Classic Muscle (Classic Bodybuilding)


Classic Muscle is NFMUKs version of Classic Bodybuilding. Classic Muscle offers competitors to perform a routine while also going through the standard bodybuilding poses. The judges will be looking for the Classic look showcasing great symmetry, flowing physique and full muscles. Men’s Muscle competitors will also be able to compete in this class if they wish. Competitors will be judged on posing as well as physical appearance, in both, individual and comparison rounds. Both rounds will consist of quarter turns and mandatory poses.
