Open weight bodybuilding is a different kind of beast compared to all the other divisions you will see at a given event. For athletes competing in the open weight class it’s all about how much muscle they can pack onto their frame while still maintaining good proportions. It’s a difficult task to say the least. You have to build yourself up to the size of the Hulk while burning fat from your body and revealing all the shred hidden underneath. Depending on who you ask the individuals who did this the best were old school bodybuilders like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Frank Zane, and Sergio Oliva just to name a few. Another classic bodybuilder held in high regard is Tom Platz.
