For those who have never experienced a bodybuilding event before – this is a fantastic opportunity to learn what it’s all about. As well as an elite line-up BodyPower have also confirmed that legendary 5x Mr. Olympia and current champ Phil ‘The Gift’ Heath will be performing a guest posing routine in what is an incredible coup for the event. It will also see a return to the stage for British IFBB Pro Daz Ball. Having undergone an extremely tough 18 months in which he was diagnosed with acute kidney failure, resulting in a kidney transplant. We very much look forward to supporting Daz on his first official guest pose back on an IFBB Pro stage.
Competitors in a bodybuilding event train to develop all bodyparts and muscles to maximum size, showcasing a physique with definition and balance. There should be no “weak points” or underdeveloped muscles and the athletes follow a pre-competition training cycle to decrease their bodyfat levels as low as possible to remove the underskin water and show the quality of muscular density, separation and definition.
These qualities are displayed during two physique assessment rounds when competitors do 7 compulsory exercises during comparisons of 3 to 5 athletes proposed by the judges.
There is also a routine round when athletes can show their physique during 60-second free posing routine performed to the music of their choice.
