This is a huge weekend for bodybuilding!
Oh, yes, there is that thing called the Olympia, it’s in Vegas or somewhere, and I believe the likes of Phil Heath and Jay Cutler will be popping along, and that there will be the first-ever Women’s Physique Division Olympia class.
There is that.
But closer to home, we have the UKDFBA open championships, with the likes of my good self popping along.
So let’s talk about that 😉
The UKDFBA (United Kingdom Drug Free Bodybuilding Association)* show is an exciting one for many reasons.
The UKDFBA (now in its 3rd year) is the British affiliate of the WNBF (World Natural Bodybuilding Federation) and the only route to the WNBF/INBF world stage for us Brits.
And, this year, the UKDFBA show will feature the Women’s European Pro show – a rare chance to see WNBF Pro female bodybuilders competing in this country. It’ll be fantastic to see – I can’t wait!
*(You can see why most of us – particularly on low carb days – opt to call it “Lee’s show” 😉 )
There are a few other reasons for my excitement over this show: it’s close enough to my Mum’s house (hashtag: #thefitmum hee hee) that I get to go and stay with her for the weekend 😀 And the show will be one big celebration of this year’s bodybuilding. It’s such a popular show, and comes towards the end of the season, so almost all of my bodybuilding friends will be there either competing or spectating.
I forecast a lot of fun, a very happy weekend, and some good memories!
