Training

Raissa is one of the hardest working fitness models in the gym. She is often coached by renowned bodybuilding coach, Carol Vaz, who also trains Viviane Winkler.

She can often be seen perfoming high rep sets between 12-15 or even until failure, completing 3-4 sets of each exercise; Raissa believes that this high volume training has played a key role in helping her sculpt her lean, curvy figure.

The Brazilian enjoys focusing on her lower body, as her main goal is to continue developing her glutes and legs. However, Raissa is equally known for her shredded abs, and will often include exercises focusing on her abs during lower body workouts.

Lower Body Workout Routine

Here’s what Raissa’s gym session looks like:

  • Hamstring Kickbacks – 4 x 15 reps
  • Seated Leg Curl – 4 x 15 reps
  • Leg Press – 4 x 15 reps
  • Back Squats – 4 x 15 reps
  • Hack Squats – 4 x failure
  • Hanging Leg Raises – 3 x failure

Nutrition

Raissa is a big believer in eating foods that you enjoy, while still working towards your macros; she doesn’t see the need to only consume plain chicken breast and sweet potato, when she can achieve her calorie targets by eating tastier meals.

However, one thing that Raissa does differently to other fitness models, is that she takes 1 week breaks from her diet to enjoy junk food. This is mainly due to her busy lifestyle as a fitness icon and celebrity in Brazil, but also to give her breaks from restricting her calories through the year.

Hi Raissa,
Just wanted to let you know how much I love your quads. I have been following fbb since I was a boy. Now I am 73 and your quads are the best I have ever seen. Just amazing. If you get this feel free to write to me if you like. Just a fan and hope you keep getting those quads bigger, if possible. Anyway, I am a retired Academic Adviser from the University of Minnesota and love education. All the best to you in all you do.
