Julia Vins, the ‘Muscle Barbie’, is back at it again. This time, she is impressing viewers around the world with a massive bench press recently.
Vins is a Russian powerlifter who is known for her strength as much as her beauty. At just 23 years of age, she has already become one of Russia’s well-known athletes. Her unique looks, combined with an equally impressive ability to compete has left her being one of the most sought-after powerlifters in the world.
Most recently, Julia Vins took to the APCON Fitness Expo to remind us just how strong she is. In a video, posted to Instagram, you can see Vins hitting a massive 165kg bench press. Not only was this a new personal record for her, but it was enough to change her place on the world rankings. This bench was able to put her as number one in the world, at the junior’s 67kg weight class.
Check out the video of the incredible performance by Vins:
“Now I’m in the first place in the world rankings in the bench press (juniors 67 weight category)
After two not entirely successful competitions, where my bench was very small, I finally made progress and added 15 kg to my personal record
This time bench press was so easy, I felt i could add at least 10 kg more
Now I take first place in the world ranking.. And I want to say, you will succeed if you don’t give up.
Follow your passion.”
According to Vins, she feels that she could have done even better than this performance. Nevertheless, this was enough to achieve a massive victory. As she eludes to, this is 15kg more than her previous personal record. At only 23 years old, it is hard to imagine a world where this number does not continue to get bigger.
Julia Vins really started to gain popularity and mainstream success around 2018. People were naturally drawn to her combination of good looks, and competitive spirit. Subsequently, she became quickly well-known, amassing almost a million followers on Instagram.
This was an excellent performance out of the “Muscle Barbie.” It will be exciting to see how Julia Vins can add to this, and continue improving her overall powerlifting game.
