To fans asking her about whether she will continue with her bodybuilding career, she responded: “My job is a doctor, a part-time model, not a fitness coach.”
Herong has been dubbed “Chun-Li” by fans, likening her to the iconic Street Fighter character.
Yuan has quickly gathered a huge fanbase, boasting over 60,000 Instagram followers – despite the site being banned in her country.
And these fans regularly gush over posts, with the Chinese beauty being snowed under by compliments.
One wrote: “A stunning beauty, a stunning body… Completely stunning”.
While another posted: “Yuan, you are very beautiful. But what impresses me more, is not your beautiful body, but that you’re a doctor helping people which indicates a beautiful heart and intelligent mind.”
Another just had to admire: “Those legs!!!! Everything is GOALS”.
“Lol one your leg has more muscles than my whole body,” another added.
One person wondered whether it was too good to be true: “Is she natural?”
While another wondered just how Herong got her body into such shape: “I’m so curious of your diet”.
She has built her fanbase over time, having posted on Instagram over 800 times – and is not afraid to show off the body that she is proud of – having posed fully nude on the platform.
