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 light weight 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.
