INBF Canada

Pro/Am Intercontinental & Western Naturals


General Event Outline

Here’s what you can expect at our shows.

Most Bodybuilding, Fitness, Figure and Bikini Events follow the same basic schedule. The first event of most competitions is the competitors meeting, the competitors meeting is mandatory and will help explain the flow of the show to all the competitors. They explain how the figure, bikini and men’s physique competitors should walk on stage, the mandatory poses they want from the bodybuilders, fit body and basic stage presence. They also explain the judging process, all-in-all it’s a run down on exactly what to expect during and from the show.

The next event is the show, which will be split up into pre-judging, consisting of all the competitors in a class/division entering the stage together, then the judges direct them through a series of poses, the head judge will rearrange the competitors to be compared better with each other. This is when the judges will rank each competitor and score them individually. After classes are complete, this will be followed by routines/awards, in which the competitors come back on stage and performs his/her routine and/or stage walk. Finally medals and placings are announced. At the very end there is usually an overall comparison and the winner will often be awarded a WNBF pro card.
