Meet the "World's Strongest Mom"

Aleesha Young strong mother

Aol.com: Meet Aleesha Young, who has been a professional bodybuilder for half her life. But despite all the hard work that goes into preparing for competitions, her biggest accomplishment is being a wife and a mother. With biceps over 18 inches and quads over 28 inches, Young may be considered the World's Strongest Mom.

"I think people in the fitness world are surprised that I'm a mom because it's pretty rare at my level of female bodybuilding," Young explained to AOL Lifestyle.

"I knew that being a mom was a number one priority for me -- it had to happen for me," she continued. "I couldn't give the sport everything I needed to until I had my little girl." After Olivia was born, it took Young 10 months to get back into competitive shape.

And now, Olivia even helps out with her mom's fitness routine by adding weight to her mom's pushups and lunges. See more of Young's unconventional story in the video!

Female bodybuilder Janice Lorraine is Australia's toughest grandma

Janice Lorraine
TheMorningShow: Janice Lorraine is a 76-year-old grandmother, and she's claimed 12 world titles in the past two decades. The former psychologist trains at the gym for three hours a day, three days a week. On the other days, she recovers with an 8km walk. She's been competing in bodybuilding for the last 20 years. "When I started, there was nobody my age," Lorraine said. "I was 56 then, and gradually it's grown. "I get a lot of Facebook messages from people all over the world, mainly 50-plus. They're all so excited."

Dealing with trolls
While most of the feedback Lorraine receives is positive, she's had to deal with critics and trolls - mainly from men. "I get called old duck, old bag, old chook," Lorraine said. "In 2013, I was on my way to training for the championships in Greece. "A neighbour of mine, two years younger than me, he said, are you still doing that bodybuilding? "I said yes, and he said, it's about time you gave that up - you're well past your used by date. "I didn't want to waste my time putting those thoughts in my mind and dwelling on them. "I take (the criticism) and use it in a positive sense, in order tell others that you should be able to live your life to the full, and follow your dreams no matter how old you are."

Vegan Bodybuilder Set To Become Parliament Heavyweight

Plant Based News: Gold-medal winning vegan bodybuilder and psychologist Emma Hurst has revealed plans to retire her bikini suit as she sets her sights on winning a seat in Australia's NSW Parliament representing the Animal Justice Party.

The 37-year-old athlete, who has followed a plant-based diet for 19 years, wants to change Australia's political climate and fix the country's history of animal cruelty.

Bodybuilder turned MP hopeful
After being told she couldn't compete on a bodybuilding stage because being vegan would be too disadvantageous, Hurst set out to prove her opponents wrong- and did so by taking out gold in three back-to-back competitions this year.

"I wanted to make a point that we can choose to live compassionately and still be competitive on stage," Hurst told Plant Based News.

"But I also proved to myself that I can achieve anything I put my mind to. Now I am focused on that seat in Parliament and I'm going to give it my all - for the animals."

Tragic Murder of Emeri Connery

Emeri Connery
AthensNews: Fitness Model Emeri Connery died while in a pickup truck with her police officer cousin near the southwest Virginia town where he worked earlier this month, and authorities are alleging that she was shot and killed by that man in an apparent murder-suicide.

Emeri Connery
Emeri A. Connery, 26, was a 2011 graduate of Eastern High School in Reedsville, Meigs County, who built up a significant following on social media as a fitness model, and most recently lived in Columbus. Connery grew up in Coolville and lived there through high school, her triplet brother Kyle Connery said in a brief interview Friday.

“Emeri was my triplet sister,” he wrote in a Facebook post memorializing Emeri and her cousin. “She was the most amazing, beautiful, badass, and inspiring woman I’ll ever know. Klint and I love you and can’t wait to see you again. You’ll forever be a part of us.”

Connery’s cousin, Bailey S. Smith, 21, of Duffield, Virginia, allegedly shot and killed himself while in the pickup truck with Connery. Smith served as a police officer for Big Stone Gap, Virginia. That community is located near the Tennessee border roughly three miles from where law enforcement authorities found the car (on U.S. Rt. 23 in Lee County, Virginia).

The Virginia State Police are investigating the Sunday, March 10, incident leading to Connery’s death as a “murder-suicide,” according to a release issued by that agency last week, after police found a 2015 GMC pickup truck that had run off the left side of the highway into the median.

“Investigators have confirmed that the shootings occurred within the vehicle and, at this stage, are investigating the incident as a murder-suicide,” the release reads. “A firearm was recovered from inside the vehicle. There is no evidence to indicate another vehicle or individual was involved in the shootings.” Read more
