It was bronze body galore at the Ipoh Youth & Sports Complex, when heavily muscled men slathered in tanning oil struck poses in their posing trunks to vie for the coveted Mr. Perak 2017 title.
The recent state-level men’s bodybuilding championship was a full-day competition but due to time constraints, I was only able to stay for one category: Bina Badan Remaja (21 Tahun Ke Bawah), as seen from photos included in this post.
The other categories that were competed that day were:
Body Beautiful (above 170cm)
Body Beautiful (below 170cm)
Master (45 years and above)
New Talent (Open category)
Flyweight (under 60kg)
Lightweight (61 – 70kg)
Middleweight (71 – 80kg)
Heavyweight (81kg and above)
Champion of Champions
All the contestants had to go through a stringent selection process, where they had to perform seven mandatory poses.
The finalists for each weight category also had a freestyle routine. They should then individually make the best use of that time to fully portray their entire physique.
The audience was also treated to 90 seconds of posedown, where contestants once again tried to outdo one another with their various poses.
Trade booths were also set up, where bodybuilding and fitness related products were put up for sale. Enthusiasts could try out the equipment for themselves, or sample some of those supplements before making a purchase.

In the meantime, let us feast our eyes on some beautiful bodies.
