Muscle Barbie – Julia Vins

Muscle Barbie – Julia Vins

She may have the face of a porcelain doll but below the neck this 18-year-old is more like The Incredible Hulk and can deadlift 400lb – the average weight of a male lion.

Powerlifter Julia Vins’ unusual blend of wide-eyed beauty and muscular physique has captured the attention of fans in her native Russia – attracting more than 23,000 Instagram followers.

The innocent-faced teenager – who likes to take topless pictures of herself – already holds three world powerlifting records but says there’s no limit to how muscly she would like to become.

Ms Vins, who was born in the city of Engels, says: ‘People know me as “muscle Barbie” – I like this comparison. It’s nice.

‘I have these big, beautiful eyes and wear make-up. But at the same time, I’m strong.

‘I can deadlift 180kg in training. I want to become as big as possible.’

Ms Vins claims her astonishing appearance divides the opposite sex.

‘Everyone has an opinion on what I look like – they either respect my work or reprimand me for being a muscly girl,’ she said.

‘But to be honest, I’ve noticed that the guys who are negative about my athleticism – are just jealous.’

Since childhood, Ms Vins’ angelic face meant she’s always been compared to a pretty doll. But the naturally slender girl never felt like she had any purpose in life.

‘Because of my facial features, people have always said I look like a doll,’ she said.

‘And I was a good, academic girl for so many years. I studied music, was well-read, participated in various school competitions and was skilled at art.

‘But I never felt like I had any particular objective in life. My body was not in harmony with my soul – it wasn’t the right one for me.’

In an attempt to find some meaning in her life, Julia began going to the gym at age 15.

JULIA’S MEASUREMENTS
Height: 5ft 3in
Weight: 10st 21lb
Biceps: 15in
Chest: 39in
Waist: 26in
Pelvis: 40in
Thigh: 26in

She explains: ‘I had no interest in sport but I was lost. I thought I might see if I could build some strength and confidence by weight training at the gym.

‘I started copying exercises that the male gym-goers did. It did not make me strong but then I started powerlifting.

‘I loved it! I knew then that my goal was – to build muscle.’

A year later, Ms Vins met a coach who saw potential in her as a weightlifter. She started training at the gym with him for three to five hours, four times per week.

Ms Vins also transformed her diet. She now eats five to six small meals per day, which consist of chicken, eggs, cheese, rice and vegetables. But she allows herself one cheat day per week.

Finally in August 2014, Ms Vins entered the World Powerlifting Championships in Moscow and won the competition. She achieved three world records in the sum 440kg – these were 180kg (396lb) in the squat, 105kg (230lb) in bench press and 165kg (364lb) in the deadlift.

    She is a truly amazing and inspiring woman who is muscular and feminine. There are not enough words to describe how beautiful and appealing she is to the eyes. Julia is on point with what is doing.

    In mans world perspective this is very small, 15 inch arms, 160cm and 60 kg bodyweight? …… But impressive for a girl, but ofcourse she is using steroids/testosterone boosting to get the RESULTS, at 18 years old female she would never attain this naturally.

    Show me a VIDEO of the 180kg Deadlift or it did not happen,
    I would like to see it. :)

    Her range of motion is ofcourse half of that of a tall man, which makes deadlifts etc easier. Her strenght in real life would be meagre, but better than 90% of other girls ofcourse, but this is not a natural physique neither.
