issue the boy is 12 yrs old! and he’s
already a T-man! this helps if you suscribe to SI, so if anyone has a scanner put it up on this thread or
Powerful Images.

My friend saw him on one of those tabloid news shows. I’d like to see that article.

I’ve seen a story on this several years ago. I believe that it said that at 9/10 years old, he could squat 95lb for like 50 straight reps.

He was born without the gene that produces myostatin I think. He puts on muscle like Kristy Alley puts on chins.

Is this the T boy??

that’s him

Some of those little gymnastic kids would give him a run for his money…Or just beat his ass…

Wasn’t this kid on Howard Stern a while back? I think he was the topic of debate here a while ago, and everybody pretty much said he was having his childhood ruined by his pushy parents/handlers.

Doesn’t he look a little like Eric Estrada in that link?

Check out the pictures at the bottom of this page:

Too late, he is already a celebrity:

His parents obviously don’t give a shit about him because it looks like he hasn’t had a fuckin haircut in years.

Umm…he’s called the world’s STRONGEST boy, not the world’s most ripped boy correct? While I admit he’s ripped beyond belief for his age, the title is a bit of a misnomer without lift numbers. And I looked around, and guess what? I couldn’t find them.

bench press 200lbs
barbell curl sets of 90lbs
chest–35
arms–12
quad–19

Are you serious? You are actually going to make a statement that implies he is not the real deal? He is twelve… let that sink in for a while.

200 pound benchpress? Wow. And I was not trying to belittle him, it just angers me when people think size and strength are the same thing. BTW, he’s still not as impressive as that Russian girl. I bet at 12 she has a higher total in the big three than he does.

anyone else want to get those two super kids to mate and create an army of super soldiers?

o I can’t be the only one.

Ok how about a REALLLLLLYYYY good soccer team?

What are the odds the parents are giving the poor kid steroids and/or gh to make a buck off him? If they’re not, great, if they are there should be an extra jail cell somewhere to accomodate them.

I remember seeing him on Ripley’s Believe it or Not. It was pretty impressive what he could do. I thought it said they had a doctor who checks him out regularly to make sure he is developing okay. More power to him.

Funny, I remember seeing this kid when I was a kid, but I’m 29 now and he’s still a “kid???”

in espn the mag they had an article that he was in and he can do 100 behind the neck pullups in a row then he stops cause he’s bored. He eats 1/2 jar of honey a day and doesn’t eat animal fats, just chicken and fish. Crazy.

Actually, I think in time he will be unceded.

I read an article about a baby born in Germany with a Myostatin mutation. Less than a year old the baby can hold a ball equal to a high percnetage of his bodyweight with his arms straight and in front of him. His muscles mass is many many times outside the statistical norm.

The article, which I can’t remember where to find, went on to say that the baby will likely be studied his entire life as his genetic mutation may help unlock the mysteries behind muscle loss due to severe illness.

Talk about great genetics!

What do you know, I found it.
