Classic Physique, the future of bodybuilding? | IFBB New York Pro



While some with sadness and sorrow in their eyes watching old photos of Frank Zane, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Franco Columbua and other greats, comparing them to those on what is today’s bodybuilding fallen, others try to find a way to restore the lost beauty of the construction of the human body.

Indeed, if we left in chronological order by analyzing the winner of the Mr. Olympia, as the best of the best in the world, could easily come to the conclusion that what was considered a perfect human body, began to die out after 1992 and the massive victory of Dorian Yates.

This was recognized by the organizers of big events, which will this year at the largest gathering repertoire include the category Classic Physique, which aims precisely at such – the legendary appearance of the body.

Category that is already attracting a lot of attention, and that its beauty could largely take away the attention of the standard bodybuilding heavyweight.

In this light, we present an overview of participants at one of the first major competition PRO Men’s Classic Physique category, which will happen on stage in 2016 IFBB New York Pro.

At the competition, the nine names registered with PRO licenses, and they are: Axel Alvarez Jr., Omar Bautista, R. D. Caldwell Jr., Darren Charles, Devon Lindner, Arash Rahbar, Sharif Reid, Ani Saliasi, Russell Waheed. How to look, you can check the photo gallery below.
