Here are the new weight classes for next year’s IFBB’s Classic Physique. Personally, I think its crazy. They should just do away with this division and have Open Building with the weight classes the NPC uses. What are your thoughts ?
This allows the Open to get bigger and Classic to really shine.
I don’t think this is wrong. I’m 6’3 and weighed 255 this morning with abs, and I’m a powerlifter. If I crossed over to bodybuilding and progressed to the pro level, getting down to 242 lean would be just right for this class.
I think its cluttered… Too many breakdowns and gets confusing. I like this simple NPC breakdown with 6 classes…
|Bantamweight||up to and including 143 ¼ lbs|
|Lightweight||over 143 ¼ lbs up to and including 154 ¼ lbs|
|Middleweight||over 154 ¼ lbs up to and including 176 ¼ lbs|
|Light-Heavyweight||over 176 ¼ lbs up to and including 198 ¼ lbs|
|Heavyweight||over 198 ¼ lbs up to and including 225 ¼ lbs|
|Super Heavyweight||over 225 ¼ lbs|
I mean that’s fine for amateurs.
It’s just a lot more straight forward than having a weight class for single height possible. That is ridiculous…LOL
