There are no set standards in the current scoring system.
Every week, Iron Cinema will connect you with Generation Iron director Vlad Yudin. Giving you unprecedented inside access to the creative process behind his the Generation Iron Fitness Network. Get a first hand look at the entire journey of taking Vlad’s creative ideas to the big screen – from stories on set of films like Generation Iron and CT Fletcher all the way to exclusive behind-the-scene looks at our newest GI news and films. This week Vlad talks with legendary pro bodybuilder Toney Freeman about the lack of standards in IFBB judging and the details of his “mishap” during his trip to Sweden.
Toney Freeman is a bodybuilder you can add onto the long list of competitors who are speaking out against how the sport is currently run. But the big difference between Toney Freeman and many other competitors is that he gets down into the specifics. After speaking with Freeman it became clear to me that it’s not about whether or not bodybuilders are too big or whether or not we need a Classic Physique division. It’s about creating a set of transparent standards that both fans and athletes can understand. In so many words, Freeman shows us how there’s too much subjective reasoning behind the current set of bodybuilding rules. Toney Freeman explains it best himself – which you can watch in my latest interview above.
