Men’s Bodybuilding

Uniform – Posing trunks

The judges are looking for a well and evenly developed physique with detailed muscularity and separation between muscle groups. Overall pleasing structure with full muscle bellies wide shoulders and back, narrow waistline, full legs, and calves. Definition and striations are acceptable, but we do not reward an overdieted or a depleted look. The Athletes are judged on 5 different criteria which are Marketability, Aesthetic, Presentation, Physique, and Symmetry (MAPPS). Each criteria is scored 1-20 for a maximum score of 100. Prize money is paid to the overall category winner(s) based on the number of athletes in that category.
