                    Judging Criteria
The criteria used to judge a physique is based upon three equal aspects:

          (1) Symmetry, (2) Muscularity, and (3) Presentation

1. Symmetry:
Symmetry refers to the structural harmony of the physique relative to the size of the various body parts. Shape, proportion, detail, definition, and balance of each body part in relation to one another must give a cohesive whole and overall balance.


2. Muscularity:
Muscularity refers to the size of the muscles in relation to skeletal structure, shape, hardness, and definition. Separation between adjacent muscles, muscle groups, and striations within a muscle or muscle group are also considered in the judging process. Thin skin and low bodyfat, along with a lack of water retention enhance the muscular appearance.


3. Presentation:
Presentation is the effective display of the contestant's asset through posing ability, posture, projection, and carriage on stage. Skin tone, grooming, and posing outfit are a part of presentation. The selection of poses and their proper execution, the smoothness of transitions, and the coordinated selection of music all enhance the routine and presentation.
