How much will each ranked bodybuilder get (1)

The Arnold Classic 2023 is set to begin on March 3 in Columbus, Ohio. There will be two phases to the competition. The first will be pre-judging on March 3 and the second will be finals on March 4.

Seven-time Mr. Olympia and co-founder of the Arnold Sports Festival (ASF), Arnold Schwarzenegger, declared that the 2023 Arnold Classic USA champion will earn $300,000. It is a 50 percent increase over Brandon Curry's $200,000 prize from 2022.

The prize money has grown dramatically for the second consecutive year. The 2021 winner, Nick Walker, won $130,000. That was the standard prize amount from several years prior. The awards were revealed on Arnold Sports' Instagram page and in a press release.
