    Bodybuilding Is Not A Sport






    Bodybuilding is not a sport and has never been one.

    It's an EXHIBITION.

    If you disagree, give 1-5 reasons why posing on stage in not an EXHIBITION.

    I realize that you want it to be a sport.

    I want to win the lottery.

    sport ( P ) Pronunciation Key (spôrt, sprt)
    n.

    Physical activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively.
    A particular form of this activity.
    An activity involving physical exertion and skill that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often undertaken competitively.
    An active pastime; recreation

    I think bodybuilding fulfills all of these requirements.
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.

    Wow, way to come in with a bang Soy... you sure that soy isnt increasing your estrogen too much?

    Bodybuilding is indeed a sport. Posing on stage could even be taken as a sport... but particularily lifting weights in the gym definitely is.

    I often think of sports as something that you have to have a certain amount of skill to perform. You can't just hit a baseball or dunk a basketball without a lot of practice and skill.

    BB is the same way. You can't exhibit your body just walking onto a stage and starting to pose. Posing actually requires a lot of skill to do properly. Also, it requires hard work and training to get to the level where you can actually compete at it.
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.

    Ditto, BB is a sport!!
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    You come on here new and come out with a thread like this? Not to kosher man. And you ask us to provide you with reasons why it is a sport? No, this is your theory, so you support your bogus claim with reasons.

    If you look at his posts, all of them are just out to cause problems and arguments. He's doing nothing more then stirring up what doesn't need to be stirred up.

    Some people just need to get a life.

    Hey Jughead
    Bodybuilding is not a sport, but exercising your inferiority complex is, right.
    Success is measured not by the position that one has reached in life, rather by the obstacles which one has overcome while trying to succeed.

    Watch out guys/gals, Soyhead is a 85lb monster. Once i even saw him literally throw the clips back on the weight rack like they were nothing.

    Bodybuilding takes the MOST discipline out of any sport there is. I've played competitively and excelled at pretty much every sport there is, and every one of them is not NEARLY as tough as BB (w/ the exception of X-Country and the 200m dash). Think about it, the way to get better is by exerting pain to yourself. Diet, Sleep, Training is just a starting point.

    But Honestly, what is your point?

    Yup, posing correctly is very difficult, it takes skill and a lot of practice to perfect.

    This is very obvious when you go to an amatuer show and watch the novice class!

    Like countless others he forgot it's called: Body Building, as in health building.

    More than his body, Platz was #1 for building his ego.

    Tom Platz = Mr. Mega Ego

    Platz was the world's hardest trainer. So.

    What did it ever get him? Quote: "I'll win the Olympia or die trying!"

    (Mohamed Makkawy ranked higher than Platz.)

    He neither won nor died. Another blow hard bites the dust.

    Now he's a big movie star! Did you know he starred in 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag, with Joe Pesci?

    He did. He was one of the heads! Was he singing or dancing or both? Some star. ...and some say Arnold can't act.

    Another quote: "...even the President of Ghana wanted to meet me." ...ego!

    ...and what's with bleaching his hair for 25 years? ha ha ha ha Has anyone ever told him how SILLY that looks? (Tell Lee Priest while you're at it. )

    ...and what's with Platz gritting his teeth in ever photo, as if he's lifting a car off someone?? Give us a break!

    Platz is a nice guy(met him at the '81 Olympia), but he ain't no Golden Eagle.

    Danny Padilla(5th place '81 Olympia) was the real winner of the 1981 Olympia! Danny's a class act all the way! Look for him at the next Masters O. He could come in at 215lbs., at 5'2"!

    Check out Danny's website: www.google.com

    Bill Dobbins said it best. He likened it to gymnastics where they are judged on form of movement, except the bodybuilder is judged on form of body. BB's are extreme athletes and train very hard. To exclude them as athletes is bogus. I mean where would we post the results for BB contests if not the sports page?
    The competitive nature of BB makes it a sport as well. Pose downs make it a sport as well, flexing for an extended period is strenuous. Bodybuilding is both a sport and an art form. Enough said.

    I don't think bocybuilding is a sport. by your definition beer pong is a sport and it is not. It is more of a way of life really, same as BBing.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    i'm just saying from my own personal experience, i've played basketball, soccer, baseball, track, cross country and hockey all at a competitive level (meaning high school level or higher w/ refs and such in an actual real game, not a pick up game).

    BB is the hardest sport there is, except for X-country (you wanna talk about endurance) and the 400m dash in track (nothing in any sport i've ever done kills you like this, except BB)
    You're a funny guy, Sully, I like you. Dat's why I'm going to kill you lahst.
