regards BBing ofcourse
What REALLY is aesthetics?
Some would say pleasing to the eye but then again what pleases you may not please me making this arguement void

Is the david statue aesthetic just because it happens to be a generally well liked physique type or just because the greeks etc... wrote about what they thought was aesthetic and so it automatically became that? (which also happens to be what is generally liked today)

Wouldnt it have been possible to grow up thinking Huge physiques are aesthetic if that was the general concensus.

Imho there is no such thing as aesthetics and the idea of always balance is rubbish, but where created because it happened to be the most common thing and hence became generally accepted as correct thought

what do you think?

If you have to ask this question then you need to spend more time around the sport.

Yes it is a subjective viewpoint, but it is based upon certain criteria and balances to the physique. Currently there is a "mass is good" view held by most in BBing circles. But you can have mass and still be aesthetic (it is about balance).

It is like a judge once said about porn. Can't describe it, but I know it is porn when I see it.

Just think Zane, Paris, Benfatto etc.

BB has to be something that it is beatifull.

Like Arnold said your body is your piece of art, your sculpture. The way I see it, the body has to be built in such a way that inspires others to workout to try to achive your type of physique.

Ronnie is great, but only a small percentage of people would like to have his body ( including Cutler).

Now if you say Arnold, Serge, Zane... That's what BB is about, drugs or no drugs.
