    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.

    remember bodybuilders have the most muscles than average athlete.
    They r not only competing against others....also against themselves.

    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...

    I just do it, don't care for the definition. But if your trying to rag on bodybuilding by saying its not a sport, then it is a sport. Because I said so, regardless of other opinions, and definitions. Thanx
    These are my favorite faces : - - -

    Personal Bests:

    Bench - 235
    Deadlift - 315 X 17
    Squat - 315 X 11
    40 yrd. - 4.65

    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.
