Andrulla Blanchette is the most popular female bodybuilder according to the 2014 Ranker.com poll and she is also a 1st Dan black belt in judo, having started out in the sport at age 11. Before that she loved to grapple with the boys in the neighborhood out on the streets near her home. She made the British junior squad and even wanted to try out for the Olympic Games. She decided to start lifting weights only to help her out in her judo, but quickly realized that she was extremely strong for her size. She also developed her body at a prodigious rate.
Her most notable bodyparts are her arms (in 1996, at a body weight of 145 lb, they measured 17 inches) and her traps, which she says developed large and early from a former training partner and boyfriend who had her lifting heavy right from the start. At a height of 5’3″, her contest body weight has typically been around 135 lbs.
