Muscle Icon Posing Championships

Hosted By: Muscle Icon

Venue: Online

End Date (Final Submissions): September 26th, 2020

Welcome to Muscle Icon’s very first online posing contest! This contest will be open to all athletes interested in participation and will primarily focus on posing and stage presence. As important as it is to come in shape in this sport, posing is where athletes can really shine and set themselves apart from one another. A good posing routine takes an incredible amount of practice and is often the area most competitors feel they could have improved on by the time they made it on stage.

In this contest, competitors will be asked to film a routine in which stage presence and posing will be the primary focus of judging. Please note that this is not a traditional Bodybuilding contest. The same judging criteria cannot be applied to an online event as it is with in-person competitions, so this contest will be strictly focused on posing. Each submission will be evaluated by an official Muscle Icon Judge and narrowed down to a top 5. The top 5 will be reviewed and announced in a video format in which fans will be allowed to vote for their favorite and will count towards the overall Judging. The Winner will be announced October 3rd and receive the total sum of the entry fees as well as a free merchandise from Muscle Icon!
