Female Bodybuilding at the NPC Nationals continues to grow. Last year under 70 competed. The year before 60 women competed in female bodybuilding.

I wonder if the powers that be are happy with the number of bikini competitors? Id say for the first Nationals-exceeding female Bbding #'s it seems like its a huge success:bowdown::bowdown:

what will be interesting is how it will progress over the years...will "figure" cross over to Bikini in search of that IFBB PRO card-while fresh blood joins in on bikini...Im gonna guess and say yes...which is good for all of bodybuilding...more compettors..more shows..more audience...more exposure...more oppurtunities:awesome::respect:

Wonder why they did drop.. or switch us from nationals.!? they've got every division except us... and that even includes the new bikini. I feel so left out! LOL I guess I'll be blowing up my computer hitting refresh to get the updates from the show instead of enjoying that sunshine! =)

In 2007 the Fitness Nationals was attached to the Bodybuilding Nationals, than they changed it, and added Fitness Nationals to Team U (and also removed a fitness pro qualifier, in 2007 fitness was apart of both Team U and Nationals).

Fitness was declining and figure was growing. So we ended up with one more pro qualifier for figure and one less for fitness, but they did however make the Jr USA and Jr Nationals pro qualifiers for fitness and figure. Overall fitness lost one or maybe two pro cards.

yeah, I know. I know they can't give us 20 cards/yr or something because we just don't have the #s for it. just sucks that we're the only ones who don't get to take part in the biggest national show of the year... I guess I could've done figure, but that's not my 'home' division... so it just wouldn't be the same. But still here cheering on all the lovely ladies who WILL be competing!! GO TEAM SC!! =):awesome:
