Starting Training

Vivi began training seriously in 2006. Since then, she’s been pushing herself hard and working out almost everyday to surpass her goals, one after the other. She enjoys training her quadraceps the most, and provides fans with regular videos of these workouts on social media.

In terms of gym equipment, Vivi loves using the extensor chair for her lower body strength workouts. She includes a lot of dumbbell sets for her upper body, where she aims to create a strong and toned body, as opposed to the big bulky look, says Vivi.


Cardio is also extremely important to Vivi. She likes to train outdoors and often runs around her local town. As Rio De Janeiro is blessed with a tropical climate, many local bodybuilders take advantage of this all-year-round sunshine to workout outdoors, and Vivi is no exception to this.

Just out of curiosity …. are you on steroids …. as for 56kg …. and 5ft11 you look huge …. I’m 86kg …. 5ft10 and my quads are no were near your size … no insult intended

She’s 5’3 and her weight is different to you as she has very little percentage of fat, and only muscle. Everybody is different!

Vivi, this is Ibrahim Franco. Dad of Natasha, a physical Instructor. She is very interested in a red outfit you have. I believe a Store has it. I called the number from USA but connection cuts off. I try copy and paste the image here but it won’t work. If you can help

She is nowhere near 5’11″…… nice, toned body with lovely muscle…. she looks taller because she poses next to her trainer and some of the other physique girls who are all super short.

Before pic, hot. After pic, hot and on Anavar

Possible she just has amazing genetics, but Brazilians love the juice so I doubt it

Why do people ask the stupid personal question, “Just out of curiosity …. are you on steroids …”
That is just as personal as me asking you…. “do you swallow “

It took her 6 years to get this physique she said it herself on her Instagram page. She is not on steroids. You can achieve this look in SIX years with a good diet and, consistent exercise.

The height is wrong. She is 171cm according to her instagram. She post a picture of her with that height in legend.

I admire her body and hard work ethic.

Hi Sofia,

Thanks for the validation on that stat. We’ve just updated Vivi’s profile.

I have seen her stand next to other woman who I know for a fact are 5-2 at best and she towers over them. Look at some of her videos on IG. She is at the very least 5-8 to 5-10 . And without a doubt she had a “little help” . She has incredible quads and she is drop dead gorgeous
