CLASSIC PHYSIQUE POSING CRITERIA

In this division an emphasis on symmetry and aesthetics will take priority over sheer size or an extreme conditioned / overly dieted appearance. The judges will be looking at the competitor’s overall symmetry with balance & proportion in all areas of the body. No one body part should overpower the rest of the physique.

The athlete should be well conditioned but not to the degree where muscle striations are evident.
