ITIS REALLY unfortunate to see a bodybuilder with a great physique, who has obviously paid his dues in the gym, posing beautifully onstage and then ruining the total effect because he has overlooked some detail of his presentation.

  • When you pose hold it for a while as Aronld use too do. Shredded all over needed improvement for glutes BUT posing routine is so bad paul dillet did same mistake on stage with posing routine.

  • The weight classes will go up for this division by at least 20lbs per weight class bet on it! the top 3 Mens physique competitors sadick, Jeremy and who ever are already at or ABOVE the weight for their height class… this class is supposed to be for the “Arnolds, Serge Nubrets, Shawn Ray” The old school beautiful classic lines.. So count on those weights  to go WAYYY up! If you guys remember what happened to mens physique it went from smaller guys to dudes that are fucking STACKED winning nationals and the shows. Another great video bro!

  • I am going to disagree. I think there are differences between the two divisions. In the examples you posted I wouldn’t describe any as examples of classic physiques. I think there are certain differences in proportions of body parts (exaggerated long head of tricep, thick calves, 1.5:1 shoulder to waist ratio… no one was even pulling a vaccum) I might have too high of standards for the class and I don’t want to take away anything from the guys, but those are my honest feelings. I suppose it’s just extremely rare to find an elite natural classic competitor.

  • +The Amazing Lucas, where do you optically discern this division going? How do you percieve anbolic steroids in this division? Do you visually perceive steroids arrising or none what so ever?

  • This is ridiculous!!! The IFBB needs to clean up its act and stop pushing competitirs into using steroids and other substances to attain physically and /biological aesthetic results. How many substances did these women have to take to look like this? Look at those lats! THIS IS NOT ATTRACTIVE!!!!!! What about the men and their swollen midsections?

  • Most men’s physique competitors will jump Sadik will dominate. I am 5’7″ cut off for A division weight cut off 170. Already have 170 lean body weight with no drugs. I would just have to stop enjoying my food for 3 months will give it a try.

  • The physique women and looking bigger and more muscular -almost like the defunct open Ms. Olympia division. Must be the protein shakes. http://www.soyouwanttobeafitnesstrainer.blogspot.com

  • Height should not have anything to do with bodybuilding well to a certain point, obv 4 foot 9 is to small but anyway the small guys never seem to win. Take a look at lee priest hes just a lil lawn gnome but hes absolutely ripped best arms in the business he actually beat ronnie coleman in Ronnie’s earlier years he should have been Mr.O at least once.

  • OMG, die Afrikanerin, die dritte von links, ist wunderschön: Was für breite Schultern ��(Ich wäre mit der Hälfte schon zufrieden…) und diese winzige schmale Taille�� Eigentlich hätte sie den Titel kriegen müssen��

  • Definitely agree with the thoughts here, but there’s one added aspect that I think you left out. Just looking back to when regular Physique was added in, on the natural side we definitely saw the bodybuilding classes take a huge hit. And for one big reason, there were no cross overs allowed between bodybuilding and physique. Where the classic class comes in, I think this could be the saving grace to the bodybuilding classes, at least on the amateur side, where guys may not feel confident enough to do well in open bodybuilding, they can not at least cross over and do both open bodybuilding, and classic physique. obviously more money for the promoters, but allowing that I think will be good for the sport, where as before I think the points you’re raising here held a lot stronger where guys couldn’t’ cross over, and we just saw more and more go into the physique class.
    But at the pro level, what you’re saying is definitely true. Along with the different posing they are adding in, the judging really needs to be on point in making a distinction in the type of look they are going for

  • Looked good. All of them. None of them looked like dudes.:) This is how Gal Gadot should have looked for Wonder Woman. Or half as good. And had some of these women do background roles. To be from her amazon tribe. None of them looked like these women…they SHOULD have IMHO. Maybe a few of these women can act. A few lines.:)

    They did years ago have Cory Everson do a role in JCVD’s Double Impact film. Perfect.

  • Hey you probably are already doing it but in case you are not why don’t you try putting a lot of tags and key words in your videos in order to get a lot more views

  • Look at the Nationals this year and look at the 95 Nationals here….the competitors are so much better. The field is deep. Hard, thick and conditioned. Now days….not so much.

  • Don long was smoking Tom Prince in this video,Tom Prince physique was flat in this video normally full, did not know Don was as bad as he was!

  • Funny. Tremendous effort to be the color of a tire and the body of a tyronasarues, and still wanting to remain with a white face. Such confusion in a human being……sad.

  • I completely agree with you on how classic should not over lap with natural bodybuilding itself. I think they should find COMPLETELY different ways to separate the two sections with posing, they have very little difference in posing, but they if they were to completely change the posing on both platforms, I could see classic staying.
