Competitive Bodybuilding...anyone here?

Good morning all, just curious as to how many folks on this forum are currently competitive bodybuilders? Classic Bodybuilding? Figure? Physique? Etc.? If so, anyone competing in Masters Class? Just curious. :)

Thanks for indulging me!

    Nice! Anything planned? I'm waiting to get past this lockdown no lockdown mess before I commit. But I do miss it. Last competition was in 2015. was 52. Itching to do it again.

    Been thinking about it but man it costs so much!! It’s all in the posing though for sure. I always tell myself that if I get 30 mins of posing practice I could do well. nym3suosq2wi.jpeg

    Yes, it can be expensive. What I tend to find the hardest is the meal prep! UGH! Looks like you are not far away from stage ready! I think you could definitely do well! What are you thinking? Figure? Physique? Bikini? Bodybuilding?

    ABOVE today weighing in at 264lbs. Talking with a good friend to prep for a show sometime late next year. Hoping we don't go into lockdown again. However, today was a good day! Veins are showing up. I miss this level of conditioning BELOW from my last competition in 2015.
