Last weekend I participated in the NPC Brooklyn – Mens Physique division. Those unfamiliar with the new division should know that competitors are judged by muscularity, body composition, stage presence and personality. Much like bodybuilding but competitors are wearing board shorts. I placed 2nd out of 15 competitors. My first mens physique competition was enjoyable and rewarding. I was glad to be on stage with lots of tough and seasoned competitors. I think the division will take off in popularity as it gives fans and viewers a more achievable/pleasant physique to stare at. Lets not call it mens physique, to me its more like battle of the fitness models.
