The 31-year-old law graduate has been training since she was a teenager – and now owns some of the most muscular legs in figure.
Indeed her huge 26.5 inch quads would not be out of place on a female bodybuilding stage and to watch her train them (check out the hamstring curls below) is noting short of inspirational.
5ft 2ins Denise Rodriuez, of Londrina, Paraná, in Brazil says: “I started weight training early at age 17 and fell in love with the sport.
“I wanted to have a strong and defined body. Over time, I was enjoying it more & more. In 2011, I participated in my first competition and it was a great experience.
“I was a skinny girl, but I always had a beautiful body.”
Something tells us few would argue with Denise over that claim!
