Our Trip To The Arnold's Expo
Last month (March, 2010) myself and 7 friends took a trip to the USA to check out the Arnold Expo in Columbus, Ohio.
This was the first time I've been to the "Arnold's", although I've wanted to go for a few years... and it did not disappoint! There was an extremely high level Amateur Strongman competition (with a large numer of competitors from several different countries), bodybuilding contests, women's physique contests, powerlifting, olympic weightlifting, Pro Strongman, martial arts, grip strength, and many, many other events and competitions!
There were also hundreds of booths to explore promoting fitness supplements and equipment, many of which were giving away free samples. Naturally I came home with a huge bag full of booty!
The Expo was very crowded all day every day we were there, but it was great to be surrounded by so much high energy and so many other people living the strength and fitness lifestyle. Sure, some of it seemed a little superficial and somewhat "commercial", but anytime you have strongman, powerlifting, bodybuilding, and weightlifting under the same roof, it's gotta be good!
Overall it was a great trip... I'd definitely consider going again next year.
