoid... Gluten and lactose because I feel better not eating it.

Foods I crave... I don’t particularly crave any foods. I prefer a well-earned alcoholic beverage.
