World’s strongest BROTHERS who started weightlifting as toddlers are unrecognisable now as teenagers | The Sun

THE world's strongest brothers who began weightlifting when they were toddlers are now unrecognisable as teenagers.

Six-year-old Giuliano and his four-year-old brother Claudiu Stroe made headlines across the world in 2010 when controversial images of them flexing their muscles emerged.

But twelve years later the two brothers who are now in their teens look completely different.

Yet they are still as fit as a fiddle and can pack a punch because both teenage boys have taken up boxing. 

And according to their social media, Giuliano is training to participate in the youth National Boxing Championship.

As toddlers,the siblings from Icoana in southern Romania could perform amazing acrobatic feats and lift weights.

Dad Iulian Stroe was determined to make them famous and made them do a gruelling two-hour regime each morning.

In 2009, Giuliano was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records after setting the record for the fastest ever 33 feet hand-walk with a weight ball between his legs.

The following year he broke the world record for the number of 90-degree push-ups, which is an exercise where push-ups are performed without letting your feet touch the ground. 

Claudiu followed in the footsteps of his brother and could perform handstand push-ups on a bar.

Both boys would lift 4kg dumbbells and heavy weights to pump up on their biceps and build up their chest muscles.

Many doctors believe that weight training regimes have little positive effect before children reach puberty.

Some warn it could even be harmful because of the risk of injury.

But dad Iulian angrily rejected criticism that he could be damaging the boys' health.

He previously told the Daily Mail: “Someone once told me that the boys won't grow properly, but there's no proof.

“Even a flower will still grow if you put something on it. It's a natural growth.”
