During the comparisons of the Compulsory Poses, the judges look at the primary muscle group being displayed. The judges then survey the whole physique, starting from the head, and looking at every part of the physique in a downward sequence, beginning with general impressions, and looking for a symmetrical balanced development of all the muscle groups and definition. 


The downward survey takes in the head, neck, shoulders, chest, all the arm muscles, front of the trunk for pectorals, pec-delt tie-in, abdominals, waist and quads. 


The same procedure for back poses will also take in the upper and lower back, the gluteus group, the leg biceps, and calves. 


A detailed assessment of the various muscle groups should be made during the comparisons, at which time the judge compares muscle shape, density, and definition while still bearing in mind the competitor’s overall balanced development and femininity. 


The physique should be assessed as to the level of overall muscle tone, achieved through athletic endeavours. The muscle groups should have a round and firm appearance with a small amount of body fat. 


The assessment takes into consideration the tightness and tone of the skin. The skin tone should be smooth and healthy in appearance. 


The assessment of the athlete’s physique should include the athlete’s entire presentation, from the moment she walks onstage until the moment she walks offstage.  


At all times the competitor must be viewed with the emphasis of a “healthy, fit, athletic-looking muscular physique, in an attractively presented total package”. 


The posing routine is judged with a view towards the display of muscularity, definition, style and grace, personality, athletic coordination, and overall performance. 


The Judges are looking for a smooth, artistic, and well-choreographed routine. 


The judges are judging both the routine and the physique. 


The bikini can be of any colour and material.   

It should enhance the physique and compliment the skin tone.  

 The bottoms should cover some of the glutes and cover all the front area.   

No g strings allowed.
