Making a Bodybuilding Documentary!

Hey guys, I'm just in the pre-production stage of making a positive & upbeat Bodybuilding Documentary, with two local bodybuilders in there last few weeks of prep for an upcoming NABBA event in Northern Ireland. I'm a student  and in my final year of Moving Image, this will be my final project.
I will be interviewing and following these guys on the weeks of prep into the competition.
I want the interview questions to be about bodybuilding in general and not just personal questions towards the guys.  I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas of questions which will be positive and help kick the misconceptions of bodybuilding & bodybuilders.

    bodybuilding at that level isnt a positive thing in my opinion. The cons massively outweigh the pros when you are competing. Your body isnt physically meant to be in that state (Water depletion etc). So have fun getting positive answers. Look at the old arnie videos though like pumping iron

    Would it no be better to focus on 'honest' and 'accurate' rather than positive and upbeat? I think documentaries are always better when they don't start with any preconceptions or bias.

    I hear positive and upbeat mentioned regularly at my work. I think its in an effort to deny that things arent positive and upbeat. Probably better to try another approach.

    Its a tough one as there is a limit to what they will talk about.
    We've all heard BB'ers talking about their diet etc but everybody wants to hear the juicy stuff (no pun intended!).
