Men's physique bodybuilding is a recent phenomenon, having been introduced in 2012 at the Olympia. As the name suggests, the aim of the sport is a much more focused approach to the aesthetic look and less so on pure muscularity and bulk. Considerations such as a shoulder to waist ratio are key to doing well in the sport.
