What are your thoughts on the Men's Physique Division? I think the Men's Physique division will do great things for the sport of bodybuilding. It will definitely open the Fitness World to a more broad spectrum of competitors, fans, and sponsors; hopefully reducing some of the negative connotations that go along with the phrase "competitive bodybuilding". Most people aren't looking to get as big, strong, and as ripped as possible but instead would like to live a more healthy and fit lifestyle. The physique category will definitely spark the interest of these individuals only helping the sport grow as a whole.
