The Russian powerlifter can deadlift nearly 400lbs. Thats over 28 stone. Or, if you prefer, two Arnold Schwarzeneggers. Or a Welsh pony.
Anyway, Julias amassed over 28,000 Instagram followers thanks to her angelic looks and superhero physique. She says shes known where she lives as Muscle Barbie.
Despite her massive following, she admits she divides opinion, saying people either respect my work or reprimand me for being a muscly girl.
But to be honest, Ive noticed that the guys who are negative about my athleticism are just jealous, she adds.
A year later, she met a coach who recognised her potential as a weightlifter.
She now trains four times a week, for three to five hours a time, and eats five or six small meals per day made up of chicken, eggs, cheese, rice and vegetables.
