Meet the iron women of India
If you think building muscular body is the arena of Men, then you should give up this misconception. Because, 36-year-old Yashmeen Manak, can prove you totally wrong. Yashmeen, who was recently crowned Miss India 2016 at a competition organised by Indian Body Building and Fitness Federation (IBBFF), is anything but your average woman you thought about.
A fitness freak, Manak has been lifting weights for the last 17 years and developed an interest in bodybuilding three years ago. All the hard work she has put in towards that has won her two gold medals, one in the Women Physique category and another in Women Fitness, in Bulandshahr, UP, at IBBFF, the official federation representing International Federation of Body Building (IFBB)

Delhi-born Manak was an active participant in sports during childhood. “Being a girl, it was a big challenge to pursue bodybuilding as a career. The champ has also won Gladrags Mrs India 2005 and has broken several records, earlier set by men, in weightlifting 160kg. Currently, Manak runs a gym in Gurgaon and coaches more than 300 boys and girls every month. The bodybuilder is now gearing up for the upcoming Asian Bodybuilding and Physique Championship 2016 in Bhutan, that will take place in September.
