Two young lads in Romania are putting us all to shame by weight training every day and being absolutely ripped at the mere ages of just 10 and eight-years-old.
According to the Daily Mail, the young brothers follow an intense and rigorous training schedule in order to achieve their ridiculously buff physiques.
Many professionals have pointed out the dangers of this kind of regimen, given that the boys are kids and the whole thing seems mental, but their dad, Iulian, rejects the claims that he is ruining his sons’ health.
The oldest of the two boys, Giuliano Stroe aka. ‘Little Hercules’, became famous internationally after he appeared on a TV show at the age of just five, doing push-ups and lifting weights that an adult would struggle with.
Giuliano and his younger brother Claudio have been performing amazing acrobatic feats and lifting weights since they were toddlers, as their rather bizarre social media channels have shown to the world.
Reportedly, Giuliano has already broken two world records for 90-degree vertical push-ups and another for holding onto a pole like a human flag. As you do…
Apparently, he next hopes to set the record for the most 90-degree push-ups with one hand.
I mean, sure, it’s impressive but you can’t help but worry for the two lads’ health, given that most advice tells guys not to lift weights until at least the age of 16.
But, hey, who am I to argue? These kids have better six-packs than I could ever manage myself!
