Cutting down is tremendously hard on you and everyone around you. As hard as a death in the family. It's not for everyone.

This is what makes the world a great place. Many options and choices a person can make.

If It makes you feel better gasper, competitive bodybuilding IS NOT a sport, Power Lifting is.

So that makes power lifters athletes and competitive bodybuilders nothing.

So by the book we competitive bodybuilders arn't squat. Power Lifters are.
I'd only add that as time goes on, people may find their interests change, or before they even start serious dieting, they may realize they don't particularly welcome being on a bodybuilding stage, and simply enjoy lifting weights.
