Couples Work Together For Mixed Pairs Bodybuilding Competition

Bodybuilding competition is close to the same for men and women with many of the same poses and physique requirements for consideration. The big difference when it comes to mixed pairs bodybuilding, the length of free style in most competitions is two minutes as opposed to 90 seconds in singles competition.

It does require some rehearsal among the competitors as they will be posing together and will need to show some consistency in their routines. There is no such thing as a singles winner in mixed pairs bodybuilding competition and one member of the team does not perform well, the pair loses. It will take two excellent presentations to win. Despite the physique competition and the muscular presentation, if the pair posing event goes badly, so goes the entire event.

In many mixed pairs bodybuilding competitions the couple workout together, helping each other get into competitive shape. Their pairing in the mixed competition is not based on the luck of the draw and they train for months to compete together.
