When: May 7

Where: Reno-Sparks Convention Center Grand Ballroom

Over 150 athletes will show off the best physique of their lives at the 5th annual NPC Mother Lode presented by Private MD Labs. This is an amateur bodybuilding competition sanctioned by the National Physique Committee with a steampunk circus theme.

When people think of bodybuilding, they usually think of massively muscular men like in the movies; but this is far from reality! All types of male and female athletes will bring their best physiques to the stage in the following divisions: Fitness, Bikini, Bodybuilding, Classic Physique, Men’s Physique, Women’s Physique, Figure, and Wellness. Within each division, you’ll spot competitors ranging from 18 years old to 80. 

For judging, competitors appear in lineups and perform specified poses. They are ranked on symmetry, muscularity, size, conditioning, posing, and stage presentation. Athletes compete for custom championship trophies, a coveted NPC National Qualification, and free entry to Center Podium’s IFBB Professional League qualifier in Kazakhstan! One lucky winner will even receive a free flight!

Don’t miss this exciting, fun fitness extravaganza!
