This 18 year old Russian girl powerlifter, has a doll-like face and physique of a bodybuilder
We’ve seen the Ukrainian “human Barbies” before — one of whom was a little spacey and claimed to subsist only on air — as well as the “human Ken dolls” who underwent extensive plastic surgery to emulate the toned, plastic-like bodies of male dolls. But there’s a new human Barbie out there, and this one turns to the gym and weight room to mold herself into her ideal appearance.
Julia Vins, who defines herself as an athlete on her Facebook, is 18 years old and a bodybuilder — with the face of a Barbie doll. Pretty and blonde with luscious lips, you might be surprised to find that Vins threw aside the typical skinny girl image for a bulky frame, with muscles bigger than most guys.
“People know me as ‘muscle Barbie’ — I like this comparison,” she said. “I have these big, beautiful eyes and wear make-up. But at the same time, I’m strong. I can dead lift 180kg (397 pounds) in training. I want to become as big as possible.”
Julia began lifting at age 15 after living most of her life as a slender girl. She then started training with a coach for three to five hours per day, four days a week. Julia eats five to six small meals throughout the day, usually involving eggs, chicken, cheese, rice, and vegetables. In August 2014, Julia participated in the World Powerlifting Championships in Moscow and won, achieving three world records in the squat, bench press, and deadlift. Her achievements in weight-lifting have led her to become confident in her identity.
“What is my inspiration? I just love it,” Vins said in a video. She does it “not to get ahead of someone, because I do it for myself. I like to do it, so I do not have to force myself or get motivation from outside. For me, a workout is not just a hobby, it’s part of my life.”
