Beefcake Walk

In the words of eight-time Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman, “Everybody wanna be a bodybuilder, but don’t nobody wanna lift no heavy-ass weights.”

The competitors at the Organization of Competitive Bodybuilders’ Arizona Natural Physique Competition know all about pumping serious iron, with a specialty in cutting up without shooting up.

The OCB isn’t fooling around when it comes to keeping contestants all natural. Winners will be required to submit to a urine screening, and every entrant must undergo a polygraph to determine if they are clean and eligible to compete in their category.

See what hard work and narcissistic obsession can accomplish as magnificent mortals vie for victory in the fitness, model, bikini, figure and bodybuilding divisions.
