Giuliano Stroe is a five-year-old bodybuilder who was born in Romania. The Stroe family have since moved to Florence in Italy. In 2009, Stroe set a world record by performing the fastest 10-meter hand-walk with a weight ball between his legs. Stroe has been lifting weights since he was a toddler.
Stroe performed his hand-walking stunt on live television in Italy and was entered into the Guinness Book of World Records.
On February 24, 2010 he broke the world record for number of ‘air push-ups’; an exercise where push-ups are performed without letting your feet touch the ground.
Stroe managed 20 ‘air push ups’ beating his previous record of 12, live on Romanian TV. Stroe has the body of a body builder and has a six pack that many adult men would be envious of.
Stroe has been going to the gym with his Father since the age of two and goes to exercise most days of the week. Stroe’s Father Iulian has received much criticism for pushing his Son but is insistent that Giuliano loves the exercises and wants to do it.
Stroe’s Father Iulian commented “He has been going to the gym with me ever since he was born. I always took him with me when I went training. But he’s still only a child and if he gets tired or bored we go and play.”
Independent Doctors have advised that children should not start weightlifting until the age of thirteen. Stroe started at the age of two and currently has the physique of at least a fifteen year old.
