» How will you introduce me at the finals?
Bodybuilders and Women’s Physique will be introduced as they come out for their routine. Figure, Bikini, and Men’s Physique competitors will be doing something different than the “clothes-hanger” that you see at most shows. Instead, our competitor introductions will be similar to the pro league. You’ll hit one pose at the back of the stage, two more at the front, and then exit the stage to the right (your right). Please hold each pose for only 2-3 seconds. We posted a diagram of the stage for you to review on Facebook, and we’ll also be going over this again at our competitor meeting.
