MEN´S Classic Physique

  • 1

    Since the inception of the Men’s Classic Physique division two years ago, the standard to wear was the Black Classic Physique Shorts. Over time we’ve heard you, the competitors, with suggestions and have previously followed through by both adding another height division from three to four and increasing the allowable weights for your height in both the NPC and IFBB Professional League. Probably the suggestion we’ve heard the most though is competitors wanting to compete in more traditional posing trunks that don’t cover the top of the thighs and hamstrings. Well you wanted “Classic” and now you are going to get “Classic”! Starting January 1, 2019, ALL Men’s Classic Physique competitors, both IFBB Pro and NPC, will be competing in Classic Physique Posing Trunks! Competitors are required to wear the same type of cut and all Classic Physique Posing Trunks that are worn in competition must be black and no less than 4‐1/2 Inches on the sides/hips. See the photo examples.
