Bodybuilding Worldwide

Sometimes it’s hard not to get too focused on the hype that is western bodybuilding. We all wait and watch for the big shows like the Olympia and the Arnold, then there are the thousands of small shows all over the US, Canada, Europe and Australia. Most of us have great gyms, access to as many supplements as we can afford, and food is just down at the grocery store. But what about the rest of the world? I find it fascinating when I hear of bodybuilding events in other places in the globe. Africa, Asia and the Middle East have bodybuilders too, and good ones if the pictures I’ve seen are any indication. As different as I imagine our worlds are, maybe it shouldn’t be surprising that those bodybuilders and organizations have some of the same challenges and issues that we have. You may have heard about the IFBB suspension [link:] of the Asian Bodybuilding Federation back in April, for allowing several banned bodybuilders to compete, and just like here, Arnold is everyone’s hero. So really, I guess we’re all in the same bodybuilding boat no matter where we are.

Check out some of these links to bodybuilding stories and events from around the world:

Uganda’s Bob Classic Bodybuilding Championship.
Fiji’s Kimberly Blow Up Bodybuilding Championship.
The Mr. India Bodybuilding Championship
The Philippine Bodybuilding Alliance
A USA Today story about Iraq bodybuilding.
A Washington Post article about bodybuilding in Afghanistan.
