Q.I am new to Figure competitions and will be competing in my very first event as a Novice Competitor and was wondering if we are required to perform a routine?
As of 2015 routines have been removed from all Bodybuilding and Figure Divisions and therefore no routines are required. All Bodybuilding and Figure divisions will only comprise of Rounds 1 and 2 ( Compulsory Posing Round and Symmetry Round) and will be judged on these two rounds alone.
In the compulsory posing round do women wear their heels? Or is that just for quarter turns?
A: In both the compulsory and symmetry rounds in the Figure categories women are required to wear heels for both rounds.
