MUSCLEMANIA® CLASSIC INTRODUCTION
Welcome to the Musclemania®! Celebrating its 33th Anniversary season, it has become the leader among natural bodybuilding events. With exclusive, live streaming broadcasts and international television coverage by ESPN International, Eurosport, TSN RDS Canada, Sky Sport Britain, Star Sport Asia and other worldwide networks, Musclemania® is more recognized than any other natural contest worldwide. And with this popularity, Musclemania® continues to expand throughout the world with regional and international events this year.
This season, Musclemania® Classic and Physique Divisions are available with ALL competitors submitting to Urinalysis Testing to ensure a 100% clean competition! The Musclemania® Classic Division is for competitors who want to display their complete physique in a classic, symmetry, beach body form. However, unlike Bodybuilding and Physique Divisions, the Classic Division features competitors wearing brief shorts while presenting themselves on stage in individual posing, class line-ups and comparisons. They will be judged based equally upon their Symmetry, Size, Muscle Condition and Presentation. The height classes will be determined after check-in at the show to ensure equal class sizes in the show. There are no limits to competitor weights regardless of height regardless how light or heavy the competitor.
- Musclemania® Classic Open
- Musclemania® Classic Junior (22 Years and younger)
Musclemania® Classic Professional (Prequalification required)
- Contestants must be at least 16 years of age
- Minor contestants must have written parental consent
Any natural athlete is welcome to compete in Musclemania® events regardless of competitive experience. Beginners, novices or veterans can compete in any regional, national and/or international events. But only Beginners and Novices can compete in designated shows. Veteran competitors may compete regardless of past or current bodybuilding federation affiliations.
JUDGING AND PERFORMANCES
Musclemania® Classic judging criteria is based upon four, equally scored categories:
- Symmetry 25%
- Muscle Mass 25%
- Condition 25%
- Posing & Presentation 25%
Professional spray tanning services are available at the show. Tanning creams are banned at Musclemania® shows.
DRUG TESTING CRITERIA
Because the Musclemania® Championships are natural bodybuilding events, all competitors will be subjected to urinalysis sampling at check-in at the show and/or at the competition. If a contestant tests positive for any listed banned substances, he/she will be disqualified from the competition, forfeit any prizes and/or rewards and be unable to compete in any Musclemania® event worldwide for at least 2 years. Also, if a contestant refuses to submit to drug testing or attempts to manipulate and/or alter a urinalysis sample, then he/she will be immediately disqualified from the competition.
