The updated IFBB Pro League and Pro qualifier schedules have been released.
2018 will be a different year regarding the amount of competitions being organized.
Since the split between the IFBB International and the NPC/IFBB Pro League, the NPC have expanded in Europe and other parts of the world with IFBB Pro qualifiers.
The IFBB International has also continued on their path with numerous amateur shows with IFBB Elite Pro qualifiers and IFBB Elite Pro shows as well.
As evolutionofbodybuilding.net on a number of occasions said that the athlete has more options for his or her career. One might choose the IFBB Pro League and one might choose the IFBB Elite Pro league. It all depends on what makes sense regarding traveling, finances and future plans.
