I think the athletes ultimately create the standard and fine tune the criteria, the evolution of the posing and physique in the Men’s Physique division since the beginning is proof of that. I don’t think I’m outside the criteria, I’ve always stayed within boundaries, not on purpose, but because my progress is slow, but steady. I’ll continue to add detail and bring a symmetrical, balanced physique to the stage every time. If the judges disagree and tell me that I should go into Classic Physique, then I’ll take my time and give myself a long offseason before transitioning into the new division, just like I did when I started competing in Men’s Physique. I didn’t jump into it right away, and took my time setting up a plan, which worked. Ultimately I will end up in Classic Physique, the progress will determine how soon.
