Judging Criteria
The judges will be looking for a combination of these objectives:
The criteria used to judge a physique is based upon three equal aspects: Symmetry, Muscularity, and Definition.
Symmetry Round: Competitors will present themselves on stage in serial order in a straight line or curve facing the judges, assuming a semi-relaxed stance with ankles close. The head judge will instruct the group to execute a series of quarter turns to the right allowing the judges to view them from the front, left side, back and right side before returning to the front position. 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: Competitors will present themselves on stage in serial order in a straight line or curve facing the judges, assuming a semi-relaxed stance with ankles touching.  After the initial comparisons are complete the head judge may shift the position of the competitors to conduct additional comparisons. 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. The poses are: A) Front Double Biceps; B) Front Lat Spread; C) Abdominal & thigh Pose; D) Side Chest; E) Side Triceps; F) Rear Double Biceps; G) Rear Lat Spread;

Judging Criteria
The judges will be looking for a combination of these objectives:
1.The criteria used to judge a physique is based upon three equal aspects: Symmetry, Muscularity, and Definition.
Symmetry Round: Competitors will present themselves on stage in serial order in a straight line or curve facing the judges, assuming a semi-relaxed stance with heels close. The head judge will instruct the group to execute a series of quarter turns to the right allowing the judges to view them from the front, left side, back and right side before returning to the front position. 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: Competitors will present themselves on stage in serial order in a straight line or curve facing the judges, assuming a semi-relaxed stance with heels close. The head judge will instruct the group to execute a series of ten (9) mandatory displays giving the competitors a sufficient amount of time to hold the poses for the judges and to rest between each pose. After the initial comparisons are complete the head judge may shift the position of the competitors to conduct additional comparisons. 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. The poses are: A) Front Double Biceps; B) Front Lat Spread; C) Abdominal & thigh Pose; D) Side Chest; E) Side Triceps; F) Rear Double Biceps; G) Rear Lat Spread; H) Hand-on Hips Most Muscular; I) Most Muscular – Crab.
Optional posing routine for a maximum of 60 seconds with music to display their physique, physical conditioning, personality, and overall presentation.  While posing routines are not compulsory, judges can use a routine to separate close placings.
If the division has more than one class the winners of each class will be compared in the same fashion as Pre-judging to determine the Overall Winner.
