yes because putting on lip-stick is as hard as squatting 500+lbs for reps.[/quote]
yeah well try applying mascara while driving, that’s an elite athletic skill set right there.
Serially though, I agree that the preparation, both physical and mental, are a sport, and one that I have a ton of respect and admiration for because I could never do it. The show is a pageant.
OP, you’ve been on stage what’s your opinion?[/quote]
Same as yours. The road to get stage ready is a sport. The stage itself…well it depends on how you look at it. From a judging/winning perspective it’s not a sport i.e no objective comparison criteria.
However, from the perspective of actually being on stage as a competitor, flexing the hell out of every muscle so damn hard that you would get cramps were it not for the hours of posing practice put in, and damn near passing out from trying not to breathe too much so that your abs stay flexed…yup sure feels like a sport!
