Though it's highly unusual (and possibly unhealthy) for a child to start weight training at such a young age, the pre-schooler entered the record books earlier this year after completing the fastest ever 10-meter walk with a weight ball between the legs, which is both both highly impressive and highly specific. Since then, a four-minute video of Stroe has hit the Internet and made him a viral sensation.
It looks like a training montage from a Rocky movie, minus the Survivor soundtrack. (And, interestingly, Guiliano Stroe is almost the same size as Sylvester Stallone.)
0:32 -- The "Crouching Tiger" wall flip.
0:41 -- Backflips on the kitchen table. Even Richard Heene thinks that's questionable parenting.
1:43 -- Doing barbell curls with toddlers dancing to 50 Cent in the background.
3:19 -- More flipping, this time from a high bar.
3:39 -- My arms hurt from just watching that.
The pre-schooler's gymnastic skills are every bit as impressive as his weightlighting prowess. Both sports are national obsessions in Romania, so Stroe should have plenty of options when he becomes a teenager ... in 2017.
While its becoming an internet phenomenon, and its impressive to see such great discipline and development - I cannot help but be disturbed by it. Of course we want to raise kids to be disciplined and healthy - but this is the age for them to be a kid - run around with a sugar rush from candy - have fun playing with kids. Should they be really training kids so young like this?

Thats too much...Now a days for olypic or karate ,or other sport section ppls send their children for these activites very young age....Now a days ppl try to make a child old before he is old, don't crush him. That's what has happened in the world..... old people are dominating children, and they want to pull them out of their childhood faster than nature allows. They kill and they crush the child loses something forever.n when a child was not a child when he was a child... If a child is allowed freedom during his initial years, he will grow in strength and have enough intelligence to decide and to discuss.

Its often a case of parents wanting to live out their ambitions that they cud not achieve themselves thru their children. Its robbing their kids of their childhood .dedication & discipline is GR8 but one shud not imprison the childs spontainiety.
