The 2024 Arnold Classic UK is now in the books, and proved to be a weekend to remember featuring the great and good from the worlds of bodybuilding, strength, and fitness. M&F was on the ground for this epic event and has your round-up.

This years’ Arnold UK took place between March 15 and 17 at the NEC in Birmingham with the six-time Mr Olympia winner and all-round legend making appearances across the whole weekend. The Terminator star took the time to train with fellow icons like Phil Heath and Jay Cutler, and met with the thousands of fans that had converged on this now essential bodybuilding and fitness event. It is, of course, a chance for competitors to qualify for the 2024 Mr Olympia and this year’s expo took place just two weeks removed from the Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio.

“How many conventions or expos can you go to, and while you’re walking around you can stay in shape, huh?” asked Schwarzenegger in an Instagram post that showed him working-out among the throngs of fitness enthusiasts in attendance. “Only at the Arnold’s Classic!”

The event featured the latest supplements, fitness tech, and even jousting, but all eyes were on the Men’s Open division in Birmingham, as the stage was set for an exciting rematch between 2024 Arnold Classic champion Hadi Choopan and hometown hero Samson Dauda.
