The elegance of @francisbenfatto in this classic pose is off the charts! His amazing V-taper is on display here.
Again, I am going to sound like a broken record here, but that upward gaze! Most who hit this pose look downward. I suppose that coveys a sort of introspective feeling that may appeal to some. I prefer the uplifting feel of the upward gaze. It conveys confidence, power, bravery...almost any POSITIVE message possible.
I’m not saying that all poses need to project these things, though it surely would not hurt. What I AM saying is to be aware of the messages you can send with subtle changes in angles, expressions...emotions. In fact, remember to EMOTE! The greatest posing artists not only find the best possible way to display their physique in terms of angles and lines. They also make us FEEL something. In fact I guarantee you that should a Classic Physique competitor chose this as their 5th Mandatory Pose and NOT emote something (confidence most importantly), no matter how great their physique, they will fail. They will fail to captivate and capture the attention of judges as their opponents lunge into crouching poses or twisting Bicep shots.
Mr. Benfatto here would win #YourFavoriteClassicPose hands down against almost anyone with this shot here!

While posting a bunch of classical poses over the last several days in this sort of long drawn out unofficial @this_is_bodybuilding series I’ve been calling “Your Favorite Classic Pose” the single Bodybuilder people have been accusing me of “forgetting” more than any other 3 Bodybuilders combined is @francisbenfatto. Actually, I haven’t forgotten anyone. Why haven’t any of you asked why I’ve forgotten @officialsamirbannout, Mohamed Makkawy, @vincetaylor50 or ... any number of amazing posing artists I simply haven’t gotten to yet? Did you guys “forget” about them?
Well...now that I’ve reminded you all of these guys I guess I will have to post pix of them all over the next week or so.
For today, I give you the amazing Francis Benfatto! This pose right here is pure magnificence!!! Again, the upward gesture and gaze!!! There is great power and UPLIFT in all such poses. And when the physique is as majestic as Mr. Benfatto’s it is absolutely mesmerizing!

Francis Benfatto is known for having one of the most conditioned and symmetrical physiques in the industry. He’s spent years perfecting his routines, diet and training principles. He’s also known for utilizing a training method call A.R.T (auto-regulation training), which has enabled him to continue competing well into his late 40s.’ Francis has been competing for over 20 years, but it wasn’t all blue skies, he also faced setbacks when judges didn’t take his physique serious enough. Francis has always trained for perfect symmetry and conditioning rather than pure size. After a 13 year break, making a return to the stage at the age of 48 in 2006, he wowed judges with his incredible physique he spent years perfecting

Next SHOW for me in 60 days ! 💪
Olympia Amateur - THE CLASSIC PHYSIC DIVISION... Aiming for something BIG, is the only way to push FORWARD AND FURTHER... Cette division est pour moi l'objectif absolue en terme d'accomplissement esthétique dans le monde du Bodybuilding.
Le juste compromis entre masse musculaire, ligne, proportions, symétrie et grâce.
Dès le début de mon aventure dans ce sport, il a toujours été question de s'aligner sur ce modèle de physique qui rappelle les grands physique de ce sport #goldenerabodybuilding
#arnoldschwarzenegger
#frankzane
#louferrigno
#bobparis #francisbenfatto #francocolumbu
Regain de popularité considèrable ces dernières années pour ce modèle de physique... Cette Division s'associe a mon objectif personnel pour le long terme et je n'aurai de cesse d'oeuvrer a exceller et progresser au fil des années pour perfectionner mon physique.

Derniere ligne droite cette année. On se confronte aux meilleurs a Allicante en 2018 et mes échecs permettront de confronter toutes les améliorations à fournir pour 2019 afin d'aller encore plus loin et toujours s'améliorer.

Je me rejouis de toute les épreuves qui m'attendent sur cette longue route qui se dessine a l'horizon.

#classicphysic #olympiaamateur #npc #bodybuilding #vikingbreed #longevity #allicante

2004 was my best Shape at the Famous IFBB International Slovakia Grand Prix. During this Time, my model was the Shape that @francisbenfatto had ever presented at the 1990 MrO.
And I can say I was very close to this goal

Backtotheroots-pt.ch #onlinecoach #personaltrainer Side chest pose with Francis Benfatto, the great french Champion often described as the most symmetrical and aesthetic Athlete that ever graced a Bodybuilding stage.. We just had a nice workout and were all pumped up.. Francis used absolutely perfect form in his training; therefore he was not moving extremely heavy weights.. At the end of the day, in order to stimulate muscle growth, one of the key factors is intensity and not the amount of plates you have on the bar..#strictform #francisbenfatto #sidechest #bodybuildingsesthetic #noegotrip #naturalbodybuilding #naturalmruniverse #ifbbpro #maximizeyourworkout #maximizeyourpotential #oldschoolbodybuilding #backtotheroots
