Since 1959, Barbie has played a key role in childhoods. Many people have tons of memories of playing with their favorite dolls as children. Lately, the doll has been playing a controversial role across social media for her "perfect appearance." Because of this Mattel has taken some steps to diversify her by changing her body type and skin color. However, as it turns out, Russia has their very own "Muscle Barbie" in the form of a real-life person.
Meet 22-year-old Julia Vins. She is a bodybuilder who caught the world's attention back in 2014. Her amazing appearance is the direct result of her intensive fitness regime that she started back when she was just 15.
Why you ask? Vins used to lack confidence. Working out helped her fix that. Working out gave her total control over her body which is truly jaw-dropping.
She said that when she was 15, she realized that she needed to change something in her life. She was very skinny and unsatisfied with it. She decided she needed to be stronger both physically and mentally.
While most teenage girls would opt for lighter exercises, Vins decided to start powerlifting. This is a type of workout that is usually associated with me, but Muscle Barbie has broken the mold.
She says she chose her own path and her family was supportive even though many people would tell her to stop and to go find a real job instead of pursuing a life as Muscle Barbie.
Since she has a natural doll-like face, she has recently shocked her followers with pictures of what she looked like before she became what she is today.
She says she likes the name Muscle Barbie. She has big gorgeous eyes and loves to wear makeup, but at the same time, she is strong. She boasts that she can deadlift 419 pounds and aspires to become as big as her body can possibly get.
Because of her hard work and dedication, she is now one of Russia's leading powerlifters. In February 2017, she proved she can deadlift more than most adult men, 419 pounds.
Because of her unique look, she has gained over 600K Instagram followers. She uses the platform to update her followers on her work and her life.
Vins says she works out five times a week. She knows that her appearance is not typical of what most believe to be feminine, but she has been met with a ton of praise online.
One user even wrote, “The only thing I can tell you is that you’re the most beautiful girl that I have ever seen in my whole life and keep doing lifting and keep that amazing body that you have.”
Vins not only follows an intense fitness regime but she also couples it with a super strict diet that allows her to gain as much muscle as physically possible.
This is Vins back in 2011 before she began her transformation.
She says everyone seems to have an opinion on how she looks. They either respect her work for show distaste for her being such a muscular girl. She says the guys tend to be the most negative about her athleticism.
We give her Kudos for being so determined and successful in life.
