 Sexy stripper Sherry Mungwira muscled-up in the gym after she quit her exotic dancing job because she didn't want to lose her toned figure.

Little did the former Miss Nude East Tennessee know that pumping iron would actually accentuate her curves to create a stunning 38-28-34 figure and launch her into a new life as a fitness competitor.

The 40-year-old, mother-of-three from Tenessee said: “ My muscles that I had at that time were from dancing, when I quit dancing they went away and I had to figure out how to get them back.”

Like many women she tip-toed her way to the gym – happy to do the cardio but slightly intimidated by the squat rack and the bodybuilder-style free weights.

She said: "Most women don't want to be too muscular and I was one of those women. I was always afraid I would get too big if I used bodybuilding techniques.

“But it wasn't until I ventured on my own and tried training like that, that I realized it gives you better curves. My body responded to it like it should.

“Most women are scared because they don't want to look like a man but until you understand how it works you will not know how to do it the right way.

“When I first hit the gym I just did cardio to thin down but that was all I was, thin. I didn't get shapely until I ventured into weights.”

Now Sherry is hoping her terrific shape will win her a placing at a fitness show.

She is currently 5ft 1ins and 125lbs with a 38 inch chest, 28 inch waist and 34 inch hips. Her biceps measure 11.5 inches and her quads 20.5 inches.

She quit exotic dancing in 2008 and started weight training shortly after but says “I started training with weights but didn't dig in with supplements and so on until November 2012.”

Nonetheless she has already competed in her first show the NPC Northern Kentucky in March 2013 and is planning to hit the stage again in August .

She said: “I learned a lot from that show. My dream is that I would like to place just once just to show I can do it!”

Sherry, who has a 21-year-old daughter and two sons aged 19 and 16, trains up to seven days per week pre-competition.

Her routine is usually:

Day 1) Upper body mixed with some core
Day 2) Lower body mixed with core
Day 3) All core
Then repeat

She said: “When I am training I usually don't do a set rest day, so it can be seven days. But I listen to my body and rest when I am tired.

“But aside from the competitions I really like what bodybuilding has down for me. I have more muscle tone and my butt has lifted from so many squats! My abs are nicer and over all my upper body is much improved - I can really tell a difference in clothes.”
