For the first time in Guyana’s history a Men’s Physique exhibition will hit the National Senior Championship stage.

For those who are not in the know, Men’s Physique is a new class that burst on to the international bodybuilding scene in 2011, some are even calling it the new bodybuilding.

According to ifbb.com , Men’s Physique is defined as a category aimed at men who prefer to develop a less muscular, yet athletic and aesthetically pleasing physique. For a Men’s Physique competition, judges look for a fit contestant who displays proper shape and symmetry combined with muscularity and overall condition. Aesthetics is key unlike hardcore bodybuilding where extreme muscularity and mass are advantageous.

Unlike the bodybuilding shows where you see competitors wearing posing briefs, in Men’s Physique, the athletes don board shorts just above the knee in length and one inch below the belly button.

President of the Guyana Amateur Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation (GABBFF), Keavon Bess recently told this publication that Saturday’s exhibition is the dress rehearsal for Men’s Physique competitions to come since it is now a category at the CAC championships.

Saturday’s show starts at 19:00hrs and admission cost $1500.
