A sturdy Russian physique indeed.
You would never be able to guess by looking at her face, but this female powerlifter has some serious strength.
Her name is Julia Vins, and she’s dedicated her life completely to lifting.
In her own words:
Initially, I set a goal to become stronger, because I have absolutely no confidence in myself. At first, I just went to the gym, for a year worked without a program, and in September 2012 I had the opportunity to engage in powerlifting, and this year was fruitful enough, in terms of sporting achievement. I started going to the gym at my new school. There was only coach in powerlifting and kettlebell lifting. I did not like kettlebell lifting, because I wanted to harmoniously developed body. And I simply had no choice. I do what I want to see for myself, and this is my life. Also impossible to please everybody. There will always be people who respect my choice, or simply to adequately explain why they do not like, and unfortunate, that nothing in this life is achieved easily. I am following my dream.
It took her countless hours in the gym to achieve her current physique.
Her hard work has certainly paid off. The impressive results speak for themselves.
