Riviera Theatre PAC
Men’s Classic Physique
Posing & Judging Criteria
In this division an emphasis on symmetry and aesthetics will take priority over sheer size or an extreme conditioned / overly dieted appearance. The judges will be looking at the competitor’s overall symmetry with balance & proportion in all areas of the body. No one body part should overpower the rest of the physique.
The athlete should be well conditioned but not to the degree where muscle striations are evident.
Round 1: Quarter Turns
Round 2: Mandatory Poses. (Listed below)
• Front Bicep (any variation acceptable)
• Side Chest (any variation acceptable)
• Side intercostal (any variation acceptable)
• Back Bicep (any variation acceptable)
• Abdominal (any variation acceptable)
• Favorite Classic Pose (Exception Most Muscular) ie: victory, vacuum
Round 3: Individual Presentation
Competitors will perform a 60 second posing routine to music of their choice. Although this round is not scored, there will be a Best Posing / Presentation Award given to the Classic Physique Competitor who not only presents his physique to its fullest potential but also brings an energy and excitement to the stage. Confidence is key here along with displaying aesthetic muscularity & poised stage presence.
Shorter shorts or boxer briefs should be worn (shorts should show upper leg). See featured picture.
