Promotions have been stepping up to provide better competition for those who want to compete, but one thing hasn't changed...the top promotion is still the International Federation of Bodybuilders. When you think of bodybuilding, the name IFBB comes to mine instantly, much like how people think of WWE instantly when the word wrestling is brought up. The IFBB has had its big moments in 2011, including hosting a figure show in India and fitness show in Spain for the first time ever. Competitors have cemented their legacies this year by winning and defending titles. Next year, the IFBB will introduce women's physique to their rankings and with their new Olympia qualification rules make their "Super Bowl" more prestigious than ever before. If you thought the IFBB was big now, just wait until 2012.
Others nominated include WBFF, INBF, NABBA, and Fitness America/Universe
