    Discuss your opinion on the balance between size, symmetry and aesthetics.

    In my opinion bodybuilding is a sport defined by balance between 3 things. Symmetry, size, and aesthetics. But for the past two decades or so it has been geared mainly towards freakish size. Two bodybuilders that exemplify this balance to me are Jaco De Bruyn and Helmut Strebl. Who are the bodybuilders that exemplify it for you?

    agreed about balance between 3 things

    As for me:

    Schwarzenegger - size, Zane - symmetry, Zyzz - aesthetics

    Size and symmetry make aesthetics, no?

    Or does 'aesthetics' refer to muscle shape/insertions?

    Would love to look like Zane @ my height. For me, that's the ideal physique, but bodybuilding-wise more mass is probably required nowadays.
