NPA Trained Figure

Hey !
Just wondering if there are any girls here that compete in the trained figure class with the NPA?
 
If so... does anyone have any examples of the compulsory poses required ? I've googled it and so far found mostly side chest pictures! I would like an idea of foot positions and other poses.
 
Thanks xx

    I do...

    We do relaxed quarter turns in shoes for round 1; front dbl biceps, front lat, side chest, rear dbl biceps, rear lat and a pose of your choice for round 2; then routine for round 3 :-)

    NPA don't have "trained" figure as such like Nabba. It's just one class of figure and physique, although the figure class is called "trained figure".
     
    http://www.npabodybuilding.com/EntryForms.aspx
     
    Ladies Trained Figure.

    The Trained Figure competitor should show a toned, balanced, shapely body, with aesthetic qualities, exhibiting signs of training with weights whilst always retaining her femininity. The muscle groups should be round and firm in appearance, and the body should have a small amount of body fat, neither being too muscular or too lean. The competitor should be free of deep muscular separation and striations. The skin should be of a smooth and healthy appearance. Poses displaying muscularity are not allowed. Although females are free to compete in whatever class they wish, competitors displaying excessive muscularity and condition will be marked down in the Figure class.

    Round One – Symmetry, Balance and Proportion.

    Semi-relaxed quarter turns round. Front, back, and side stances.

    Judges are looking for the best combination of shape, symmetry, balance and proportion, with aesthetic qualities. Feet must be kept flat to the floor.

    Excessive twisting is not permitted.

    Round Two – Shape and Tone.

    Seven compulsory poses which are;

    1 - front double biceps; 2 – front lat-spread; 3 – side-chest (either side); 4 – back double biceps; 5 – back lat spread; 6 & 7 – any 2 front or side poses of your choice.

    Poses 1, 3, and 4 must be demonstrated with open hands.

    Competitors will be instructed to do Round 2 immediately following Round 1. Each call-out will see the called athlete do the quarter turns and then the compulsory poses, and on completion of both rounds, will then be asked to return to the line-up. Judges will then mark both rounds individually on the sheet.
    COSTUMES WORN FOR ROUNDS ONE AND TWO MUST BE OF A PLAIN, SINGLE COLOURED, NON-REFLECTIVE MATERIAL. AS OF THE 2009 SEASON, THIS RULE WILL BE ENFORCED WITHOUT EXCEPTION. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE COMPETITOR TO ENSURE THAT THEY HAVE THE CORRECT ATTIRE PRIOR TO COMPETITION.

    Round Three.

    Free posing round. At all N.P.A. competitions, posing shall be of 90 seconds maximum duration at qualifying contests, and 60 seconds at the British Final. Competitors are encouraged to display their figure to the best of their abilities. Gymnastic moves are optional but will not be marked up above any orthodox posing. The posing round is to display a competitors’ figure to the best of the competitors’ ability – it is not a round that will be judged on athletic or gymnastic prowess.
    Miss Figure competitors shall wear shoes in rounds one and two, but these are optional in round three.
    In the Men’s classes, if a class has one entrant, he will be instructed to go on-stage with the next class, although he will not be judged against those in that respective class.
    Female competitors have the option of wearing thong-type costumes.
    Female jewellery is restricted to one pair of stud ear-rings, and wedding ring, with male jewellery restricted to wedding ring only.

    In the quarter turns it's feet together for side stance, not sure for front and rear to be honest. Maybe Flick can enlighten us on that. You planning on a show yourself or are you helping someone?

    Feet flat on the floor, heels together, toes can be pointing outwards. If you've got a strict MC such as Michael Phillips or Lee Kemp, they will enforce this rule as necessary, as was done at the finals :-)
