The IFBB wanted to create a division to enable male wheelchair users to compete in national and international events, including continental and World Championships.
Athletes train to develop all upper body parts and muscles to maximum size but remaining in balance and harmony, avoiding “weak points” or underdeveloped muscles.
Preparing for a competition, they decrease their body fat level and remove the underskin water to show the quality of muscles: density, separation and definition.
They display muscles during seven mandatory poses as well as the posing routine which lasts 60 seconds. The athletes perform all rounds seated on the wheelchairs, wearing long pants and sport shoes.
Currently, one open category is performed.
