Bodybuilder dubbed the ‘Cuban Ironman’ smashes his body with metal MALLET 1,000 times a day to ‘make his body tougher’

A Cuban body builder claims hitting himself with a mallet 1,000 times a day makes him stronger. Lino Tomasén Camacho has become an online sensation after videos of him hitting himself went viral, earning him more than 106,000 Facebook followers who can now watch numerous videos of him showing off his unusual daily routine.

One clip shows Camacho — known as ‘The Cuban Ironman’ — pretending to square up to a boxer in a city square before taking off his boxing gloves and hammering his hand with his mallet.

The video also shows Camacho cracking open a coconut with his elbow and performing push-ups on his wrists while a friend sits on top of him.

In another clip, Camacho is seen thumping his hands with his mallet in time with salsa music being performed by nearby musicians.

Camacho said he has been hammering each of his hands every day with his Thor-like mallet since he was 15 years old, a habit he said he inherited from his father, known as ‘The Magic Man’ in Cuba.

Following his online fame, Camacho started receiving invitations to perform at festivals and concerts across Cuba.

Last week, he announced he would perform at the Rodeo Parque Lenin in the Cuban capital Havana.

Fans commented on his post, showering him with praise and admiration.

‘Always working brother, thousands of blessings,’ one said.

Other comments included:

‘Congratulations champion, you show em.’

‘The hardest ironman.’

‘Effort is the key to success. Always be humble like that my friend, that’s why God blesses you.’

However, one commenter said Camacho ‘has a high level of stupid’ and another warned of potential future medical problems: ‘Bad arthritis awaits you my friend. Leave that, you can do better things without hurting yourself.’
