How To Watch The 2022 Arnold Classic

Taking place in Columbus, Ohio from March 3-6, the 34th annual 2022 Arnold Classic will see a field of bodybuilders battle it out and this year’s contest will be held over two nights for the first time in the show’s history. This article will serve as a complete breakdown for this year’s Arnold Classic show. 

The 2022 Arnold Classic Prejudging is scheduled for Friday, March 4, 2022, from 7-9:30 p.m. EST at the Battelle Grand Ballroom in the Columbus Convention Center. The finals will occur the following evening from 7-9 p.m. EST.

Bodybuilders will gather on an international scale and vie for gold at the Battelle Grand Ballroom of the Greater Columbus Convention Center, Ohio. Earlier this year, the show attracted plenty of attention after announcing that Classic Physique would see a dramatic increase in prize money from $6,000 to $60,000. The show will be one to remember, and there are plenty of top bodybuilders in Men’s Open and Classic Physique that have fans quite excited for the show. 

Returning 2019 Arnold champ, Brandon Curry will participate at the show and has a chip on his shoulder after scoring runner-up at Olympia back-to-back years. 2020 Arnold Classic winner William Bonac will also be looking to re-establish himself as one of the best in the world. 2021 Arnold Classic champ, Nick Walker has decided to focus on improving his physique for 2022 Mr. Olympia instead of trying to defend his Arnold title. Meanwhile, defending Arnold Classic Physique champion Terrence Ruffin is also a big favorite heading into the second biggest show of the year.
