Posing Attire for Women’s Physique Class

It has recently come to the attention of the CBBF Executive that there has been some confusion on the rules regarding posing attire for Women’s Physique.
This is not a rule change that was recently implemented. This rule was in place last year for our 2015 CBBF National Events. We do understand that style evolves and suits can change drastically from year to year.

The CBBF proactively made the decision last year to limit connectors on Women’s physique suits to eliminate the possibility of suit malfunction for the athletes. Straps holding the top together or straps holding the bottoms together being constructed primarily of connectors have a higher chance of breaking in a Women’s Physique posing routine than on a bikini athlete as their posing has far less movement than a 60 second posing routine.

The following rule will be implemented for our 2016 Figure Fitness Physique event:

DETACHABLE CONNECTORS FOR WOMEN’S PHYSIQUE ARE NOT ALLOWED

  • Connectors that are stitched to the fabric of the suit are allowed.
  • Connectors that are not stitched to the fabric of the suit will be disallowed.

** THE RULE IS TO MINIMIZE SUIT MALFUNCTIONS DURING POSING ROUTINE **

We apologize for any confusion that may have been caused to the athletes.

Sincerely,

Georgina Dunnington
CBBF Chairperson

Category Crossovers (Bodybuilding/Classic)

We have recently discussed the parameters around some of the classes and one item that came up was crossovers between the new classic physique class and open bodybuilding and “Will the CBBF allow athletes to cross over between the two classes?”.

In the past we did not have consistency on this rule as we did allow classic bodybuilding and open bodybuilding athletes to cross over between the disciplines at the IFBB event qualifier. Effective immediately and including the 2016 events we will not allow crossovers at any of the CBBF National events including the IFBB event qualifier.

One of the most compelling reasons is athlete ability to have an opportunity to become a part of the World Team. With allowing crossovers in past we have had cases where the same athlete wins both disciplines and if for some reason, such as in 2014 when such winner was disqualified, it did not allow an athlete from either discipline to participate on Team Canada.
