Three weeks ago, on July 27-28, we brought you all the on-stage action from the 2007 NPC USA Bodybuilding and Figure Championships in Las Vegas, Nevada. Typically, you don't get a look at what goes on behind the scenes at the contests. We're here to change that with two galleries that give a birds eye view of what takes place backstage.
In addition, we caught up with light-heavyweight winner Peter Putnam a few hours before the prejudging on Friday evening. Here, we'll give you a look at how one of the top bodybuilders in the amateur ranks prepared in the hours leading up to the prejudging. All photos are courtesy of FLEX photographer Kris Gethin.
