9-Year-Old Bodybuilder Dubbed World’s Strongest Boy
Giuliano Stroe, nicknamed the ‘Romanian Hercules’, has already broken two world records for 90-degree vertical push-ups and another holding on to a pole like a human flag.
His 7-year-old brother Claudiu is following in Giuliano’s footsteps; the brothers go through exhausting two hour weight-training sessions seven days a week. They are encouraged by their parents Iulian and Ileana.
The world’s strongest boy has his own YouTube channel and he recently sent his friends videos of himself performing amazing 90 degree push-ups before starting Year 5 at school. While some people are impressed by this performance, others are shocked.
Although many people think this lifestyle is neither appropriate nor healthy for a young boy, his father disagrees.
“Critics say that the boys won’t grow properly, but there’s no proof of that. Hard work and exercise are always good. He was very excited about going back to school and he wanted to show his friends he hasn’t been slacking during the holidays. Giuliano is a good pupil and a very bright boy academically but of course his favorite lesson is always PE.”
