The inspirational mother who lost her arms as a two-year-old but is now a BODYBUILDER (and still has to clean up after her two teenage sons!)

  • Barbie Thomas, 37, lost both her arms aged two from an electric shock
  • She has been competing as a bodybuilder, in Phoenix, Arizona, since 2000
  • The stay-at-home mother trains every day around caring for her two sons
  • She is now setting her sights on acting roles in Hollywood films
  • A mother who lost both her arms from an electric shock as a toddler has found a love of bodybuilding.

    Barbie Thomas, 37, has been competing against able bodied women in bodybuilding for over a decade after a youth crammed full of dance, soccer and swimming competitions.

    The mother of two says there is little she cannot do. She shrugs off the amount of effort it takes to compete as a body builder and just like any other family, she says raising her two teenage sons is hard work.
