Biographical data

Florin TeodorescuWorse than thin: 1,400 kg at birth
    I was born in Horia village, Neamt county, on March 30, 1961. We were five brothers. While my twin sister weighed 2,600 kg when she was born, I weighed only 1,400 kg. As a child, I was thin and rachitic and I remember how my sisters used to play with my ribs as if they were a dulcimer. I started to do physical exercises so that I could protect myself from my sisters and other children who would always beat me. I had heard that regular and chair push-ups made your body stronger. I started lifting a kitchen stool (try doing it with one hand only and you will see how hard – and heavy – it can be!) and training my biceps with a 15-kilo cooking pot. Sometimes I had to empty it because it was so heavy I simply couldn’t lift it… Then I tried to lift a railway piece and a ball from the shoulder. I did traction exercises using a tree. I did all these exercises but I had no idea what muscles they engaged. I had to wait for two or three months to see which of them were getting stronger. The first ones I saw really growing were my forearm muscles, after I had trained my flexor in 1974.
