WHATEVER IT TAKES!
BIG BACK GRIPS USER PROFILE INTERVIEW: JORDAN EDGE
BBG: First, can you tell people how you met the people from Big Back Grips. It’s kind of a funny story.
Jordan Edge: Sure. We had a mutual Facebook friend and I sent a chat message asking about Big Back Grips. And it turned out you would be sponsoring the NPC North Carolina State Championships High Point and I live really close. And one week later, me and my friend Michael ended up working with you guys at the booth at show. It was fun. First time I ever did something like that.
BBG: And you have been a BBG convert ever since. What did you use before BBGs and why did you settle on BBGs? How do they help your workout?
Jordan Edge: I used gloves and straps before i used Big Back Grips. The reason i settled on BBGs is because it gives you an amazing workout. BBGs help in many ways – they help your grip and let you train in a well-controlled manor. Helps you lift heavier and more reps.
Your hands never get sweaty like they would with gloves. And when you get done with them you just tuck them in your shorts.
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.
Jordan Edge: Well, my name is Jordan Kyle Edge. I’m 19 years old. I was born in England but grew up in a small town in Caswell County in NC. I went to Bartlett Yancey High School. Right now I am currently working at a paint store called Danville Paint Supply In Danville VA. I also have the best girlfriend ever – Jordan Elizabeth Dallas – and she supports me all the way when it comes to bodybuilding. Also my mom Lisa and my dad Ondre are a big reason I do what I do and have accomplished what I have accomplished. I looked up to bodybuilding from a pretty young age. But it wasn’t until I turned 17 that I started lifting though. When I first picked up a weight I fell in love fast!
BBG: Where do you work out?
Jordan Edge: I have worked out at many different gyms. Caswell County Fitness Center, Body Dynamics, Perfect Body.
BBG: Did you play or excel at any sports?
Jordan Edge: When I was young I played soccer and I boxed. But they never caught my eye like the sport of Bodybuilding.
Jordan Edge: I love helping other people learn and move closer to their goals.
BBG: What’s your advice to people just starting out?
Jordan Edge: My advice to people starting is this. If you have a dream, go for it. Never let someone tell you that you can’t do something. Give it everything you have. It’s the best sport ever and a lot of people don’t get to live it. ALSO everyone is different and should find a routine that fits there psyche best. And again Whatever it takes.
BBG: Finally, can you give us your workout for just one body part: back or legs, shoulders, chest or arms, even abs. Just pick your favorites.
Jordan Edge: I mentioned I love working back, but I also love working chest.
