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%

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 Top 5 Finalists’ samples will be tested. 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.
