The 2013 Gorilla Jack MABBA Provincial is finished for another year but not without the support of a lot of people and sponsors. I would like to start my thanks starting with Martin and Barry Pacak; owners of Gorilla Jack Supplements and MABBA's title sponsor again this year. Martin and Barry worked behind the scene with MABBA for the production of the posters, the morning and evening programs and the famous volunteer t-shirts that everyone loves to wear. I would like say thank you Martin, Barry and all the Gorilla Jack staff that unselfishly give up their time every year to work with MABBA…. your support does not go unnoticed. I would also like to say thank you to all our other sponsors that filled the lobby at Pantages Theatre to make our Provincials such a success MABBA looks forward to seeing you again for the Manitoba Amateur Bodybuilding Provincial Qualifier March 29th, 2014.
The second people that need to be thanked are the amazing volunteers that stepped up this year and made the 2013 Gorilla Jack MABBA Provincial work so smoothly. The weigh-in was the most organized weigh-in in years thanks to the volunteers helping. The Provincials always starts before most people are awake but there at Pantages Theatre at 6:30am were MABBA volunteers working to set up the tables, chairs and placing protective paper on the floors up and down stairs in the change areas. These people are not only there at 6:30am in the morning but a lot stay ALL day and worked behind the scenes at prejudging and in the evening at the finals (a very long day for all of us). Again to our fantastic volunteer base THANK YOU….. the show doesn't work without you.
I would also like to thank the staff from Pantages Theatre; both the front of house and the backstage staff who are there at 6:30am preparing the theatre for our show.

Definition: Women's physique division (herein referred to as "WP") has been created to give a platform for women who enjoy weight training, competing, contest preparation. Competitors should display a toned, athletic physique showcasing femininity, muscle tone, beauty/flow of physique.
WP will be judged on the following criteria:
- Symmetry, shape, proportion, muscle tone, poise and beauty flow
- physique assessment and comparison will take place during prejudging
Physique should display all of the above criteria without compromising femininity, beauty/flow of physique, etc.
The following are examples of common terms used in the bodybuilding industry. These words can be helpful to assess what should not be descriptive to the physiques being judged in WP:
I.E: Ripped, shredded, peeled, striated, dry, diced, hard, vascular, grainy, massive, thick, dense, etc.
While all types of physiques will be considered when it comes to height, weight, structure, etc. Excessive muscularity should be scored down accordingly.
WP should be judged as a standard between women's figure and womens bodybuilding.
Individual one minute routine with 10 second warning
Quarter turns, if warranted!
Mandatory posing comparisons/ callouts
Individual posing routine
- suits worn by wp competitors for prejudging must be a two piece. Suits do not have to be solid in color. The bottom of the suit must be v-shaped. No thongs are permitted. Competitors can compete in an off the rack suit. All suits must be in good taste.

- no heels may be worn at any time during the competition/judging of wp.
- Muscularity and Body Condition
Judges will be looking for fit contestants who display proper shape and symmetry combined with muscularity and overall condition. This is not a bodybuilding contest so extreme muscularity should be marked down.

Competitors will walk to the center of the stage alone and perform quarter (1/4) turns with optional pose of hand on hip or hand in pocket, face the judges as directed then proceed to the side of the stage.
