“BODYBUILDER boy” Amir the Hulk has been dubbed the new “Mini Hercules” after an Instagram video shows the toddler parading around with his huge muscles.
The tanked tot reportedly suffers from a condition that means he cannot stop piling on the muscle.
In a clip shared online by his uncle before going viral among bodybuilding enthusiasts on YouTube, the youngster parades around the home flexing his muscles.
At one point, Amir is asked tense and shows off his abs, chiselled biceps and shoulders and his ripped back.
Bodybuilding enthusiast Xavier Wills says little Amir is already being compared to Mini Hercules Richard Sandrak, who, at eight years old, had a complete six-pack.
Richard also used his incredible flexibility to master of karate and bend his body into unfeasibly contorted positions.
At one point he was reported to have one per cent body fat, which is potentially fatally low.
Xavier cited a post by Amir’s uncle explaining the toddler suffered from Berardinelli Seip and a lack of Myostatin.
Berardinelli Seip is a rare genetic disorder that is characterized by the near total loss of body fat and extreme muscularity at birth. Whatever fat Amir has is instead stored in the organs, liver, and muscles, which is why he has such a slender physical appearance.
Myostatin is a vital protein that stops us from developing too much muscle mass. A lack of it can lead to muscle over-development.
Amir isn’t the only kid to hit the headlines for their impeccable physique.
Tristyn Lee became famous when followers began noticing his gladiator-like build in videos he uploaded online.
The youngster had hoped the clips of him showing off his impressive football skills at 15 would get the attention of scouters.
Instead, he was flooded with comments about becoming a professional bodybuilder and has since built quite a presence on Instagram where he’s amassed some 2 million followers.
The American teen has even posted workouts with some big names in the bodybuilding industry such as Bradley Martyn, Simeon Panda and Larry Wheels.
Then there is Gage Gregurich who was the star of a 2016 documentary Baby Bodybuilders on TLC which profiled the young athletes taking part in competitions.
The ripped youngster was able to lift “more than any other kid who is 12 and under and weighs 66lb in this universe or any other universe,” he boasted.
He went on to say he started powerlifting when he was nine “as my dad was going to the gym and I wanted to go too”.
And then there is Giuliano Stroe from Romania, who became a global sensation after he was entered into the Guinness World Records at the age of five.
In a picture shared to Facebook, Giuliano, now 17, is all grown up holding a picture of himself when he set his first record in 2009 when he was just five years old.
Wearing a weighted ball on his legs, the boy set a new record for the fastest 33-foot hand-walk.
The little bodybuilder performed the stunt in front of a live audience on Italian television.
Astonishingly a year later, he set the world record for the most 90-degree push-ups.
