Siblings often compete with each other for fun, but these triplets are doing it on the world stage.
Adriana, Alessandra and Andreia Dantas, from Sao Paulo, Brazil are said to be the world’s only bodybuilding triplets.
The 27-year-olds have been training and competing as an identical trio for years.
The three sisters have matching diets, exercise routines – and even the same plastic surgeon – to ensure they all have the same chance at winning.
After Andreia took a five-year hiatus, she joined her sisters and together they began competing again.
They’re so alike that in a previous bodybuilding competition the judges couldn’t even tell them apart.
Their diet is especially tough because they have to weigh each meal and are limited to eating carbohydrates only once a day.
But as they’re all in it together, they don’t mind so much.
Alessandra said: ‘We have a stronger bond than normal siblings – we are always doing things together because it’s fun.
‘We always cut our hair the same – when Adriana got silicone prosthesis surgery, me and Andreia also got the same procedure with the same doctor.’
In order to maintain their physiques, they all follow the same diet and exercise regime, which is made up of eight small meals per day, each one a different food group.
Adriana added: ‘We follow the same diet and the same exercises.
‘You need a strong mind to be able to stick to the diet on schedule, the training, the supplements – all this affects you psychologically.’
Alessandra’s 13-year-old son Enrico isn’t too keen on his mum having a six-pack but the mum isn’t too fussed.

The Dantas triplets cultivated their passion for bodybuilding as a trio as they’ve always enjoyed doing things together.
Andreia explained: ‘Perhaps if I wasn’t a triplet, I would find a normal job, but with them, there is more hope, it’s more cheerful, more motivating.
‘We exercise every day, five times a week – the importance is to grow old well, to have a good physique.’
But, they say, there is no competitiveness between them.
‘If she wins or she wins, I feel myself a winner as well,’ said Andreia.
‘Whether we win or lose, what matters I always tell them, what counts is the glamour,’ Alessandra added.
In the latest competition, Adriana placed second and Andreia won first place.
‘Incredible, I think he judged wrong – I think I was supposed to rank first,’ Alessandra and Adriana jokingly complained.
Satisfied with the result, the triplets are now looking to their next venture, which will see them start a lingerie business together.
‘We have beautiful bodies, so we’ll be the faces of our own brand – we’ll save up on models!’
