What is Bakhar Nabieva famous for?
In this modern world of all kinds of bodybuilders, fitness trainers and models, Bakhar Nabieva is definitely one who should be taken into account, and appreciated for the effort she has been making for several years to build the spectacular body she has now. She is not a competing bikini model, but she is active on Instagram – that is a much more pleasant on-going contest.
Nabieva’s short bio
Although her popularity rose starting back in 2015 when she first posted on Instagram, since then curious journalists have managed to find out only certain details from her early childhood and about her family. She was born in Baku, Azerbaijan on 8 April 1994, but her family moved to Ukraine, region Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. What is known for sure about her academic background is that she finished high school. We do not have the same certainty when it comes to college or other professional development activities, besides those related to bodybuilding and weight training.
How did Nabieva’s bodybuilding story begin?
We think it is always a curiosity for the reader to discover how people such as Bakhar get motivated into doing their thing with so much pleasure, but mostly, how did they begin this road full of complexities, struggles, and self-consciousness. Unfortunately, there are a lot of such stories that began not due to a special passion for sports and weighting, but because of low self-esteem and bullying – this is Bakhar’s case, too. Back in the times when she was in high school, she had a slim figure, with very skinny legs, and her fellow students frequently made fun of her, and mocked her for her body.
Nabieva could not stand it anymore, and accepted one classmate’s proposal of going to the gym. At first she exercised what and how she felt it should be done, because she had no trainer and no previous knowledge about fitness or nutrition. She focused more on exercising her feet and glutes, which from her point of view were her major weaknesses – this could be the explanation of why her legs are now so well built.
Rise to prominence
Bakhra transformed what first seemed to be just a last resort solution to an entire lifestyle, when she once got up in the morning, looked in the mirror and noticed some changes to her body; that was the moment she realized sport can definitely change her life. She continued educating herself about everything fitness means from bodybuilding magazines. An important role in organizing her lifestyle had the role models she knew and appreciated – Brazilian bikini models in general ,and Gracyanne Barbosa in particular, are the ones who gave her fortitude and helped her to set higher goals. ‘I am inspired by Brazilian athletes, the number one for me is the Gracyanne Barbosa,’ she has said.

Is she professionally competing?
Unlike the majority of fitness and bikini models, Bakhar simply avoids and refuses to compete in bodybuilding contests. She does not agree with the techniques used by competitors and their trainers to succeed. First of all, these imply drastically cutting down carbohydrates and energy foods. At the same time, athletes must keep up with their training, which is most intense before competitions. ‘The training does not yield when you have no energy. I do not want to expose myself to such torture, perhaps in the future”, mentions Nabieva. She admits competing sometime in the past, but that only confirmed her disagreement of these practices. According to a YouTube video, she was ranked 5th in one competition.
Bakhar’s career online
Bakhar is currently focusing all her energy and attention on her Instagram profile, which is mainly what she does for a living. She posts so many provocative and attractive photos, either from the gym working on those glutes or from some photo shots of her body, which are utterly impressive from any point of view. Therefore, it is not a surprise that she is followed by 2.5 million people, a number that has increased continuously since March 2015, the date of her first Instagram post. She has a lot of projects going on her page, most of them being of commercial interests. In other words, she promotes various brands with a wide range of products. One of her biggest collaborations is with Dragon Pharma Gorilla Wear USA – these types of endorsement deals have major advantages for both parties – one gains more support, exposure and positive feedback, while the other simply makes a living.
Nabieva’s body measurements
Just as a matter of curiosity we will state her body measurements but it is already needless to say that her body does not have to fit into the general assumption and idea of a good looking body. There are other “perfect measures” for girls with such as dedication, perseverance and strength as Bakhar. So, at a height of 5ft 2ins (157.5cms), she weighs around 120lbs (55kgs). Both her eyes and her hair are dark brown.
