The Debate Will Always Beat On…

Bodybuilding has and always will be the cream of the crop, it’s the sport that started the whole movement, kids from the 80’s and 90’s grew up watching people like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and even He-Man on television, some of these kids grew up to become professional bodybuilders – but over time things have changed and bodybuilding has become more of a size game. That’s why the Men’s Physique division was created, people wanted something attainable, something “prettier” to look at, something that resembled the physiques of the 60’s and 70’s.

At the end of the day, the debate will always go on. Some fans will always prefer the physique look while others will prefer the bodybuilding build. That said, no division is better than the other, each has its own pros and cons. Hardcore bodybuilding fans need to understand and respect what the physique division stands for because it’s here to stay for a long time, the division has gotten so big that it now has its own spot in the 2015 Arnold Classic.

Physique competitors need to understand and remember that bodybuilding is the original division that started it all and the division that brings the most spectators to the federations around the world, comparing bodybuilding and physique is almost like comparing apples to oranges, at the end of the day both divisions make the sport that much popular so why not learn to respect and enjoy both?
