Barbie Ferreira is fairly regular with her workout routines. However, her workout choices are just as unconventional as she is. She doesn’t like lifting lightweight and performing high reps. Instead, she likes to go heavy in the gym. In fact, it is her goal to be muscular by the time, she reaches her 40s. She believes, as a woman, you can never get big, you only get stronger.
Barbie is also a big runner. However, she doesn’t like signing up for hardcore classes as she is still insecure over her less than athletic childhood. Plus, she likes to get involved in Yoga sessions as well.
When it comes to diet, she likes to have smoothies for breakfast. She is also a fan of having acai bowls with loads of granola and peanut butter as the first meal in the morning. For lunch, she likes to have a salad from her favorite restaurant. In case, she is hungrier, she goes for healthy sandwiches.
