Veteran competitors may compete regardless of past or current bodybuilding federation affiliations.
JUDGING AND PERFORMANCES
All contestants will be equally and fairly judged within their division and classes. This will include (1) the Spotlight Walk on stage and (2) a group line-up for quarter turns and mandatory & freestyle posing. Judges will be looking for fit contestants who display proper shape and symmetry combined with muscularity and overall condition. This is not a bodybuilding contest so extreme muscularity will scored down.
Musclemania Physique 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. Please check competitor services. 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.
