London, Feb 25 (ANI): Five-year-old Guiliano Stroe has made it into record books for a second time by creating a new world record for "air push-ups".

Guiliano, who is believed to be the world's strongest boy, performed 20 air press-ups live on Romanian television.

The exercises involve raising the body from a horizontal position into a handstand with the feet never touching the ground and are unusually performed by adult bodybuilders.

However, Guiliano broke his second Guinness World Record by performing the physically demanding exercises 20 times in a row, shattering the previous high of 12.

The young Romanian, who has been lifting weights since the age of two, made his first world record last year when he clinched the title for the quickest ten-metre handstand walk, which he completed while holding a heavy ball between his legs.

His father Iulian Stroe, 33, a former gymnast, said Guiliano is fond of striking macho poses and performing to crowds in Italy, where he lives.

"I took him with me to training at the gym ever since he was born," the Telegraph quoted him, as saying.

Stroe added: "But he's still only a child and if he gets tired or bored we go and play." (ANI)
