A category can only be run if there are not less than 6 athletes in this category. If less than 6 athletes, categories will be combined and run as one open class, if possible.

Athletes train to develop all body parts and muscles to maximum size but in balance and harmony. There should be no “weak points” or underdeveloped muscles. Moreover, they should follow a special pre-competition training cycle, to decrease the body fat level as low as possible and remove the under skin water to show the quality of muscles: density, separation and definition. Who can display more muscle details is scoring higher at the contest. And the other matter to be assessed is general view of the physique, which should be proportionally built. It means broad shoulders and narrow waist as well as adequately long legs and shorter upper body.

 

These qualities are displayed during two physique assessment rounds when competitors do 7 compulsory exercises during comparisons of 3 to 5 athletes proposed by the judges. Athletes perform barefoot, in posing trunks. There are 10 bodyweight categories for men: 60 kg, 65 kg; 70 kg; 75 kg; 80 kg; 85 kg; 90 kg; 95 kg, 100 kg and over 100 kg.


There is also a routine round when athletes can show their physique during 60-second free posing routine performed to the music of their choice. It is an attractive, artistic presentation, including compulsory and non-compulsory poses and other type of movements. There are three rounds. In each round each panel judge must put the competitors in order, giving them individual places from the first to the last.

It is aimed at men who do weight training, keep fit and eat a healthy balanced diet, but who prefer to develop a less muscular, yet athletic and aesthetically pleasing physique.

They are fit looking contestants who display proper shape and symmetry, combined with some muscularity and good overall condition.

The athletes should have stage presence and poise and their personality and ability to present themselves onstage with confidence, should be visible.

It is a version of bodybuilding for those male athletes who don’t want to develop their muscles to their “extreme” full potentials but prefer lighter “classic” physique.

Since muscle mass is limited, special attention is paid to the overall view of the physique, body proportions and lines, muscle shape and condition (density, body fat level, definition and details).

These values are assessed by the judges during Rounds 1 and 3.

In Round 2, like in bodybuilding, free posing routines are performed to music of athlete’s choice
