The modern "sport" of professional bodybuilding, and the fitness industry in general, is really nothing more than a farce ...a prime example of all the worst that capitalism has to offer. Other than some rigorously tested "drug-free" federations (i.e. WNBF), I wouldn't call any of these drug addicts with obvious mental issues "bodybuilders". A pretty blunt viewpoint to be sure, but that's how I see it.
