Tortured bodies, empty looks, people at the end of their power, expecting the end of the hardship they have chosen themselves – this is how the atmosphere behind the stage of the consecutive bodybuilding show could be described. This is not a story for the successful sportsmen, taking advantage over their competitors. This, rather, is a story about the tension, about the exhaustion (physical as well as mental) within several months, about the pain before hogging the limelight.
