Amir The Hulk has a rare condition that has caused him to show some serious muscle.
We all remember when Richard Sandrak took the world by storm as ‘Mini Hercules.‘ showing off his incredible physique at a young age. Now, another child sensation has been gaining comparisons to Sandrak. He is known as Amir the Hulk and he went viral in 2019 after a YouTube video was shared by his uncle.
In the video, Amir The Hulk is seen parading around the room showing off his chiseled physique. Amir is flexing and hitting some poses while his abs and shoulders look ripped. At such a young age, this type of muscle definition is rare. Amir’s uncle made it clear that the child was not on any type of steroid. Instead, he suffers from Berardinelli Seip and a lack of Myostatin.
Berardinelli Seip is a rare genetic disorder. This is when a child nearly loses all body fat at birth, which results in an unusual muscle tone. Myostatin is. protein that stops humans from developing too much muscle mass. If a person lacks some, it leads to the over-development of muscles. It has been speculated that Amir The Hulk has as low as one percent body fat, which is dangerously low.
The look of Amir’s physique has drawn comparisons to Sandrak. Mini Hercules began working out and participating in martial arts at a young age. By age six, Sandrak was able to bench press 180 pounds and upped that number to 210 pounds by eight years old. Mini Hercules was pushed hard by his father but claims that he was never forced into anything.
This is when he began traveling to participate in competitions and for promotional reasons. It is no surprise that a child who was as ripped as Sandrak gained attention across the country. As he got older, Sandrak steered away from bodybuilding but is still well-known in the fitness world.
Amir the Hulk is not old enough to begin lifting weights and it is unknown if he will want to go down this avenue. Because of his disease, Amir will have to get as healthy as possible before taking on major physical activities. One thing that is undeniable is that he has shown off some serious size at a young age.
