DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MALE FITNESS & MUSCLE MODEL
This is a very important question that needs clarification because athletes need to have a clear criteria on 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- COMPULSORY POSES
Athletes will do five compulsory poses consisting of-
Front Double Bicep
This may occur several times as judges may need extra time to make decisions.
Swimwear must include short style shorts ie Aussie Bum or Calvin Klein
ROUND 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.
STEP BY STEP T-WALK INSTRUCTIONS
- Enter the stage and walk directly to the middle rear of the stage and pose at point 1.
- After posing at point 1. walk to the front middle of the stage and pose at point 2.
- Following point 2, keep to the front of the stage and walk to the (left) and pose at point 3.
- Then walk in the same line to the opposite side of the stage (right) and pose at point 4.
(Note: You are still being judged while you waiting here in your line-up so please ensure you continue to pose)
