Bodybuilding Competitions

Bodybuilding competitions are fairly common, and are generally funded by bodybuilding organizations and associations. Weight lifting contests almost always focus on strength, such as Olympic weight lifting and powerlifting competitions. Visit the sites below to find out about contests, and to get advice on starting and advancing a competitive bodybuilding or weight lifting career.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Some of these sites offer results from previous contests, including stats and pictures. Look for a link labeled "competition results" or "photo gallery."
  • Bodybuilding and weight lifting organizations often run separate competitions for men and women, so don't dismiss a contest simply because it looks open to only one gender. If you dig a little deeper, you may find news about competitions for the opposite sex, too.
