Overall Physique Objective:
In this class the emphasis is symmetry and this will take priority in judging this class rather than size or extreme condition.

Symmetry: Structural Harmony
The Ideal physique will display an aesthetically proportioned muscular “X” frame silhouette, highlighted by a small waist.
