In addition, the bodybuilding event will be a drug-free and drug-tested event to ensure the most level playing field for all of the athletes.
Preliminary stages of the 2021 competition were documented in the reality series, “Mr. America’s Gym. Eat. Repeat: The Road to Mr. America,” which gave an insider’s look at the physical and emotional impacts and challenges that each competitor experienced.
