I just read that the Jr. USA will be giving the new men's physique division 2 pro cards and the Jr. Nationals is giving 4. I don't have a problem with that but do the same for the bodybuilders.....come on guys!!!!

Im sure this is just something temporary to get the field of pros built up fast so that they can have some good and interesting pro contests. You need a fairly good size field to run a decent contest I would think. They will probably only do this for a limited time. This is just my guess, and to me doing this make sense.

I agree, just like to see a few more pro-card opportunity for the guys.

so is the "Physique" field gonna be for guys that only worked out their upper body for years, and now they can't balance themselves out so they all joined up and had another division put in place for them?

Agreed 100% bro. Wtf are they thinking?

I understand it from a business standpoint but c'mon! The shows are long enuf as is, we dont need anymore 'divisions' to make them longer.

you beat me to this thread bro..

Seriously crazy to think that the Junior USA and Junior Nationals dont give out 1 measly pro card to the overall winner even..

No offense to the competitors but thats why i dont consider neither one of these shows a national level show...Not a single pro card in bodybuilding...''

the best competitors wont do the show for the reason that there is no procard...but now they are going to give out all these cards to physique... whats up with that?

Well hopefully it won't turn into beach body competition, and the pro card issue is bullshit,

but i like the idea of men's physique.. i plan to have a career, etc, and i honestly don't want to be 260+ lbs, No disrecpect to those that do. I idolize heath and kai etc but arnold is IMO the best.. if zane/arnold/reeves style physique can WIN a division now.. that is great.

Especially for the taller guys.. I'm legit 6'1-6'2 and at 220 lbs shredded I think I would get destroyed in the heavies, so physique is something that I might be interested in .. but we'll see how it plays out.

If this turns out to be a bunch of wannabe jersey shore looking mofos, count me out.

i actually think its going to be bunch of Marky Mark wanna be mofos to be honest... and the cards gotta go! and those cards should go to the divisions at the USA that dont give out cards!

Fuckers like me....165 lbs shredders.. We have only 1 show.. one freaking show to turn pro... The nationals.. thats it... and even tougher to get when your on the west coast..

Won't they make it so that if you have a men's physique pro card you can only compete professionaly in those contests? I would'nt think it would give them the right to compete in any professional contest that they wanted to, including mens bodybuilding. Even if they were allowed to compete on stage with professional male bodybuilders, they would be laughed off the stage!

Once they saw the explosion in the Bikini classes, it didn't take long for the light to go off. It's always about the money. At some point the BB portion of the contest will be at the "back of the bus".

Thats what one would think, but there have been many women crossing over between bikini and figure. Shoot even some girls have done FBB, figure, and bikini.. So i'm thinking once you're an IFBB member, you can do whatever you want.

I noticed that a lot of people on facebok are bitching about this new "physique" division, calling them wannabe's with chicken legs, pussies, pretty boys, etc...
Yet when you look at the pics of most of the guys making these comments; they would be lucky to even place in a novice show... That's irony for you...

Don't get me wrong, I like bodybuilding, most of us do... If I could be a ripped 250lbs, I would love that; but most people don't...

The more advanced that bodybuilding gets and more developed the competitors become; the further out of reach and less realisitic they look to the general public...

Sure some may want to see that for it's entertainment value, but they may not be encouraged to participate in it... If they see more realistic physiques they may become more motivated to engage in the sport... When pumping iron came out, bodybuilding exploded, gyms were doing well, women's fitness, bikini and figure did that for women... If we only had women's bodybuilding, we probably wouldn't have a lot of interest in the sport by women...

Most of you have heard women who would train with weights say; "I don't want to build too much muscle" (as if that really happens) because before they didn't really see any in between... I think that's what they're trying to do... Because I'm sure that these guys will have great physiques, after all, they will be competing on physiques, but not to the extent of development that the bodybuilders do... At least not in terms of size...

KPR, you're right about that... I'd hate to sit through 5-6 hour long shows now... That would be a nightmare...
