Competing in any endevour tends to bring the best out of us. Many people choose to do a bodybuilding competition in order to give themselves a formal challenge. There is bodybuilding for men and women which is judged based on the body's overall muscularity, symmetry, and proportionality. For women there are also fitness (which includes a gymnastics floor routine), figure, and the recently added bikini division (the latter two judged solely on physique, posture, poise, etc). Preparing for a competition requires hard work and discipline with your physical training, diet, posing practice, and mental focus. There is nothing more satisfying than getting into the best shape of your whole life and going up against other competitors who have also dedicated themselves towards physical perfection. Masters Divisions hold classes for over 40, 50, 60 years old, so it is never to late to go for it!
