Difference Between Figure Competition and Bikini Competition

Figure Competition vs Bikini Competition

The National Physique Committee of the USA, Inc., or the NPC, is the affiliate of the United States of America to the IFBB Professional League. This league holds different kinds of bodybuilding competitions which have been well celebrated and supported by many. A lot of people have dedicated their lives to joining these kinds of competitions because of the discipline and the training that it entails. There are different kinds of competitions in the league, and the two most popular would have to be the figure competition and the bikini competition. From the sounds of it, it seems as there is no clear difference between the two competitions which is why some people find it hard to differentiate between the two. It is better to define each competition to know just what exactly the big differences are between the two.

First off, women in the figure competition have very prominent muscles. Probably the most obvious difference between the figure and bikini competition bodies are the capped deltoids in the women of the figure competition. On the other hand, women in the bikini competition have less muscles than those of the figure competition. They have muscles but are more toned and in a softer look. Most of the women in the bikini competition have a great tan because it adds an effect to their bodies giving them more of an edge. The tan also helps in making the muscle tones more prominent under the very bright stage lights which are always a part of the competition nights.

There are two very big things that fail to be translated in the photos of bikini competitions. These are presentation and suit selection. Competitors in this division who opt to wear a suit meant for the figure division are very noticeable thus making these competitors seem out of place. Competitors should go with a fitted bikini or a custom-made one to avoid being compared to the figure division. Well-cut suits falling perfectly in the right spots make a very big difference. Of course, the presentation of a competitor to her body completes the whole package. Competitors who fail to present themselves well, even if their bodies are perfect, fail to win the competition.

To differentiate the two (bikini and figure competitions) even further and more clearly, figure competitions are all about the overall muscles. This division opts for a higher body fat than those of the bodybuilding division. Figure competitions also focus on the tightness and on the muscular aspects but less than that of the bodybuilding competition. The bikini competitions are all about looking good in a bikini with not so visible muscles and a higher body fat compared to that of the figure division. Their bodies are very well toned.

Figure competitions are for women who have a very athletic body alongside an appearance of someone muscular. There are three divisions in this competition: Open Division (No age bracket), Classic Division (35+ Years old) and Masters Division (45+ Years old). The Open division is divided into height classes which may be adjusted under the competitors’ registration to give a balanced distribution to all competitors.
