Keshvari Meysam is 9 weeks out from the Amateur Olympia in Moscow -team King's Army
Not to say that some people are perfectly fine with not becoming professional. Look at the Asian bodybuilders who compete at the IFBB pro championships, especially the ones coming from rich countries. All of them are filthy rich, have amazing sponsorships and so on. It's more important for them to win a medal at the World Championships rather than doing some low tier pro contests.
I actually picked up a 2nd job just to pay for this hobby. I'm actually training for first show in April. It's is not cheap, I agree. It's more for pride for me instead of that medal. If I win awesome, if not then I can finally cross it off my bucket list.
