Figure athletes will have a more developed look than Bikini or fitness models with overall more muscle mass and development whilst having a very low body fat percentage. But not to the point where the athlete loses their figure and shape. This is not a female bodybuilding category and you should not have the same level as bulk as a bodybuilder but abs should be visible.

You will be marked on:

  • Muscularity
  • Balance of physique
  • Symmetry
  • Definition
  • Body fat
  • Stage presence
  • Quater turns
  • Comparisons

Mandatory Poses

  • Front Double Biceps
  • Front Lateral Spread
  • Side Chest (side at the choice of the competitor)
  • Side Triceps (side at the choice of the competitor)
  • Rear Double Biceps
  • Rear Lateral Spread
  • Abdominal and Thigh

Please Note:

Figure athletes must wear a figure suit and heels for the mandatory poses and 1/4 turns. Heels don’t need to be warn for the routine portion of this category.

You will then all come together for free posing, followed by a routine to music lasting no longer than 60 seconds.
