Welcome to the Musclemania World Championships! Celebrating its 20th season, it has become the leader among natural bodybuilding events. With exclusive, international television coverage by ESPN International, TSN RDS Canada, Sky Sport Britain, Star Sport Asia and other worldwide networks, Musclemania is more recognized than any other natural contest worldwide. And with this popularity, Musclemania continues to expand throughout the world with regional and international events this year.
JUDGING AND PERFORMANCES
At the prejudging all contestants will be equally and fairly judged within their division and classes. This will include (1) an initial line-up, (2) mandatory poses and comparisons, (3) selected grouping comparisons and (4) individual posing routines. The process is rigorous and demanding, but with the sole intention of selecting who deserves to be a Musclemania Champion.
Musclemania judging criteria is based upon four, equally scored categories:
• Symmetry 25%;
• Muscle Mass 25%;
• Condition 25%;
• Posing Presentation 25% (Top 5 Finalists Only)
At the Finals all contestants will be introduced to the audience and participate in a Class Posedown. The Top 5 Finalists in each Division and/or Class will perform their individual posing routines. Routines are limited to 90 seconds.
Musclemania is known to be a world class stage event. This reputation is earned, in part, due to state-of-art audio system, provided by Digital Dolby. It is recommended that you take advantage of this available technology by having your music edited and dubbed by an audio technician. Only CD-R disc music will be accepted (do not use CD-RW discs). Music may NOT be provided on cassette.
Events on the Musclemania World Tour are open to any amateur natural bodybuilder. Whether you have past or present bodybuilding federation affiliations, are an independent athlete or a first timer, we invite you to compete against the best natural bodybuilders from throughout America and the world. There are divisions and weight classes for all bodybuilders including Open Men & Women, Novice, Masters, Grand Masters, Junior and Mixed Pairs.
PROFESSIONAL QUALIFYING SHOWS
The Musclemania Professional Division is an exclusive event to qualified natural bodybuilders.
Because Musclemania Pros are a respected group of the finest natural bodybuilders in the sport, qualification is challenging. Currently, athletes can qualify and earn their professional status only by winning selected events and/or weight classes. Professionals in other natural bodybuilding federations may qualify only by competing in Musclemania amateur or international events. Musclemania Professionals who subsequently compete in other federations will lose their MM Professional status and need to requalify at a Musclemania regional, national or international competition to regain their status.
Prizes awarded are a combination of cash and/or merchandise at the promoters discretion. Musclemania reserves the right to disqualify or deny entry to any contestant for any reason including, but not limited to, unsportsmanlike conduct, dangerous athletic skills and/or tardiness to any scheduled event or function.
