Palestinian men prepare before competing in a bodybuilding contest at Al-Aqsa University in Khan Younis, southern Gaza Strip, Tuesday, April 27, 2010. Many of the men use women's cosmetics, mud, or paint to enhance their muscles. Some 70 men from around the Gaza Strip competed Tuesday in the territory's bodybuilding championship. Participants say the Israeli-Egyptian blockade makes it harder for them to pump up and prevents them from participating in championships outside of the impoverished territory. Photo by Ashraf Amra
