Following last weekends NPC Jnr Nationals the following amendments have been made to what the judges are looking for in figure:
no leg definition whatsoever
NO flared lats
NO capped shoulders
Well as most of you know I am a converted figure girl to bb. And this is shocking at most to me. I am disappointed about the new rules. What the hell are they thinking.
Boy I knew this was happening. If you look back over the past competitions over the years you see the pros getting smaller. Monica Brant for example use to be very cut and pretty good size she has gotten smaller over the last 2 years due to judges telling her that she was to big. Some of them do not flex their legs at all in order for them to look smaller. Sad this is happening. But what can you do when you have so many girls coming in to compete that have never really lifted except for the pink dumbbells. I know my place now because after the last comp I was shafted due to being toooo cuttt. Oh well I would rather have fun with music and posing.
I think the way we could boycott somehow like the shows that have only figure don't go to the shows dont support them. Maybe then if we hurt them in the pockets they will change the sport which was created for the people that did not want the size the women bb had and could not compete against the fitness girls. It was created for the girls who had fitness figures with out the fitness routine. Girls who had some good muscle mass but not to much. Nice legs with a nice back not the size of a bb and not the size of just a bikini girl.
well I have vented enough. I am going to write to a friend of mine that is married to the East Coast Chairperson of NPC and see what the heck is going on.
