COMPETITION CRITERIA

BODYBUILDING
1. The criteria used to judge a physique is based upon three equal aspects:
Symmetry, Muscularity, and Presentation.

Symmetry refers to the structural harmony of the physique relative to the size of various body parts. It can be defined as the proportional balance of opposite body parts. Symmetry does not refer to muscular mass but rather to a harmonious blend of all body parts to present a total aesthetically proportional developed physique. The judges do not grant points based on potential.
Muscularity Round- In this round the judges are looking at the size of the muscle in relation to skeletal structure, shape, hardness and definition. This includes the separation between individual muscles and muscle groups and striations within a muscle or muscle group. Muscle shape should be aesthetically pleasing and should demonstrate development from the belly out to the extremities.
PRESENTATION - The routine must be of artistic origin, athletic and demonstrate a degree of endurance, and may contain some of the mandatory poses. The routines are meant to give the judges some idea of the competitor's physical condition and abilities. It also gives the competitor the opportunity to express their creativity, personality and interests. Competitors are encouraged to include any talent or interest they may have such as dance, martial arts, jumping rope, baton, gymnastics, mine, aerobics, etc

SPORTS MODEL

We are not looking for the musculature of a bodybuilder or the low body fat level of a marathon runner. We want to choose a balanced physique. A physique that is highly photogenic and marketable.
