Physique competitions are measuring your level of muscularity, leanness (conditioning), and symmetry. Within a typical bodybuilding/physique show, there will be multiple categories that based on different severities of these measures. Here’s a breakdown of the typical categories for the females, going from most stringent physically to least:Bodybuilding (BB).
Very similar to the Figure category but even more emphasis on having a mainstream look with a specific goal of being marketable. These ladies are more showy with model walks, themewear rounds in sportswear or costume, and points scored for personality and showmanship. A model look facially also will score points here. Abs are required.Bikini.
This is what I called the Maxim or any menā€™s magazine pin up look. These ladies are in fantastic shape as well, they are lean, toned, tight but without significant muscle mass.
Bikini is usually the category that I compete in North America while in Europe I could also do Fitness Model and regional figure successfully. The Euro natural scene is a lighter aesthetic than North America; good for me, then I can eat more carbs! When I go to the States, Iā€™m always amazed at the amount of muscle that the girls will carryā€¦ impressive yet intimidating if Iā€™m competing against them.
