IF I SEE PEOPLE WEARING GLOVES OR USING STRAPS, I MAKE THEM TRY MY BBG’S.
BIG BACK GRIPS USER PROFILE INTERVIEW: ERIC BONETA
Eric Boneta, Big Back Grips Student Rep/Dealer, Puerto Rico
BBG: Ok, so, tell us a little about yourself: your name, background, where you grew up, where you went to school and for what. What do you do professionally? A mini-bio, if you will.
Eric.B: About me: My name is Eric Boneta and I was born in Brooklyn, New York. I was raised in Puerto Rico and right after finishing high school I joined the military. I did 12 years of service in the Army and the Air Force combined as a grunt.
After my contract with the Air Force ended I decided to take it easy and pursue my dream of becoming
A bodybuilder while going to college. Why Puerto Rico? Well, because paying 2,500 is better than paying up to 30,000 per semester. My major is in radiology and I’ve always liked the medical field. So basically I go to college and I train.
BBG: So you’re the top Big Back Grips student rep right now. Can you tell people how that came about and what it’s been like?
Eric. B: Well, it all started at a local gym down here in Puerto Rico where I work out with my BBG’s and people were staring at them, I let them try them, talked a little about them, how to use them and how better than gloves and straps they are. At that time I had no clue they were not available in P.R. People starting to ask me; where to buy them and how I got them. So I decided to try with a 7 pack, got my BBG’s in the mail and minutes later they were sold. At this point I knew this was the way to get the money I needed for my BB contest. So I became a student rep and here I am.
BBG: When people ask you about the grips, what do you tell them?
Eric.B: Actually I don’t let people ask me. If I see people wearing gloves or using straps, I make them try my BBG’s so they can compare and see the big difference.
BBG: What did you use before BBGs and why did you settle on BBGs? How do they help your workout?
Eric.B: Before BBG’s I used gloves, then after going thru 5 or more pairs breaking in the middle of workouts I switched to straps. At first they worked fine but I started to get using lifting straps for workouts led to wrist pains due to a prior injury and the pulling and constriction of my wrist with the straps when lifting especially on dumbbell rows. Then one day in New York I met the guys from BBG at a demo and I bought a pair. Since then my wrist got stronger, pain free and I concentrate better on lifting heavy with a strict form. With BBG’s I get better workouts and greater gains.
