Julia Vins, a 19-year-old Russian teen, has been turning heads all over the world with her amazing strength. Julia, a powerlifter, holds three world powerlifting records, one including deadlifting 400 pounds, about 395 more pounds than I can lift.
At first glance, Julia looks like an innocent teenaged girl, but from the neck down she looks like someone you wouldn’t want to piss off at all. Sporting 72,000 followers on Instagram, “Muscle Barbie,” as she has come to be known, started lifting weights at the age of 15 and hasn’t stopped since. Julia says it is obvious people have different opinions when it comes to her appearance.
“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. But to be honest, I’ve noticed that the guys who are negative about my athleticism – are just jealous.”
Originally, Julia started going to the gym to find some meaning in her life.
“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,” the wide-eyed teenager states.
