The screening process for the participants was done starting with Zomba, then Blantyre, Lilongwe and Mzuzu.
The body builders were tested by Ulaya himself and Darlingtone Ndasauka as judges on the following techniques; front and back double bicep, front and back lat spread, side triceps, front abdominal thigh, most muscular post and six pack post.
