Top 10 Best Bodybuilders in India 2022

Bodybuilding in India is relatively lagging behind as compared to other sports in India but slowly and steadily it’s getting some recognization because of these top 10 best bodybuilders in India who work really hard in the gym and strive hard to bring this sport up in the spotlight as other sports in India.

India is well known for cricket but we have to salute these top bodybuilders who not only get fame and money in India but outside India also.

There are many bodybuilders in India but there are few bodybuilders who made India proud all over the world. So in this post, I am going to share the top 10 best bodybuilders in India and I hope that you will love this post for sure.

Before that, I would like to request our Indian government to support these Indian bodybuilders to help them excel in their field and brighten the name of India in international competitions and even Mr. Olympia.

There are also many young bodybuilders in India who don’t have that financial backup so that they can perform well in this sport because the prize money in Indian competition is less as compared to international competitions.

These Young Indian bodybuilders really have to struggle to take the necessary protein supplements along with other protein-rich foods. But gradually there has been a lot of improvement in this field and we have many bodybuilders who are doing an excellent job in International competitions.

This is a tribute to all the top and best Indian bodybuilders and I think that this post will spread the message to all the bodybuilding fans in India.
