I stayed out by the airport instead of downtown last year. Much cheaper and I found a great kithenette suite with grocry store nearby - nice to be able to cook fresh food and not worry about chicken thawing and going bad in a cooler. Since the prejudge is thurs and finals sat - long week!!!

Lots of great hotels by the airport - we rented a car and it only took about 15-20 minutes to get to the venue.

Welcome Paloma!

Just be aware that in the USA they judge de bodyfitness classes (figure) very different then at the european or world championships. If you come in to hard and to muscular you may be in for a nasty surprise as many european girls experienced this year.

We strongly encourage you to register early. No registrations will be accepted after January 31, 2010.

Registration Deadline is January 31 , 2010.

Is there going to be Pro cards given out to winners this year or was that strictly a rumor?

Pro cards are not awarded to U.S. competitors who win the Arnold Amateur Men’s and Women’s Bodybuilding, Fitness, Figure and Bikini competitions. However, Arnold Amateur winners who go on to earn a Pro card through a sanctioned-qualifying event will be invited to compete in a future Arnold Classic, Ms. International, Figure International or Fitness International. This is a tremendous and unique opportunity to secure a spot in one of the most prestigious professional bodybuilding shows in the world.

I'm definitely getting excited about this year's show!! So many people from SC competing in it. I'm very impressed: this show has just grown by leaps and bounds since I saw the first one. I just WISH that they would decide to turn this into a pro qualifier. If they would just take that step and hand out some pro cards across the board, then they might as well rename the show the Amateur Olympia because IMHO it would become the biggest amateur show on the planet.

Thanks so much!! It's great to check out who else is competing on here and get to know some other ladies before the big day!! :)

I have always liked the bikini look, so have done a smaller show that had that category in Ontario. This is the first full year Ontario has added the (CBBF/IFBB) Bikini category and I couldn't be more excited!!!
Starting out with the Arnold Am as my first show, and I can't wait!
Then off to Laval a month later for Canadian Natural Nationals .... Looking so forward to 2010!!!

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!! :) See you in just over 7 weeks!!!

I want to share with you my thoughts, experience and changes as I persevere to be the best I can be. If there is anything you want to know please just ask.

Hi Everyone,
I'm a newby from New Zealand and hoping to get accepted to this years Arnold Amateur Classic. I read your posts daily for any news about the event and get butterflies while doing so, LOL!
One question - Is there only a 2 piece bikini round and no one piece required for these classes? (As per below information)

Figure Two Piece Round - Auditorium (Veterans Memorial Main Stage)
Competitors will come out in small groups of six or seven at one time and go through the mandatory poses. Each competitor will then take the stage for their individual presentation. At the conclusion of that assessment they will again take the stage as a group and be separated for comparisons.

A - Up to and including 5'-1"
B - Over 5'-1" and up to and including 5'-2 1/2"
C - Over 5'-2 1/2" and up to and including 5'-4"
D - Over 5'-4" and up to and including 5'-5 1/2"
E - Over 5'-5 1/2" and up to and including 5'-7"
F - Over 5'-7"

Any confirmation would be fabulous and I know that you girls are the ones to ask ;)

Thanks!

Mat, yep u r right about me holding my shoulders closer, i have been told by every judge that my shoulders are too over powering and that they dominate my body, so i have been playing around with it... i did just get my girls added this past year so that has helped take away from how big my shoulders are and makes me more balanced, but you are right when i hold my shoulders in i am not spreading my lats out as much at all and it prevents me from looking as wide up top... 6 weeks to practice!! :)

The trick you do now does not make your delts smaller. The thing you do just makes your upperbody more narrow which is NOT good because you need to have that freaking good x-frame (which you would have if you would not hold your shoulders closer). That is only my opinion though..

Anyway, it looks really good, best of luck girl!

I know that also some Slovakian girls will maybe go, but not BB - Figure girls. I have no full informations who and if their IFBB comitee will let them go. So this year quite a lot girls is prepairing for that show...... Last year was nobody from here there :)

So excited for the Arnold - my nerves are definitely kicking in. Looking forward to meeting everyone! (I'll be the girl with shaking and sweating in the corner!) LOL

Best of luck to everyone!

Just checking one thing..

Am I correct that in Arnold AM they will use NPC rules? So , NO IFBB amateur rules, right?

I ve gotten a tons of emails from IFBB amateur competitors OUTSIDE US who are still confused about one piece round. I ve answered there will be NO one piece round as well as NO black 2 piece, only normal 2 piece (which is our 3rd round).. Checked also the schedule and there is only 2 piece round for figure in prejudging so I assume that I am correct about it ... but as they have been a lot of talk, I wanna be sure about this so could someone please tell me for sure if I am right or wrong?

THANK U :hug:

Yes NPC rules. Two piece, no one piece.

Around 400 competitors will be competing in the Arnold Amateur. This show will be huge!

She is a friend of me and Linda, I really hope that she can do the same as Linda and win at least her class at Arnold!

Good luck Helene, we will cheer for you! :awesome:
