Classic Bodybuilders are judged on the OVERALL QUALITY of their muscular development; – Judging is based upon the presentation of:
Mass The perception of muscular size, has been the foundation for bodybuilding since the beginning of the sport. Yet, mass is only a merit when accompanied by the remaining qualities. Definition Indicates the degree of muscularity brought about by the
Absence of subcutaneous body fat. Defined muscularity is necessary to fully display the development of the physique.
Definition is only of value when it allows massively developed muscles to be displayed. Proportion Implies an even balance of muscular development in comparison to each muscle group. Theoretically, a “strong body part” can be just as detrimental as a “weak body part”. Bodybuilders must strive for equal development between all muscle groups.
Symmetry A misnomer, is commonly used to depict “proportion” or expressed to indicate an aesthetic quality throughout the physique. Although, in its strictest definition, symmetry denotes equal development of muscularity on both right and left sides of the physique.
Stage Presence Includes posing performance and other factors influencing general appearance such as skin tone, grooming, charisma, and poise. Effective stage presentation is essential to display the physique to its maximum potential.
Attire, athletes are required to wear suitably fitting trunks no restriction on colour or material / shorts or underwear are not permitted.
Quarter Turns: To the right as requested by the Judges chairman
Routine: Each competitor will perform a 60 sec routine judges will be looking for an engaging posing routine showcasing the individual’s physique. Lewd acts / explicit music is not permitted.
Comparisons: Competitors will be judged on any one favorite pose at front, left side, back and finally right side. Judges may also request quarter turns during the call out / comparison rounds.
Pose-down & Awards – All athletes will be asked to perform 30 seconds of free posing – then assemble in a line at back of stage for placement awards. (This may take place after preliminary rounds of another class.)

Front, Back And Sides Lineup
All competitors will present on stage in numerical order facing the judges. The head judge will call heels together facing the front. A series of quarter turns will follow. Competitors will be viewed from the left side, from the back, from the right side and from the front. Twisting is preferred on the left and right sides. Judging will be based on overall symmetry shape and muscle definition.
This discipline will require judges to evaluate standards of symmetry, proportion, muscular development and condition, posture and general deportment, in a RELAXED State.
Overall symmetry, muscular development and condition will be preferred to competitors with ´exceptional´ or ´sensational´ development areas which don´t come together in the form of overall symmetry or competitors with an imbalance in their physical make-up.
Competitors should remember this discipline in the first view the judges have of their physiques. By this stage all the serious training is over – so arguably posture and general deportment are the most important items on their list.
This discipline will afford judges the opportunity to extend their assessment of individual Competitors.
The time allocation for each competitor will be 60 seconds (1 1/2 minutes) max.
In case of a high quantity of competitors the Chief Judge can decide for 1 minute posing time during the pre-judging.
Judges will be looking for tone, shape and quality of individual and collective muscle groups. Presentation will also be an important consideration, but the main criteria for selection and placing will be symmetry, proportion, muscular development and condition
Arguably the most important discipline of all. Eight compulsory comparisons poses which allow the judges to assess selected competitors against each other.
