  • MEN’S CLASSIC PHYSIQUE

1 ROUND – individual walk and quarter turns with 5 mandatory poses.  

The judging is scored 100% on both individual walk (with up to 8 poses in middle of the front stage) and quarter turns with 5 mandatory poses. The comparisons will consist of the quarter turns and the following 5 mandatory poses: 

  1.  Front double biceps
  2.  Side chest
  3.  Back double biceps
  4.  Abdominal and thighs
  5.  Favorite pose  

Who’s it for?

Competitors who take their muscularity beyond Men’s Physique, but not as far as Bodybuilding.
Classic Physique is the middle ground between bodybuilding and men’s physique. You are allowed to be dry and striation should be visible.

What Judges are looking for:

Muscularity (size), good definition (leanness) but not to the extreme, symmetry, and presentation (ability to display development during posing in the group comparisons). The targeted look is a little less extreme than in Men’s Bodybuilding.

You will be marked on:

  •  Muscularity (size) and symmetry
  •  Good definition (leanness)
  •  Muscle development
  •  Muscle conditioning and dryness
  •  Tan (if tan is evenly put on).
  •  How you pose & conduct yourself on stage. 
  •  Your quarter turns.
  •  Stage presence and overall appearance.

*Athletes do not need to bring music for their individual walk as Miami Pros’ DJ will provide the music.

Individual walk

Competitors will first walk individually into the centre of the stage, then walk to the front of the stage remaining in the middle of the stage. There you will do free style posing incorporating the 5 mandatory poses (front double biceps, side chest, back double biceps, abdominals and thighs) turning at each point (in your own style) to show off your physique to the Judges & photographers from multiple angles. This is your time to show off your individual personality and style.

Quarter turns

Once all competitors have done their individual walk the host will call out all competitors in a line to do quarter turns as a group. You will be asked to do 4 quarter turns and athletes may be called out in groups of 5-7 to be compared for placing by the Judges. Competitors should be staying tight, hard and maintaining good posture and flexing.

Swimwear details

Competitors must wear plain BLACK posing shorts. You are NOT to wear board shorts or bodybuilding trunks in this category. Any competitors wearing board shorts or bodybuilding posing trunks will be automatically marked down.
