One of the fitness models who work out the hardest in the gym is Raissa. Raissa Rafaelli frequently receives instruction from well-known bodybuilding coach Carol Vaz, who also works with Viviane Winkler.

With three to four rounds of each exercise, she frequently performs high-rep sets of 12 to 15 or even till failure. Raissa believes that this high-volume training was a major factor in helping her shape her slender, curvaceous figure.

The Brazilian likes to concentrate on her lower body because her major objective is to keep sculpting her glutes and legs.

Raissa Rafaelli firmly believes that you can eat the things you want while still sticking to your macros; she doesn’t see the point in sticking to just plain chicken breast and sweet potatoes when she can meet her calorie goals by consuming more enticing meals.

Raissa does one thing differently from other fitness models, though: she takes one-week breaks from her diet to indulge in junk food.

This is mainly because she leads a hectic life as a Brazilian celebrity and fitness queen, but it’s also to give her breaks from calorie-restricting throughout the year.
