COMPETITION ROUNDS & RULES
ROUND 1/PHYSIQUE: Contestants wear either runners or biker shorts ( no posing suits) along with athletic shoes and socks. All contestants will be brought out individually for four quarter turns at center stage and then repeating the quarter turns in a line-up with the other contestants.

ROUND 2/STRENGTH: The Strength Round consists of two exercises - Chin-Ups and Push-Ups. Contestants will be brought out individually in numerical order. While a fitness outfit is recommended, the costume/apparel will not be part of the judges' decision. Shoes are not required for this round. A time limit of one (1) minute for each event per individual has been set. The contestants will be judged on how many correctly executed Chin-Ups and Push-Ups accomplished in the 1 minute time period. Effort must be continuous with no resting.

PUSH-UPS : A line of tape will be placed on the stage and each contestant's toes shall remain behind the line. Contestants will face the audience. A correctly executed Push-Up consists of full extension of the arms at the top and down to touching the chest to the stage. After the rankings are determined for both exercises, each contestant's scores will be added together for one placement for this round.
