Whindersson Nunes is a Brazilian actor, singer, songwriter, social media star, writer, and comedian, best known for his YouTube channel named “whinderssonnunes”, which has amassed an audience of more than 37 million subscribers and more than 3 billion views. It wasn’t his 1st YouTube channel, as he had another one that he made when he was 15 years old. That channel went largely unnoticed until 2012 when he uploaded his parody video Alô vó, tô reprovado or Hello Grandma, I’m Disapproved which went viral and garnered more than 5 million views on YouTube. Not too long after, he started touring as a stand-up comedian, but disaster struck in 2013 when the channel was hacked and deleted, which led him to create the “whinderssonnunes” channel on January 21, 2013. Whindersson continued uploading vlogs, parodies, spoofs, film reviews, demonstration of songwriting, and other very diverse types of content.
He is also known for his theater stand-up comedy shows, later released on DVD, titled Standapiando (2013-2014), Marminino (2015-2016), Proparoxyton (2017-2018), Jeez, I got Married (2018-2019), and The Return of What Wasn’t (2019). Whindersson has also promised he would upload all of his stand-up comedy shows to his YouTube channel because he believes everyone should be able to watch it from the comfort of their home, with popcorn in their lap. In 2019, Whindersson slowly began taking his comedy to an international level, primarily through his Netflix stand-up comedy movie release, titled Whindersson Nunes: Adult, spoken in Brazilian Portuguese but translated to other languages. He has also amassed a large fanbase online with more than 33 million followers on Instagram, more than 12 million followers on Twitter, and more than 6 million followers on Facebook.

Set – 10 reps of incline chest flys, 10 reps of incline chest press, 10 reps of incline chest flys, and then 6 reps of incline chest press. He changes the grip to supinated at times in order to switch things up. He takes no rest in-between exercises to maximize muscle tension, hence the name “superset”.
4. Barbell Bench Press
Set – As many reps with an empty bar as possible until complete burnout
Superset – Dumbbell Biceps Curls / Barbell Biceps Curls
Set – He takes a slowly-declining weight approach to feel the maximal burn in his biceps.
