Little Hercules - Richard Sandrak & World's Strongest Kid - Giuliano Stroe










Richard Sandrak (born 15 April 1992), also known as Little Hercules, is a Ukrainian-born, American bodybuilder, martial artist and actor, renowned for his muscular physique at an extremely young age. He is probably best known for his appearance in the documentary The World's Strongest Boy, which has been shown on several TV channels across the world, and for his dedication to bodybuilding.



Giuliano Stroe (born July 18, 2004) is a 6-year-old gymnast of Romanian descent. Giuliano Stroe has been lifting weights and learning gymnastics since he was two-years-old in Florence, Italy where his family lived. They now live again in Romania. In 2009, he was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records after setting the record for the fastest ever ten metre (33 feet) hand-walk with a weight ball between his legs. Stroe performed the stunt in front of a cheering live audience on an Italian TV Show, and has become an Internet sensation as hundreds of thousands of people have watched the clip of him performing the stunt on YouTube. On February 24, 2010 he broke the world record for number of 'air push-ups'; 'which is an exercise where push-ups are performed without letting your feet touch the ground. Stroe managed 20 'air push ups' beating his previous record of 12, live on Romanian TV. Giuliano's father Iulian, 33-years-old, said he has been taking Giuliano with him to the gym ever since he was born, but he is careful not to push Giuliano too hard. Stroe insists his son's workout schedule isn't excessive. "He is never allowed to practice on his own, he is only a child and if he gets tired we go and play," Iulian said.

Cutaneous horns, also known by the Latin name cornu cutaneum, are unusual keratinous skin tumors with the appearance of animal horns, or sometimes of wood or coral.

They are usually small and localized, but can in very rare cases be much larger.

Although often benign, they can also be malignant or premalignant.

The cause
of cutaneous horns is still unknown, however it is believed that exposure to radiation can trigger the condition. This is evidenced by a higher rate of cases occurring on the face and hands, areas that are often exposed to sunlight. Other cases have reported cutaneous horns arising from burn scars.

Removal:
As the horn is composed of dead keratin, the same material found in fingernails, the horn can usually be removed with a sterile razor. However, the underlying condition will still need to be treated. Treatments vary, but they can include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.

Description of modifications
:
* extensive tattooing, including facial tattooing
* hairline modification
* facial transdermal implants to allow the wearing of whiskers
* facial subdermal implants to change the shape of the brow, forehead and the bridge of the nose (a planned future implant on the top of his head for mounting tiger-like ears)
* filing and capping of his teeth to have a more feline appearance
* wearing green contact lenses with slit irises
* having his ears surgically pointed and the earlobes elongated
* silicone injection in the lips, cheeks, chin and other parts of his face

Avner himself claims not to keep track of the money he has spent on body modification[citation needed], although some sources do state a total. Avner, whose parents were of Huron and Lakota heritage, states that altering oneself to resemble one's own totem is an ancient Huron tradition. The former Navy sonar technician who currently works as a computer programmer took on the name Stalking Cat and began his modifications after a discussion with a Native chief who reportedly inspired him to 'follow the ways of the tiger'. As a result of his unusual appearance, Stalking Cat has attained local celebrity status and frequently travels to attend interviews and photo sessions. Stalking Cat has been featured on Ripley's Believe It or Not!, Larry King Live, VH1's "Totally Obsessed", Kerrang! Radio's "The Night Before", he has also been interviewed on the BBC Choice program, "Anna in Wonderland" episode 6x30, and other television and radio shows. Many of Stalking Cat's body modifications have been performed by Arizona based artist Steve Haworth. The first artist to begin the extensive tattoo work on Dennis's face was Larry Hanks of San Diego in 1985. He also tattooed scales on him and at this time Stalking Cat was referred to as "Cat Fish" although not by choice.

Gregg Valentino has World's Biggest Biceps

Gregg Valentino is one of the most controversial yet popular bodybuilding icons. He started bodybuilding at the age of 13. After over 23 years of training naturally Gregg decided to experiment with steroids. During this time his arms grew from an impressive 100% natural 21" to an in-human 28". But after years of steroids injections, his body finally fought back; his bicep "exploded,".











Some readers (read joe specially) have commented: "Gregg Valentino did not abuse steroids to get those freakish arms, he literally injected oil, or synthol into his muscle, filled it with liquid. That is why they are disproportionate."
