Professional and amateur tournaments are organized, in which the victory is awarded to the athletes with the best external data. In today's bodybuilding industry, a professional is commonly referred to as a bodybuilder who wins a qualifying event as an amateur and earns a Pro Card from the IFBB. Holders of this card get the right to participate in professional tournaments, for example, such as "Arnold Classic".
