- Overall Winners
Bodybuilding Competition -
amateur bodybuilding competition, after the weight-class winners are
announced there is a posedown among the winners of each class to
determine the overall winner. This means that, having won a weight
class, you don't relax and begin to celebrate. You have another
bodybuilding posedown to deal with. While the bigger bodybuilders tend
to win these overall titles, it is by no means a sure thing.
Middleweights and even lightweights have been known to take the overall.
Furthermore, since the overall winner is selected in just a few minutes
onstage, it is essential that you pump yourself up to the highest energy
levels for this challenge, especially since overall winners in amateur
bodybuilding contests frequently win the privilege of turning pro!
to this procedure is the IFBB World Amateur Championships - until 1976
know as the Mr. Universe contest. There is no overall winner selected at
the World Championships. In the past, each class winner was eligible to
turn pro and was immediately qualified for the Mr. Olympia contest.
However, this resulted in too many bodybuilders at the Mr. Olympia who
simply weren't competitive, so more recently the IFBB has been holding a
posedown for the class to select one bodybuilding competitor from the
Mr. Universe to be invited to enter the Mr. Olympia. Even then, the
winner's national federation still has to recommend him to the pro
division of the IFBB before he is invited to compete in the pinnacle of
bodybuilding competition which is the - Mr Olympia bodybuilding
