difference in bodybuilding and?"The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent."

Basically, it's all about looking like an Abercromboe & Fitch model. No where near the size & 'shreddedness" of bbFacebook: http://www.facebook.com/Chickthatlifts

And you get marked down for being too muscular, don't get to pose(just quater turns), and will get marked up for looking happier on stage..

I'm no expert, although I did compete in male physique for the first time this past weekend. It felt to me like it's an 8 pack competition. You want good shape to the chest, back, shoulders, but deep cuts in the abdominal area. Also felt like they are judging the Vs. The board shorts need to show the between the hips and abs, having a flat abdominal, kind of like Bradd Pitt in Fight Club.
Much easier to prepare for then bodybuilding, where you have to know poses and a minute routine, etc.
