Women’s Physique consists of two parts: Group Comparisons and Individual Presentations. Competitors wear two-piece suits for both rounds. Suits can include designs, patterns and/or adornments. Shoes are not worn. Jewelry is permitted. Competitors cannot compete in Figure or Bikini in the same show.
Scoring is based on muscular development, leanness, symmetry, and presentation.
During group comparisons competitors will be directed through a series of poses that can consist of any of the following:
-Front Double Biceps with open hands and One Leg Extended
-Side Triceps with Front Leg extended
-Side Chest with Arms Extended and Front Leg Extended
-Back Double Biceps with Open Hands and One Heel Spiked
-Hands Over Head Ab with One Leg Extended
-Side Serratus (optional callout)
Competitors individually perform a posing routine to music. The individual routine is not factored into scoring but does count toward consideration for Best Poser awards when offered.
