Does the name Richard Sandrak ring a bell? No. What about the moniker “Little Hercules”. Yes, our favourite child bodybuilder rose to global fame at just eight years old, thanks to his exceptional physique. The world could not believe that someone so young could be so toned, but Richard’s fitness regime was truly startling (in fact, he could benchpress 180 pounds at the age of six).
With two parents whose lives revolved around fitness and exercise, it was no surprise that young Richard followed suit. His dad was a martial arts champ, while his mother was an aerobics instructor – and they even hired a fitness trainer to ensure their son bulked up.
