• Excellent Body Conditioning, Good Muscularity & Symmetry.
• Fit & Athletic Physique - Not the bulky mass of a bodybuilder.

Judges will be looking for fit and athletic contestants who display the proper shape and symmetry combined with muscularity and overall condition. This is not a bodybuilding contest so extreme muscularity size will be marked down.

• Stage Presence and Personality

Competitors will be asked to walk on stage in shorts. No shirts and no shoes or sandals will be allowed to be worn onstage. No lewd acts allowed; for example the moon pose or gang signs. Judges are looking for the contestant with the best stage presence and poise who can successfully convey his personality to the audience.


Comparison Round:

• The competitors will walk on stage in a group and be directed to do quarter turns by the Head Judge and then proceed to a series of mandatory poses.

1) Front Double Biceps
2) Hands behind the head Abdominals
3) Side Chest
4) Side Triceps
5) Rear Double Biceps

Judges will have the opportunity to compare competitors against each other in quarter turns and in their mandatory poses. The concept of Men’s Physique is to express a more athletic built physique than the bulky mass in bodybuilding.

Such as:

• Shorts MUST ALWAYS be worn.
• NO Front or Rear Lat Spreads and NO Most Muscular poses of any kind during Mandatory’s



Promoters can choose to have height classes based on numbers:

• Under 170cm
