The Youngest Bodybuilder in The World

Five-year-old Giuliano Stroe shows off his impressive physique

Giuliano Stroe (born 18 July 2004) is a six-year-old bodybuilder and gymnast of Romanian descent. Giuliano Stroe has been lifting weights since he was two-years-old in Florence, Italy where his family lives.

In 2009, he was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records after setting the record for the fastest ever ten metre (33 feet) hand-walk with a weight ball between his legs. Stroe performed the stunt in front of a cheering live audience on an Italian TV Show, and has become an Internet sensation as hundreds of thousands of people have watched the clip of him performing the stunt on YouTube.

On February 24, 2010 he broke the world record for number of 'air push-ups'; 'which is 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.

Father Iulian Stroe, 33, said: 'He has been going to the gym with me ever since he was born. I always took him with me when I went training.'

He added there is no danger of the youngster harming himself, saying: 'I have been training hard all my life myself.

'He is never allowed to practice on his own, he is only a child and if he gets tired we go and play.'

Giuliano, the oldest of four children, says his stardom has not gone to his head and he still enjoys normal kids stuff like painting, watching cartoons and playing in the park when he is not weightlifting.

But it seems he has picked up a taste for fame during his incredible exploits, revealing he enjoys it when he is applauded after performing.

It sparks memories of Richard Sandrak, who, after his father trained him to become a bodybuilder, aged just three in 1995, was declared The Strongest Boy In The World.

richard_sandrak_03Richard Sandrak was born April 15, 1992, in a small village in the Ukraine. His parents decided he would have a much better life living in the United States, therefore moving to Pennsylvania when Richard was two years old.

Richard began his training soon after they arrived in the states. His father being a master of martial arts introduced him to various stretches and light weight training when he was at a young age.

By the age of five, Richard Sandrak had mastered martial arts and set higher goals to become one of the strongest human beings in the world.

In 1997, Richard and his family moved to California with hopes for Richard’s career taking off. Richard’s father took him to see fitness trainer and performer Frank Giardina, and his wife, Sherry, a former Ms. Fitness America to help with Richard’s career.

In shock, once seeing Richard’s outstanding physique, Frank thought of it to be untrue "At first I thought, "Is this a midget? Or is this some kind of a trick photography," he said.


After choreographing a snazzy routine Richard almost instantly became famous. The boy began appearing in magazines and on television. He endorsed a line of supplements and became the main attraction at bodybuilding events such as Mr. Olympia, Night of Champions, Mr. USA, the Emerald Cup, and one of the biggest there is, the Arnold Classic among many other.

Now that he is older Richard is pursuing a career in acting. He has already stared in a few roles, one of them being the main character in the Hollywood movie, “Little Hercules”.

However, now at the age of 18 his astonishing physique has been lost after his father, who has many to believe was the boy’s driving force to work out, was put in jail for abusing Richard’s mother. Although Richard continues to work out 4 days a week, 90 minutes a day, he has lost his once claimed title as “The World’s Strongest Boy”.
