March was busy with Arnold Classic but now the shows are full blown again, not as big as the Arnold Classic. But one thing is for sure female muscle at Arnold Classic was not around much. Not even that many hot bodies, glad we brought a great staff that weekend.

Playing the Game?

Its well known that the moment a competitor wins Olympia title basically everyone wants to have them train, pose, diet you. Ms. Olympia xyz has a seminar it gets full of other competitors, this never changes even if the content of the seminar is terrible people will still attend.

Competitors will pay $500 for 1 hour seminar where you will be told things you already know. Anyone that has watched shows for years can tell you what you need to work on. Maybe your v-taper isn't good enough, your glutes aren't tight etc.. You DO NOT need to pay $500 for Ms. Olympia to tell you this.

What you do need is to get a real seminar about the politics inside the industry, who are the main judges, what shows to go to. What to do to brown nose everyone around. This is what would actually be valuable. But guess what the federations would not be ok with an event like this and would urge competitors not to attend. Again this is the problem with fitness industry its ran by unprofessional people with zero education.

You will never see any censorship on this website unlike others out there that get emails from federation presidents or chairmen ordering them to stop writing this or that. We have been told not to shoot athlete A from certain federation because it conflicted with another federation but we ignore that. Its about the money in a business, if your business can't function alone you have a terrible business model.
