Unofficial 2019 NPC National Contest Schedule

Here’s the 2019 schedule for National level shows/US Pro Qualifiers: NPC News Online.

I wasn’t able to find an easy list of NPC National Contests on NPC News Online, so here’s my unofficial compilation. Other than the Arnold Classic and Olympia Amateur,  which are open to all competitors, the other national contests require:

U.S. Citizenship for all except Bodybuilding (can be U.S. citizen or legal resident alien)
Top 2 in Open class at NPC National Qualifier; Top 5 at any national show.

Dates will be updated once released:
