Check this pint-sized bodybuilder...

World's Smallest Bodybuilder, Aditya 'Romeo' Dev of India, Causing Huge Stir
Tuesday, February 12, 2008

A tiny Indian bodybuilder who is less than 3 feet tall and deemed the world's smallest is causing a huge stir in his hometown and gaining international recognition, according to the British press.

Aditya "Romeo" Dev of Phagwara, India, is a little person who is only 2 feet, 9 inches tall and weighs not even 20 pounds but can lift three-pound dumbbells, the Daily Mail reported.

Throngs of people crowd into the local gymnasium on a daily basis to watch him work out, according to the Mail.

"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," Dev, 19, told the Mail. "My size has never stopped me."

In 2006, after months of intense exercise, the Guinness Book of World Records named Dev the smallest bodybuilder on the planet, the Telegraph reported.

In addition to his bodybuilding, Dev is also training to be a dancer, according to the Telegraph.

Unlike most little people, Dev's body is well proportioned, according to the papers.

The pint-sized weight lifter is famous around India and a great source of pride to his parents.

"He has never been bothered at being so small. He has no inferiority complex. He is the jewel of our family," his father told the Telegraph.

I wonder how many 8-year olds he could fight at the same time?

I'm trying to think of something to write, but I just can't stop laughing enough to make my brain work. That pic of the big guy holding him in his hand is cracking me up!

To really get a fully understanding of this guy's size, we need to see him standing next to the penis chair.

I don't find lifting 3 pound dumb bells much of an accomplishment for a body builder. I can curl more than half my body weight, and I'm way out of shape right now. By my calculus the little bastard should be able to lift at least 10 pounds before I'm even a little impressed.

The dude looks fake and apparently only has 1 pair of shoes that he wears regardless of his outfit.

That other cat though is the most muscular Indian I've ever seen. But then again I haven't been looking.

They say this like we should be impressed, but at 20 lbs the 3 lb dumbbell is only 15% of his weight. That's similar to a 100 lb woman using a 15 lb dumbbell or a 200 lb man using one that's 30 lbs, neither of which would be unusual or impressive.

Still hard to believe he's 2'9" and only weights 20lbs. He does look a little skinny. It's possible that despite being better proportioned than most midgets, he still has limited/improperly developed musculature.

I am sure he could kick my ass and all but he probably would look a lot more badass if he wasn't wearing a 6-year-olds PJ's
