Let’s take you through 7 things you didn’t know about the hot fitness model.
Alic Matos Facts
1. She was already an athlete before she dabbled in bodybuilding.
Growing up in her native Florianopolis, Brazil, Alice was drawn to athletics early in life. As a child, she played various sports including volleyball, basketball, and soccer.
2. Professional bodybuilding for Alice started accidentally, well sort of…
Though Alice had always been athletic since as a kid, she never once dreamed of pursuing a career as a bodybuilder. However, sometime before the summer of 2010, Alice began following established athletes like Larissa Reis, Michelle Lewin, and Oksana Grinisha.
Inspired by their hot bodies, Alice decided to get a personal trainer so she could look in the right shape in time for summer.
And so the training began and after about a year of intense workout and following a strict diet, her personal trainer realized that she had developed a body that could give most female bodybuilders the run for their money. He encouraged her to enter her first competition which would be the 2011 Arnold Classic in Ohio, America.
Alice once said about her career as a bodybuilder; “I never imagined participating in a bodybuilding championship at first. I did not want to lose my femininity. But I decided to take my chances and favorable genetics for bodybuilding. And now I love the physique that I gained from it!”
3. Alice won her first competition (the 2015 IFBB Bikini Championship in Santa Catarina) after many failed tries
Though Alice began competing in 2011, it took her four years before she would snap her first ever accolade.
After making her debut in 2011, Alice became more determined to push herself to limits. Alice says her motivation came from the desire to overcome all the limits of her body.
In a bid to improve her first performance, Alice returned to the 2012 Arnold Classic competition. This time, she was placed 6th. Later that year, she entered the 2012 IFBB Brazilian Championship coming 5th place. Alice improved yearly and finally got her dream in 2015.
Today, Alice has been privileged to model beside fellow fitness model Michelle Lewin whom she once looked up to. Her star power has earned her a feature on the blog, Hardcore Ladies.
4. The work out routine that works best for Alice is a full routine.
Alice works out 5 times in a week and incorporates 40 – 50 minutes of Cardio. Her three favorite exercises include; Barbell Squats, Back Row, and Bech Press.
Alice says she loves these moves because they are compound movements which involve the use of more than one muscle group at a time which is the best way to build muscle mass.
