JUDGING CRITERIA

The judges will be looking for a combination of these objectives:

  • Looks – overall appearance, firm & tone body. (This category is for the beginner in bodybuilding and fitness)

  • Poise and General Impression – Overall grooming, personality, self-assurance, composure and carriage.

  • Muscle Tone & Definition – Overall Muscle tone with a low degree of muscle separation. The judges are not looking for muscle mass or “ripped to the bone,” extreme striations or the vascularity of a bodybuilder or a physique competitor. They are looking for shape and tone physique.

  • Symmetry & Proportion – Overall structural harmony of the physique. The upper and lower extremities should flow aesthetically when viewed from all sides creating a balanced and symmetrical appearance.

  • Overall look: Tone, Firm and Symmetrical body you would see at the beach.

Mr. Swimwear consists of two rounds, 

first round has two elements,   an individual stage walk and group comparisons. Competitors come out individually wearing beach shorts (or cargo shorts) with bare feet. They perform a stage walk with each competitor striking two ab poses – one pose showing the front abdominals and a second pose showing the side oblique’s – in their own time in the centre of the stage before walking off. The emphasis of the stage walk is to display confidence with your physique by presenting a self-assured stage presence and persona. Once all competitors have done their individual appearance the entire group is brought back on stage for group comparisons consisting of four (quarter) symmetry turns and the two abdominals poses.

second round – Suit –  an individual stage walk and group comparisons. Competitors come out individually wearing Suit (must compliment your physique). They perform a stage walk with each competitor striking poses in their own time in the centre of the stage before walking off. The emphasis of the stage walk is to display confidence with your physique by presenting a self-assured stage presence and persona. Once all competitors have done their individual appearance the entire group is brought back on stage for group comparisons consisting of four (quarter) symmetry poses.

To become a Mr. Swimwear International, the height requirements are between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall (183cm-189cm). Jacket should be a size 40 regular. Male models generally need a lean build, classic body; larger muscles in the arms and thighs are not desirable because they tend to pull the clothing. Clear skin and straight teeth are musts.

Then proceed walking across to the corner of stage-right and turn 180 degrees. Then proceed to the center stage, make 180 degree turn then exit the stage.
