Any natural bodybuilder 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. However, bodybuilders residing in countries where Musclemania events are produced must qualify to compete in the America, Superbody and Universe Championships.  And, veteran competitors may compete regardless of past or current bodybuilding federation affiliations. Professionals from other federations must qualify by competing in the Open Mens Division.

Competitors who have won an overall division title at the Musclemania Universe may not compete in the same division again. Exceptions to this rule include the Women and Professional Divisions in which a competitor may win a specific competition title multiple times.

The process is rigorous and demanding, but with the sole intention of selecting who deserves to be a Musclemania Universe Finalist and Champion.

Musclemania judging criteria is based upon four, equally scored categories:

  • Symmetry 30%;
  • Muscle Mass 30%;
  • Condition 30%;
  • Posing Presentation 10% (Top 5 Finalists Only)

At the Finals all contestants will be introduced to the audience and participate in a Class Posedown. The Top 5 Finalists in each Division and/or Class will perform their individual posing routines. Routines are limited to 90 seconds.

Musclemania is known to be a world class stage event. This reputation is earned, in part, due to state-of-art audio system, provided by Digital Dolby. It is recommended that you take advantage of this available technology by having your music edited and dubbed by an audio technician. Only CD-R disc music will be accepted – do NOT use CD-RW or mini-CD discs. Music may NOT be provided on cassette.
