Classic Physique is for male competitors who want to take their muscularity and size beyond the limits of Men’s Physique, but not quite to the extremes of Bodybuilding. Classic Physique will highlight proportion, symmetry, pleasing lines, and a small waist. In short, the focus will be on aesthetic qualities in harmony with muscularity and condition.
