Men's Physique competitors cannot compete in Bodybuilding divisions in the same show. Men's Physique consists of two parts: Group Comparisons and Individual Presentations. Boardshorts (shorts that come down to around the knee) are worn for both parts of the contest. Suits can be of any color and pattern.
Judging for Men's Physique is based on good leanness and definition with full muscularity, and good balance, proportion, and symmetry of both muscularity and conditioning.
Each class is brought to front center stage and is guided through quarter turns to display physiques from the front, left, back, and right.
The individual presentation portion is a stage walk. Competitors walk out to music to rear center stage and pause briefly in a stance of choice. Competitors then walk up to front center stage and perform quarter turns to show front, sides, and back views of their physique, then walk to one side of the stage and pause briefly in a stance of choice, then to the opposite side of the stage and pause briefly in a stance of choice, then to the front center of the stage and pause briefly in a stance of choice before exiting.
