Russian teenager, Julia Vins, has the face of a porcelain doll but the body of the Hulk! Standing at 165cm and weighing 65kgs, the 18-year-old’s vital stats are jaw-dropping. Her biceps measures 40.5cm; chest 98 cm; pelvis 102 cm and thighs 67 cm, reports ‘Mirror’.

With an unconventional combination of delicate, angelic beauty and ripping muscles, she is popularly known as 'Muscle Barbie' and already holds three world power-lifting records.

It all began three years ago, when she was lost and wanted to find meaning to her life, she says and so she hit the gym. She enjoyed power lifting and understood her goal in life was to build muscles.


Now she trains with a coach for three to five hours, four times per week. Vins also transformed her diet and eats five to six small meals per day, comprising chicken, eggs, cheese, rice and vegetables - but she allows herself one cheat day per week, the report added.

However, the teenager feels it’s important to look sexy, too, when she’s pumping iron. She ensures she puts on make-up and does her hair. But she admits it is difficult finding good clothes as she does not have a standard size.


Her 29-year-old boyfriend loves to train with her. But it’s not the same with other men in general. “They either respect my work or reprimand me for being a muscular girl," she said and added that guys who are negative about are athleticism are “just jealous”.

Now she claims to be both physically and mentally strong.

In August 2014, Julia entered the World Powerlifting Championships in Moscow and won.
