INCREDIBLE: Meet the Strongest Children in the World [video]

Romanian brothers Giuliano and Claudiu Stroe are the strongest children in the world. 

Their strength and agility defy what even fully grown adult professionals can perform. Giuliano has already broken two world records for 90-degree vertical push-ups and one for holding onto a pole like a human flag.

The father of child bodybuilder is in fresh controversy after getting the boy to perform a dangerous stunt that involves balancing on glass bottles. Giuliano Stroe, 9, and his seven-year-old brother Claudiu first hit the headlines as they trained to be the world's strongest boys and a video published in 2010 when Giuliano was five-years-old quickly went viral. The tiny muscle 'men' have been performing amazing acrobatic feats and lifting weights since they were toddlers. Giuliano has already broken two world records for 90-degree vertical push-ups and another for holding on to a pole like a human flag. Claudiu followed suit, starting at the age of 18-months, and is already performing handstand push-ups on a bar and learning the same terrifying flag trick. Their father, 38-year-old Iulian Stroe, was determined to make them famous and put them through a gruelling two hour regime each morning in Florence, a city in central Italy, where his family lived. But his plans went awry and he was forced back to Romania. And he has now been reduced to making a living from scrap metal trading in the southern village of Icoana. But he has continued the rigorous training regime, promoting it on the boy's Facebook page which has 3.6 million Facebook likes. But the latest photos showing Giuliano balancing on two bottles using only his hands has received massive criticism. Experts and amateurs alike agreed that the boy could easily slip on the bottles which would most likely smash and cause massive injury to both his hands and possibly his face when he came crashing down to the earth. One user wrote: "And what if the bottle cracks? What chance is there that he wouldn't get a serious injury on the way down?" The criticism was ignored by the father, and it is not the first time that the boy has been shown doing risky exercises. In a video posted recently, the boy does 25 push-ups on his hands on a horizontal bar and with his head down. His younger brother Claudio does the same exercise, but only manages to make 12 push-ups. Although authorities have protested against the father’s attitude, they have so far failed to sanction him because they cannot prove he is harming the children. The boys are undeniably capable of extraordinary feats - but it has been suggested that it is cruel to expect children of this age to train so hard. But both Iulian and his wife Ileana, 33, defend their training regime for their boys. Ileana said: "They have a natural ability for this, nothing is forced, it is what God intended for them." (ends)

Giuliano also performs a human flag for 1.5 minutes and completes 31 human flag pull ups, appearing effortless in a video.

Now 11, and 9, the “tiny muscle men” have been learning acrobatic and body building feats since they were toddlers. They first became famous roughly six years ago when Giuliano posted online a video of himself– at five years-old– performing 90-degree push ups.

Claudiu, by 18-months, was already performing handstand push-ups on a bar. His vertical push ups and human flags, today, appear to defy gravity.

Their father, Iulian Stroe, was determined to make them famous and every morning had them follow a gruelling two hour regime.

Their mother, Ileana says, “They have a natural ability for this, nothing is forced, it is what God intended for them.”
