Back to IFBB Disciplines

The women’s physique division was introduced at the beginning of 2013 for women who want to prepare for a heavier, bodybuilding-style body but who do not want to be extremely dried, lean and muscular. Competitors want to remain athletic and aesthetically pleasing.

There are three rounds. In round one - the semi-finals - competitors’ physiques and muscularity are assessed during quarter turns and four compulsory poses. 

In the finals compulsory poses and the posedown are performed in round two and a short, 30-second posing routine to music of competitor’s choice in round three.

There are two categories in this division: up to 163cm and over 163cm.
