*scores will be sorted from high to low and highest scoring competitor will win
Musculature (22%) – the competitor should have large, full muscle bellies that sweep out from the skeletal frame.
Conditioning (22%) – there should be clear separation between muscle groups (ie: well defined abs, separation between shoulders and upper arms, separation between muscles of the quadriceps). Vascularity is acceptable.
Symmetry (22%) – there should be an aesthetically pleasing balance between the muscle groups
Confidence/Presentation (22%) – the competitor should exude charisma and confidence and poses should look natural. Hardcore posing (ie: strained face, tongue out, etc.) will not be scored well.
Structure (11%) – This refers to the muscular development of the body in relation to skeletal structure. For example the judges will look for wide shoulders that taper down to a small waist, upper arms that protrude out from the forearms and thighs that sweep out from the lower legs.
