Q&A: Competing in Bodybuilding | Erin Stern

Question: "I am looking to compete in my first bodybuilding competition, but how do you decide what division and federation to choose?  Any recommendations?"

The most important questions to ask yourself are, "what do you hope to get out of the experience, and what are your main goals with the competition?" There are so many federations, and it can seem overwhelming when trying to choose your stage! But, it doesn't have to be. If your main goal is gain exposure for yourself or your business, you may choose a large federation with magazine coverage. If you're just looking to showcase your physique and get a feel for competing, you may go with a smaller federation. Some federations do drug testing - which is very important as a natural athlete. I joined the NSpire Sports League, and I did it because their mission statement aligns with mine, and I like the judging guidelines for the divisions. Also, choose a federation with competitors in your division who you'd want to look like!
