He was the strongest five-year-old in the world. This is what it looks like now [ZDJĘCIA]

The Stroe family has been obsessed with fitness and healthy eating for years. Both Giuliano and his younger brother Claudio quickly started training with weights. When they started their adventure with the gym, Giuliano was two years old and Claudio only 18 months.

Their father, Lulian, infected them with their passion for sports, who believes that “hard work and exercise are always good”. The father did not focus only on bodybuilding exercises, because the boys’ training plans also included acrobatics.

He himself was a boxer in the past and he wanted his children to be more titled than him. The family lived in Florence for a long time, and the father exercised with the boys for two hours every morning. Due to financial problems, Lulian had to return with his family to Romania, where he started selling scrap metal.

He has Guinness records

In 2009, he was entered in the Guinness Book of Records after setting a record for the fastest-ever ten-meter hand walk with a weight-bearing ball between his legs.

On February 24, 2010, he broke the world record for push-ups performed at an angle of 90 degrees, i.e. when the feet do not touch the ground. Stroe did 20 such push-ups live on Romanian TV and broke the previous record, which was also his. In 2011, he was able to perform up to 40 push-ups at an angle of 90 degrees.

Giuliano Stroe does push-ups with his legs up

For several years, the sons have not focused on body building, but are still physically active – they followed in their father’s footsteps and train boxing.

Giuliano still has thousands of fans who accompany him as he grows up. Recently, he published a photo on Facebook, in which you can compare his current appearance to that of 12 years ago. As you can see, the 17-year-old has definitely changed priorities and focuses on speed and dynamics, not muscle size.

The family now hopes to establish a private boxing club where Giuliano and Claudio can train and prepare for the European and world championships. Claudio recently became the youth runner-up in Romania in the under 54 kg category.
