” Russian champion Ekaterina armsportu Nikisheva try their hand at bodybuilding, in the category “bikini”, and dispelled the myth about girls who are engaged in power sports and martial arts, they are losing their femininity. Marvel at Catherine, she’s really adorable. This year the championship of Russia, she was recognized as the most beautiful athlete on armsportu and dignity confirms this title.
IRON WORLD: Catherine, tell us how the idea to make a bikini fitness category, as you combine the preparations and, of course, are you going to continue to perform?
Nikisheva Catherine: It all started with the fact that one day my husband and I, we flip through a report from the competition where our friend participated in the category bodyfitness, and of course, could not miss the nomination fitness bikini. I watched with admiration as they are pretty, smart and nothing more. Her husband said: “Yes, you and the form itself is not worse!”.
That’s when me and flashed a spark of interest. The fitness club began to pay attention to the speakers bikinistok and one day decided, why not try it. And start preparing! This helped me a seasoned athlete and coach, MSIC on classic bodybuilding Dmitry Krylov, for which I want to thank him, take this opportunity! About my decision to act in the “bikini” very few people knew, but even among them were those who were skeptical, saying: “You have to bow arm wrestling championship of Russia on only lose power, did not really prepare.” But that did not stop me, and even, on the contrary, added enthusiasm. In addition, the closest people and especially my husband supported me. In the end, I still became a champion of Russia on the amount of hands, and it was incredibly welcome and long-awaited victory, to which I was more than a year. I went into the six finalists in the Cup Victory in the category fitness bikini and I think that is a good result for such a short period of training.
Yes, now I can admit that it was hard. But for me, the most difficult were not even a daily workout (and sometimes two a day), because it was necessary to have time and here and there, and fatigue, and the realization that I’m really not able to fully devote himself to preparing for Championship of Russia on armsportu, and it was for me is much more important. And these thoughts did not give me rest. But since I already took for this retreat was not used, and 11 April I had my debut in the category of fitness bikini.
Of course, it was exciting, I wanted to win, but I already know that I will not continue that spirit I where armsport table, where the direct fight with a rival, but on stage I do not feel comfortable, and do not have those emotions that in the fight. I’m not considered a bikini fitness as a sport, which will replace the arm wrestling, and he was left in the first place. “Bikini” – it’s just an interesting experiment and experience. Maybe even my example would be a powerful argument for those girls who would like to try myself in the arm wrestling classes, but are afraid to spoil the shape. Indeed, in armwrestling I have 10 years, and a fitness bikini only a couple of months! Do not be afraid to armsportu girls! ”
