In our life, we met someone who does some form of body building. These power junkies love to lift and are committed to building as much strength as humanly possible. Usually, though, body builders are well into adulthood. Some considered Varya Akulova the strongest girl in the world when she wowed the world with her superhuman strength as a child. She’s now 25 years old and has gotten out of professional weight lifting. Here is her story! ‘Girl Hercules’ Could Lift Her Entire Family At 12, And This Is What She Looks Like Now.
Here’s a photo of Varya Akulova with her family when she was a child.
Her parents recognized her superhuman talents quickly – and by the age of seven, Varya had already been entered into powerlifting competitions.
At this point, she was able to easily lift her father on her shoulders.
Here are the two getting into that circus spirit together.
How cool would it be to lift dumbbells with your daughter, right?
They took part in several competitions together and even appeared on television talent shows over the years.
Varya also became quite proficient in acrobatics, as you can see from this photo taken from her Facebook page.
During this entire time period, she entered and dominated weightlifting competitions.
Here’s a shot of her holding some of these titles.
The awards just kept coming in, too.
Varya spent much of her childhood hanging out with the big guys, and you can tell from this picture that she was quite comfortable with it.
She continued making appearances in shows with her father for years…
Through the years, Varya stuck with body building and strength training.
You have to see what she looks like now!
Here she is now!
As a child, some were concerned that maybe lifting wasn’t good for her health, but there have been no apparent health issues so far.
