I train my whole body once a week divided at 5 times, 4 sets with 8 reps and 3 or 4 different exercises on each muscle group. I try to change exercises now and then, to get some variation.
Monday – Chest/stomach
Tuesday – Shoulders
Wednesday - Legs
Thursday - Arms
Friday – Back/stomach
Sunday - Rest
Before a competition I walk or bicycle one or two Hours per day.
My best body parts are my arms and shoulders and my focus now is to work hard on my legs.
I believe that you always have to eat well to feel good and to get the most out of your training. The only difference before a contest is that I cut down on fat, carbohydrates and the amount of food.
This is what I eat:
Fish, shrimps, tuna, chicken, eggs and red meat with salads and vegetables and rise. I use oil for cooking, peanuts for snacks.
I love to spend time with my family and friends. Sometimes I paint and compete with my greyhound.
Motto in life: Just do it!
Irene does not do sessions or wrestling of any kind. Please don't ask!!
"Too Big for the World"
Two filmmakers, Renzo and Hanna Aneröd, are making a documentary about me and about the future of female bodybuilding. The documentary is called TOO BIG FOR THE WORLD and will be a very inspiring and powerful documentary!
The goal with TOO BIG FOR THE WORLD is that it will be The ”Pumping Iron 2 - The women” of today and that the film will spread all over the world.
The filmmakers follow me when I compete in professional bodybuilding competitions. We also meet up with the big profiles in the industry. We have already made our first trip to Los Angeles where we met Lenda Murray and more.
We will come to US again in September for The Olympia. Here we will meet up with more female bodybuilders and other big names in the bodybuilding world.
July 7 the filmmakers and I launch an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign and this is very exciting! It's important that the campaign get a big start for it to get a wide spread and get as many people as possible to donate. Donations are tax-deductible through our fiscal sponsor.
