2016 IFBB Schedule: Bodybuilding, Physique, Fitness, Figure and Bikini

The sport of bodybuilding has been experience a bit of a boom the last couple of years, as more divisions have been introduced. The rise of men's and women's physique, as well as bikini, has brought more competitors to the sport, along with more eyes tuned into the sport. This as been a win-win for the IFBB, its competitors and fans.

The growth of the sport does not seem to be slowing down heading into the year 2016, as the IFBB will be introducing yet another new division in men's classic physique. This division has been in demand for many years and now it will finally be a part of the competition circuit, as well as a division in the biggest event of the year Mr. Olympia.

There are more contests, in more countries, taking place in 2016 than in years past. Among the new shows coming in 2016 are Arnold Classic Asia, Arnold Classic Africa and, the most interesting one, the Mr. Olympia Europe Pro. It looks like the Mr. Olympia brand will be following in the footsteps of the Arnold Classic, in that it will be taking place more than once a year and in multiple continents.

The Arnold Classic will have six different pro shows on six different continents (North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia) in 2016, while the Mr. O will have two different pro shows on two different continents (North America and Europe).

To see all of the contests taking place in 2016, keep reading below.
