GBO SHAPE is a New division added to the 2019 season by the Global Bodybuilding
Organization.

*The SHAPE DIVISION attire: Two Piece Fashionable, Decorative Posing Suit, Clear High
Heels and Jewelry ( same as Women’s Beachbody)

*The SHAPE DIVISION Judging Criteria is based on presentation and individuality.

Competitor’s physique should display a firmness where the muscle bellies are slightly harder and rounder than seen in the Women’s Beachbody division (ie. larger legs/glutes development and a defined core ), but not display the wide shoulders, round delts and lat development of a figure competitor or the muscle separation, definition, low body fat levels, dryness or density that is displayed in our Classic and Standard Bodybuilding division.

*SHAPE competitors will be judged during mandatory rounds in Symmetry, Muscularity,
Conditioning and Stage Presentation. Assessing of the physique, judging criteria and rounds are the same as Women’s Beachbody. Vertical proportions (legs to upper body length) are one of the key factors. Horizontal proportions (hips and waist to shoulder width) may favor women with a bit bigger hips, thighs and buttocks.

*SHAPE competitors will perform a “Box Walk” during the presentation round and during the comparison round they will follow the Head Judge’s direction and execute front and back poses. Some shows may allow competitors to perform a 10-12 sec free posing routine.
