It is said that if you wanna be extremely good at something, you have to start training at an early age. Although kids start winning competitions at a young age, you'll rarely find them beating on their craft on a daily basis to become even better. Most of the time they do what normal kids do such as watching TV and playing with toys, but there are some kids who were born different. Below is a list of 5 strongest kids In the world.

5. Liam Hoekstra

Do you believe in superhumans? Well, if you had the idea that they only exist in comic books or movies then you might have to reconsider. Meet one the world's strongest toddlers, Liam Hoekstra.

He was given up for adoption by his biological mother, he was adopted by a lovely couple who did not know that he'd bring them fortune. Liam first showcased his strength at 5 months old when he did an iron cross.

His parents were amazed by this and started sending him for gymnastics. Normally a baby starts walking at 15 months or slightly less than that, but Liam started walking up and down the stairs at 6 months all by himself.

While other kids his age were busy with toys and eating dirt, Liam was busy practicing on how to nail the chin bar challenge. At three years old, he could do as many sit ups as a six year old. Using a hand held device to see how much pressure be could hold, he was able to shift 5.9 kgs without running out of breath.

Kids his age at that time could only shift 1kg so Liam was as strong as a seven year old at that time. His parents didn't think he was normal so they decided to take him to the doctor and he was diagnosed with muscle hypertrophy which means that his muscles and bones grow rapidly without having any side effects.

This disorder means that Liam can simply sit on the couch, eat as much as he wants and still not get fat. Pretty impressive huh?

Although what Arat is doing is really impressive, many are concerned about his health. However if he continues the way he does on the football field, he'll become quite sensational player.
