BIG BACK GRIPS USER PROFILE INTERVIEW: MATTHEW EUBANKS
Matthew “Hulk Smash” Eubanks is a personal trainer at ImpactfitKC in Kansas City, Missouri. He is also the owner of www.MuscleThreadz.com gym-inspired clothing and is a sponsored athlete at Big Back Grips dealer Supplement Supersource in Kansas City. He surprised us recently with an awesome review of Big Back Grips on his website www.bodybybb2k.com. So naturally we asked him if he’d do a profile for us.
BBG: Matthew, first we have to ask: You obviously have been training and training hard for a good long time. We know you came across Big Back Grips on Facebook. But we’re wondering what was going on with your workouts that you needed to look into BBGs. What had you been using prior? Gloves? Straps? Chalk? Bare hands? Why did you need to look into something new?
Matthew: I have always used straps and over the years I had become dependent on them. My grip was very weak and my forearms were so small and weak looking. I could never train without the straps and I really hated that. I tried chalk but the gyms I train at frown on chalk. Gloves are a joke in my book so I had to seek out something that actually worked! And I did with the BBGs!
BBG: How have your workouts changed with BBGs?
Matthew: My workouts are much better now. I am in control of the weight, not the straps. It’s all medoing the work! The grips provide me with everything I need – a perfect grip, a little cushion and a killer workout.
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.
