UPDATE - 2017 NPC MEN’S CLASSIC PHYSIQUE

After NPC's review of the number of competitors entered during the first year of Men’s Classic Physique, the numbers grew exponentially as the year progressed to the point that they have decided to add an additional height class to the IFBB North American Championships Open Men’s Classic Physique and the NPC National Championships Men’s Classic Physique. This is mandatory for both of these competitions. 


All other NPC national competitions and regional and state contests will have the option to offer 4 height classes or to stay with the 2 or 3 height classes they are currently using.
