Unlike many dwarfs, Romeo is well proportioned, with a head circumference of 15in and a chest measurement of 20in.

Romeo said: "I've been training as a bodybuilder for the last two years and by now I think I must be the strongest dwarf in the world.

"I have always been fit but since I started working out, I have become famous for my strength.

"My size has never stopped me. I train with dumbbells and do aerobics and dance. People are always pleased to see me. I have been invited on TV shows and dance on stage."

His trainer Ranjeet Pal spents hours helping his 19-year-old protege build his small muscles to perfection.

"Because of his small size, I don't assign him hard exercises. But Romeo trains more or less the same as anyone else and he's much more determined.

"When he first started, I insisted he did a month of basic exercises like aerobics, push-ups and basic gymnastics to prepare his body. Scroll down for more...

"After that, I made lightweight dumbbells and taught him basic weight-lifting exercises to shape his biceps and triceps. His size and his weight were taken care of so that he never hurt himself."

Determined Romeo is hoping to have an entertainment career after performing in many local TV shows.

He said: "I earn good money through my dance and bodybuilding shows but being rich doesn't interest me.

"My dream is to travel a lot - I want to perform in London with my idol, Jazzy-B." Scroll down for more...

This better win Picture of the Year in at least one photo competition.

 

I almost wish there weren't any more pictures or any kind of backstory to this, cause it's too out of control amazing on its own.

I saw a documentary about this kid.

Apparently his dad was feeding him roids and not telling him.

Also, his kicks are mad hype

 

His kicks mang!? His kicks...check out those shorts. The happy little animals on the see-saw. That's the true icing on the cake. He definitely works out in clothes intended for toddlers. The kids are hype yes, but the shorts really do it for me /nh.
