My First Physique Competition ( Video)

So mods can delete the other thread. I was just trying to confirm what I already thought and that is that BB'ers should not be able to cross over to physique and place in top 3 in both. That is exactly what happened at my show. Again no big deal, I just thought it was odd. This was my first...
