Bodybuilding Divisions will be judged through a series of poses that will allow the judges to evaluate not only individual body parts but also the “whole package.”
Athletes are judged in two rounds:
- Symmetry encompasses overall balance and conditioning.
- Muscularity and conditioning judges mass, definition, and proportion.
ROUND 1 – SYMMETRY
Symmetry encompasses overall balance and conditioning from top to bottom.
ROUND 2 – MUSCULARITY/CONDITIONING
Athletes will be judged on conditioning by executing a series of mandatory poses. Competitors must perform all mandatory poses in a timely manner. Remember, every time a pose is called for the judges are looking at the complete package from top to bottom, not just that body part. Note: The Head Judge at all events reserves the right to penalise an athlete one point for each pose if the athlete refuses to perform the requested poses properly. The athlete will be given a warning to correctly perform the pose and if the judge’s request is ignored, a penalty assessed to their placement for each improper pose. Athletes will perform only the poses requested by the Head Judge or face the same penalty.
- Bodybuilding Posing Suit
Judges will score each round and give them a final placement for that round before moving on to the next round.
Example: if there are 8 people in the class the judges will placement them 1st thru 8th place in each round. When the judges are done they will add the (2) scores together to come up with the final placements for each competitor in that class.
