PCA USA Men's Categories include:
Masters and Juniors are offered for Bodybuilding and Physique. Bodybuilding can be broken down into 4 height categories (Mr Class 1 - 4), Masters and Juniors, Novice, First Timers, and DisAbled (co-ed).
Master's athletes must be above a certain age, depending on the show. It is normally 40 and older or 50 and over. Juniors athletes are competitors that are 23 or younger.
A Novice is a competitor that has not won their class. A First-Timer is an athlete that has never stepped on any bodybuilding stage, for any bodybuilding association, prior to their first show.
Keep in mind that PCA USA does not allow crossovers. A competitor cannot compete in both Physique and a Mr. Class. But, a competitor COULD compete in a Mr. Class and a Juniors/Masters class (depending on age).
