At first, Vins started working out with no set plan at age 15. She had no personal trainers motivating her. But after a year, she was offered coaching by a powerlifting trainer, the only one available. Having no other option, she accepted.
It wasn't her first choice, but she grew to love powerlifting. So much so that she began competing only a few months after she started. She's very goal-oriented, striving to constantly better herself, win or lose at competitions.
She consumes around 150 grams of protein every day. Mostly fish, eggs, chicken and beef, which she pairs with broccoli, oatmeal and rice. She only uses supplements to enhance her performance in powerlifting.
Muscle Barbie trains five times a week. She prefers a long, high-volume routine and targeting muscle groups at least twice a week. It's a lot of work, but she says she enjoys spending a lot of time at the gym.
The only thing bigger than Muscle Barbie's gains is her online presence. She has 584,000 followers on Instagram. She's been in the public eye for a while now, but everyone is still blown away each time they see her phenomenal body.
