Note: In no way am I saying i will become an IFBB Pro bodybuilder, I was just interested.
I read this about becoming a pro bb in the IFBB:
United States citizens must compete in an NPC sanctioned contest to become an IFBB professional because the NPC is the national affiliate to the IFBB in the United States. If you compete in another federation, and receive any form of prize, then you can be ineligible to compete in the NPC, and thus the IFBB.
Which made me think.
How does one go from being the average bodybuilding competitor to IFBB pro?
-What federations do you have to compete in?
-Do you really have to be a citizen of the US?
-How does an Australian do this, or anyone else for that matter?
OZ, has an IFBB Australia, but if one was to compete in a different federation and win, say in a Natural comp first, are they not allowed to compete with the IFBB??
