2023 Arnold Basic Outcomes – Break Muscle

Competitors took the stage at one of the biggest bodybuilding shows of the year.

The Arnold Classic is one of the most notable competitions on the bodybuilding calendar. Held annually for more than 30 years, it takes its name from the event’s co-founder and undoubtedly the most popular bodybuilder of all time – Arnold Schwarzenegger.

While the Men’s Open division is often considered the primary bodybuilding event, several divisions have been added over the years. From men’s physique to women’s wellness, top-level competitors make the Arnold Classic a high priority in their competitive season.

The 2023 competition is adding even more excitement to the men’s Open division after organizers increased the prize money awarded by 50% over the previous year. The champion will now take home $300,000 along with one of the sport’s most prestigious titles.
