Mr Physique Judging Criteria
The Side Chest and Triceps poses may be performed by either side but may be required by the Judges to pose both sides so contestants are encouraged to practice both sides.
Judges will have the opportunity to compare competitors against each other in quarter turns and in their mandatory poses.
The concept of Mens Physique is to express a more athleticaly built physique than the bulky mass of bodybuilding.
Board shorts MUST ALWAYS be worn.
NO Front or Rear Lat Spreads and NO Most Muscular poses of any kind during mandatorys
Round 2: Mandatory Posing
The contestants will then be asked by the Head Judge to perform the Mandatory poses:
1/ Front Double Biceps
2/ Side Chest Pose
3/ Rear Double Biceps
4/ Triceps Pose
5/ Oblique Abdominal Pose.
Mr Physique is for those athletes who have a lean athletic build with excellent body conditioning, good muscularity & symmetry
Fit & Athletic Physique - Not the bulky mass of a bodybuilder.
Judges will be looking for fit and athletic contestants who display the proper shape and symmetry combined with muscularity and overall condition. This is not a bodybuilding contest so extreme muscularity size will be marked down.
Round 1: Stage Presence and Personality
Competitors will be asked to walk on stage individually in beach boardshorts (shorts must be just above the knee in length and below the belly button, no spandex and no logos are permitted on the beach boardshorts but a manufacturers logo such as Body Glove symbol or Quicksilver are acceptable.)
No shirts and no shoes or sandals will be allowed to be worn onstage.
No lewd acts allowed; for example the moon pose or gang signs.
Judges are looking for the contestant with the best stage presence and poise who can successfully convey his personality to the audience.
Contestants are introduced individually and they will each walk to Centre Rear Stage, walk to front Centre Stage, walk to Stage Left, Turn and walk to stage right and form a line.
Once all contestants have performed their stage walk they will be directed by the Head Judge to form a line across the front of the stage. The Head Judge will then direct them to perform quarter turns.
