  • CLASSIC PHYSIQUE - A NEW DIVISION FOR MEN

    Mens classic physique

    CROSSOVERS  ARE  ALLOWED!!

    CLASSIC MENS PHYSIQUE - So what's with this new division.  Well here's the details.  In Bodybuilding competitors are divided by weight classes.  In Physique competitors are divided by height.  In Classic Physique, you compete by weight and height.  So every athlete entering this division must make weight and height.

     

    Here is an example.  An athlete that is 5'6'' can enter Division A of classic physique IF they are also between 165.25lbs and 170lbs. A 5'6'' athlete that is under 165 lbs. cannot enter at all.   So in order to be in this division your weight must match up with your height.   ALSO - those entering Classic Physique can enter either the Novice or the Open or both, but they cannon enter any other Men's division.  No crossing over to bodybuilding or to regular physique.

     

    There are special posing trunks just for the Classic Physique division.  Click on the link below to find out more about them.

     

    If you register in Classic Physique and you are not able to make weight at the weigh-in we will help you change over to bodybuilding or regular physique.

    See the full rules and divisions on the NPC website.
