Fitness and figure competition
Most Fitness competitions consist of the swimsuit round and the routine round. In the swimsuit round, the competitors wear two-piece swimsuits or fitness bikinis and high-heeled shoes, presenting their perfect physiques for the judges and audience. Many of these competitions are broadcasted live in TV (ESPN or ESPN2), some examples are the Arnold Classic or the Fitness America Pageant.
Physique guidelines for fitness competitions typically suggest a proportional amount of female muscle mass; clear separations between muscle groups (but, no visible striations); and, leanness. The swimsuit must cover at least fifty percent of the gluteus maximus muscle; no micro thongs or G-strings are allowed. The routine round requires a physically active stage performance; most competitors attempt aerobic, dance, and/or gymnastic routines.
