He's all there, big and all, but the total picture looks awkward-no grace, no glow, no..." The point had been made.
Glwanabe and I have talked about this topic, and I think it's a good one. The power/strength moves seem to create a naturally more balanced and eye-appealing physique. It's hard to describe but there is a certain physique harmony, flow and better overall aesthetics.

When I attend a natural bodybuilding show I can almost instantly tell who uses squats and deadlifts (and maybe even other power moves like dips). More than half the physiques on stage at a local show don't look strong or athletic. They lack that spark that says powerful, healthy and strong. Truth be told, a lot of them look frail and weak.
