When most teenagers join their local gym, it’s usually to check out their classmates’ muscles and take a few perfectly posed gym selfies. When a 15-year-old Julia Vins joined her local gym, however, little did she know that it was the start of an incredible career as a powerlifter.
Russian-born Julia is now 20 years old and has been winning powerlifting championships all over the world thanks to a gruelling ritual of training, protein shakes and lean chicken. When you first look at Julia, you would never assume from her porcelain skin and doll-like eyes that she has the ability to lift the equivalent of two Arnold Schwarzeneggers.
She explains: “I have these big, beautiful eyes and wear make-up. But at the same time, I’m strong. People either respect my work or reprimand me for being a muscly girl. But to be honest, I’ve noticed that the guys who are negative about my athleticism – are just jealous.” Head over to the next page to see the incredible body of the girl who calls herself the “muscle Barbie”.
