    Default irish female bodybuilding

    did anyone see the supersize she program on tv3 last tuesday,the girl that won the figure show should not have been in that catagory,i think she was physique rather than figure,anyone else think so?

    saw the program myself thought it was pretty good yea im not to sure on one hand i would think physique would be a bit bigger but then again she was the only one that shredded in her category had the deep six and stuff like that

    i felt a bit sorry for the woman from limerick that was in the physique she had obvisously put alot of effort into competing for the show and she was in brilliant shape and she didnt even have anyone to compete against ah well thats the way the cookie crumbles i supouse hopefully the program might have given it some publicity and there might be more next year

    It says the video can only be streamed in the Republic of Ireland.
    You guys with the huge sponsor ads in your signatures make reading the forums annoying.

    hey dub lifter, i agree with you bout the girl from limerick it does kinda suck that she was the only competitor but in my opinion nicoletta(the girl who won the figure show)should have competed against the limerick girl,anyway it was a good show and delighted some bodybuilding got a bit of publicity on a big network. were you at the show? branch was huge!

    no didnt go but yea branch did look pretty big alright it was good that they briefly showed the mens category aswell looked like a pretty good show and yea its great to see bodybuilding getting some air time
    yea well it certainly would have made the physique show alot better i still think the girl from limerick would have won do what you think yourself


    also its a pity that video clip can only be stramed in ireland it would have been good to hear what everyone in america ,england etc thought of it

    totally agree,limerick girl would have won and your right about the thing not streaming outside ireland,defo would be cool to hear some outsiders opinion of irish bodybuilding. Wat gym is best to train in when in dublin,preferably northside of city?

    in total fitness in clare hall they blocked off the weights room to try get rid of all the bodybuilders and powerlifters etc not sure about the one in blanchardstown that might still be ok
    i train in the dublin city corporation gym in ballymun its pretty good decent amount of weights and machines and stuff never really overly packed either only thing is the dumbells only go to 50kg thats not really a huge problem for me now but not sure about yourself
    also you could try hercules http://www.herculesclub.ie/Welcome.html thats there website that in the north inner city
    unique physique is another place at the donaghmeade shopping center
    or there is universal gym its inbetween finglas and blanchardstown

    avoid northwood the cheapness of the place will sound tempting but its impossible to workout there due to the fact that there is about 1 million members

    Thanks for putting up the link irishmuscle! I was at the show and was wondering where this programme would appear. Seeing the men and women of the show and Branch of course gives a good push to start training. I thought it was a really good show and the programme gave a good insight into how the sport is doing in this country.

    I train at totalfitness, their 3 dublin gyms have everything you'll need, Blanchardstown being the best of their clubs by a mile imo.

    i agreaa that nicoletta ahould have been in the other calss and also that she would have been beaten by the limercik girl.

    cant see how she won the catagory she was in, she is way to muscular for figure/body or what ever the fuck the irish bodybuilding federation call it. only one competitor is terrible. there should be a final entry date set so that girls will know weeks in advance if they will be the only one competeing then decide if its worth while or not to diet etc.
