Last week, NPC/IFBB Pro League Vice President Tyler Manion shared that there will be expansion worldwide of natural bodybuilding shows.

Manion began by explaining that natural bodybuilding shows in the U.S. will double right away and there will be an additional qualifier in 2025. Natural bodybuilding continues to grow in popularity and Manion believes this expansion will help grow it further.
