When judging a figure competition the judges assess the athleticism of the physique. This is not a bodybuilding contest. A degree of muscularity with separation is desired, but not excessive muscle mass or visible striations. The muscle tone should appear firm but not excessively lean.
- The figure competitions provide alternatives for athletic women who (a) Train. (b) Do not wish to gain too much muscle size and vascularity and (c) do not have a strong gymnastic / dance background. All Figure competitors must have reached their eighteenth (18) birthday by the day of the contest. Workshop 1, 16 Weeks Out Contest Countdown Workshop.
- 1. CHECK-IN: Double Check your entry form for information concerning the location and time of check-ins. It is your responsibility to be on time.
- 2. NUMBERS: Your number should be pinned on the flat plane on your left hip; this way the judges will be able to see it clearly.
- At the morning prejudging all competitors will be judged in their (2) piece bikini and hi-heels.
- 3. COMPETITION ROUND: Contestants will be brought out in a line up in their 2-piece swimsuits with heels. You will be asked to either step forward individually or walk to the center of the stage, stop while facing the audience, then slowly do a series of ¼ turns so that the judges can see your physique from all angles. Proceed now to the back of the stage standing with the other athletes who preceded you on stage.
- Quarter turns for your entire class will be directed by the head judge. At this time, judges are assessing your overall physique for degree of athleticism, proportion and skin tone. The judges will be scoring the degree of athleticism by assessing the degree of firmness, symmetry, proportion and the overall physical appearance including complexion, poise and overall presentation.
- Next, the head judge may call you out by your number in groups for quarter turn comparisons. You may be called out several times to be compared with different competitors, so stay focused and S-M-I-L-E.
