Bodybuilding started to take off when notable athletes like Arnold Schwarzenegger competed and raised the awareness of the sport during the 1970s. In the early 2000s bodybuilding was attempting to become an Olympic sport, but there was received with controversy around whether or not bodybuilding can be considered a sport.

What is aesthetic bodybuilding?

Aesthetic bodybuilding is primarily concerned with how finely tone the muscles of your body look and how little body fat percentage you have. Aesthetic bodybuilding is more about how your body looks rather than how strong you really are.

Abdominal & Thigh Pose

The Abdominal and Thigh Pose requires bodybuilders to show off several of their body features such as chest thickness, front arm size, abs, quadriceps muscle, forearm size, serratus anterior, external intercostals, front calf size, and lat width front. There are several ways to produce this pose, but generally, it requires contestants to put either hand over the head and flex the abs from either side or one side or placing both hands over the head and tightening the abs from the front of the body. Either way, it would excite judges if they can see both the oblique and intercostal musculature.
