Weights 4 Women introduces WBFF Figure pro, Su Farrell……….
Welcome to Weights 4 Women Su! Introduce yourself and give us a bit of background information on how you was introduced to weight training?
My name is Su Farrell and as a previous gymnast I have been training for most of my life. I started hitting the gym as soon as I was old enough and have trained consistently since then. I took up competitive powerlifting in 2011 and claimed the title of WPC World Powerlifting Champion at the end of that year. I then made the switch to bodybuilding, first competing with The UKBFF and later with The WBFF where I placed 6th in the world in the Pro Figure division.
You have competed across multiple different sports at the highest level, what do you consider your greatest achievement?
As a teenager I had nationals trials in both netball and basketball which I am very proud of. Becoming WPC World Powerlifting Champion was also a fantastic achievement. But my greatest achievement to date would have to be placing 6th in the world at last years WBFF World Championships. Knowing the work I put in to get there, I was super proud of myself.
My mum. She is one of the strongest women I know and has accomplished so much on her own. She has taught me how to be a strong, independent woman.
What are your 3 favourite exercises?
It depends! I don’t have any exercises that I would call my absolute favourite, I like to mix things up in the gym.
If you could give the females reading this one bit of training advice, what would it be?
Do not be afraid. Do not be afraid of setting foot in the gym, or lifting heavy weights, or changing your physique, or making positive life changes. Do not listen to peoples negativity. There will always be someone who has something negative to say, but stay strong and consistent and you will never look back.
What does the future hold for you, any future goals you would like to share?
I was unable to compete at The WBFF World Championships this year due to personal reasons, so I have a few plans for the upcoming months but I’m afraid I can’t share those with you just yet! 😉
I am now offering online coaching so if you are interested please email me at email@example.com. Thank you!
