MY BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS SO FAR IS MOVING FROM A SCRAWNY VERSION OF ME TO A HEALTHY, FIT, STRONG VERSION OF ME. I COULDN’T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT GOD AND THE PEOPLE WHO ENCOURAGED ME AND TOLD ME TO KEEP ON GOING.
BIG BACK GRIPS USER PROFILE INTERVIEW: VITOR FERNANDO MARTINS FAIANTE
We met Vitor last spring when he ordered some Big Back Grips shipped to him in London. He got them, fell in love, ordered more, did a video review for his YouTube channel (see below) and we introduced ourselves on Facebook. Strong and well-rounded, Vitor is a bodybuilder and website builder who sets his goals and goes for them, ignoring those who doubt him and proving them wrong as he moves ahead. He is also a man of deep religious faith and conviction and he credits that faith with helping him succeed. We’ve really watched Vitor make great progress in the year we have known him. And we asked him to share a little big of his story.

VITOR: Thank you! It has not always been the case that my back was developed like this. As I mentioned, it is one of those body parts that have taken me a long time to develop and now is one of those I like to train the most. I have used a lot of different exercises, but you will find me using a lot of pull-ups (normally use them at the beginning as a pre exhaustion technique); deadlifts; barbell bent-over rows; T-bar rows; and seated low cable rows. And now I like to use the Hammer Strength rows as well. For isolation I like one-arm dumbbell rows.
Let me give you the exact back workout. For example, here’s Week One of the current program. (Although after 6 weeks, the exercise sequence will change and some exercises will be different, but this gives you and idea of the “heavy week” back workout):
- 4 Sets of Pull Ups – 10 Reps (I may or may not use this as you will see from the next exercise)
- 3 Sets Wide Grip Pulldowns – 8-10 Reps (With 4 warm up sets)
- 3 Sets T-Bar Rows – 8-10 Reps
- 2-3 Sets Seated Pulley Rows – 8-10 Reps (or Seated Low Cable Rows, whatever name you may want to call it)
- 2-3 Sets Partial Deadlifts – 8-10 Reps (Or full Deadlifts if you prefer)
Thank You so much for your time and for the Interview
