This kid has the metabolism of a bumble bee. He can pick up furniture that other kids his age can't even push. He can run like the wind. He has the agility of a cat. He eats like there is no tomorrow - a full meal every hour. He has 40% more muscle mass than a normal
He has a rare genetic condition called myostatin-related muscle hypertrophy, which increases his muscle mass and reduces his body fat. He is pictured holding five pound weights with his mother, Dana Hoekstra, inside their Roosevelt Park home.
He has almost no body fat and he is only19 months old . Only problem...he's not green or he would be the Incredible Hulk. How about Hercules?
One other problem...insufficient body fat might prevent his brain from developing normally. Is that why jocks are called 'muscle heads' and NOT for their intellectual ability?
Johns Hopkins University researchers have determined the little Mighty Mouse has been 'blessed' with too much myostation, something they found in an unusually muscular breed of Belgian Blue Cattle.
A little boy as strong as an ox...literally. He can already do iron crosses, pull-ups at 8 months. His adoptive father has big dreams for him...medical breakthroughs, how to treat muscular dystrophy and osteoporosis? Nope. A football player.
