DIFFRENCE BETWEEN MALE FITNESS & MUSCLE MODEL
This is a very important question that needs clarification because athletes need to have a clear criteria on what the judges will be looking for the day they step on stage.
The major difference between a Male Fitness Model and the Male Muscle Model division is primarily determined by the size of the athlete.
Athletes displaying particularly larger legs and overall larger muscular size would be more suited to the Male Muscle Model division.
ROUND 1 – BEACH WEAR
Competitors will do a T walk across the stage individually to pre-selected music by the ANB promoter. After completing your T-walk you will line up at the back of the stage until each competitor has finished. The Head Judge will then bring Athletes forward for Comparisons and quarter turns.
This may occur several times as judges may need extra time to make decisions.
Contestants will be asked to walk across the stage in their choice of Boardshorts.
Male Fitness Model divisions must keep posing very relaxed as it is not a body building division.
Male Fitness Models can use some body building poses as long as its kept to a minimum.
Ab and bicep posing are great for this division.
ROUND 1 & 2 T- WALK
Competitors will do a T-Walk across the stage individually to pre-selected music by the ANB Promoter.
Athletes will do 3 individual poses of choice at each point marked on the stage.
The idea is to look as though your having fun with each round displaying a bit of your personality
After completing your T-walk you will line up at the Enter point again until each competitor has finished.
Once all competitors are finished you will go back on the stage for your quarter turn comparisons.
Note: No moves of any sexual or erotic nature will be tolerated.
