Men's Classic

Men's Classic Bodybuilding is similar to Men's Bodybuilding but with certain limitations regarding the allowed bodyweight (muscle mass).

Men's Classic Bodybuilding is considered as a new discipline in response to the increasing demand for competitions for men who prefer, unlike bodybuilders, to develop a less muscular, yet athletic and aesthetically pleasing physique. In Men's Classic Bodybuilding the emphasis is placed on a muscular athletic-looking physique, assessed by comparisons of four quarter turns, 5 compulsory poses designed for physiques with less muscular body-mass compared to bodybuilders and athletic ability, assessed during a bodybuilder like routine.

The general idea of the concept - bodyweight limitation - is applied to all participants, who have been divided into three height categories:

Height Categories

The categories listed below are simply the categories available if needed

UP TO AND INCLUDING 168 CM CATEGORY:
maximum body weight = body height [cm] minus 100
(Example: A competitor, who is 168 cm tall, may weigh a maximum of 68 kg)
UP TO AND INCLUDING 171 CM CATEGORY:
maximum body weight = body height [cm] minus 100 + 2 kg
(Example: A competitor, who is 171 cm tall, may weigh a maximum of 73 kg)
UP TO AND INCLUDING 175 CM CATEGORY:
maximum body weight = body height [cm] minus 100 + 4 kg
(Example: A competitor, who is 175 cm tall, may weigh not more than 79 kg)
UP TO AND INCLUDING 180 CM CATEGORY:
maximum body weight = body height [cm] minus 100 + 6 kg
(Example: A competitor, who is 180 cm tall, may weigh not more than 86 kg)
OVER 180 CM CATEGORY 3 x height/weight :
(this category has 3 sub height/weight)
180.1 – 190 cm = body height [cm] minus 100 + 8 kg
(i.e. height 190 cm max. weight 90 + 8 = 98 kg)
190.1 – 198 cm = minus 100 + 9 kg
(i.e. height 198 cm max. weight 98 + 9 = 107 kg)
Over 198 cm = minus 100 + 10 kg
(i.e. height 202 cm max. weight 102 + 10 = 112 kg)
