World's strongest boy does push ups while balancing on glass bottles

The world's strongest boy doing push ups while being held up on the tops of glass bottles shows that he continues to challenge himself.

The clip, released on YouTube Friday, shows seven-year-old Giuliano Stroe balance his hands and feet using green glass bottles.

Once he steadies himself on the small bottle tops, he proceeds to do 12 push ups.

This is not little Giuliano's first brush with fame.

The exceptional pre-schooler performed the fastest ever 10m hand walk with a weight ball between his legs in 2009 and was put into the Guinness Book of World Records for the feat.

Father Iulian Stroe, 36, previously 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.'



Mr Stroe now trains both Giuliano and his younger brother Claudiu in their family home in Romania.

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 kid 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.

In the four days since the latest video was posted, it has been viewed 146,622 times.

And, in terms of applause, he is getting a mixed bag of virtual appreciation, with 245 'likes' and 169 'dislikes'.
