History

The American Natural Bodybuilding Federation is a small, drug-free league.

All new competitors begin as amateurs and can compete to qualify for the Pro association. Competitors must be at least 16-years-old.

First-time competitors are classified as "debut" and "novice" means you've competed before but have not placed first ever.

They used to offer a Class Bikini division but they got rid of that in 2019 so now there is just one bikini division - Bikini.

Show Schedule & Cost

Despite COVID, they have a 2021 schedule planned with about one show a month so far. Visit their schedule page to see all the contests planned for the year in the USA.

It costs $75 to join the league as an amateur each year.

Drug-free Contests

Since this is a natural league, all competitors are subject to urinalysis. Also, competitors that qualify for the pros also must also do a drug screening.

Bikini Categories

In the Bikini division:

  • You must wear two piece suit with clear heels - jewelry allowed
  • Three poses: front, side, and back
  • Take the stage twice: individual posing and then group comparisons

Follow the league on INSTAGRAM for more information and updates.
