There is no consistent standard to symmetry.  It's whatever each judge thinks it is.

Then you’ve answered your own question to why Paris didn’t win the symmetry round.

There is not physique that symmetry applies to.

I was pointing that out as a negative to the judging.  There definitely should be a standard.

That doesn’t answer my point as to what is symmetry as it relates to a human body.?
I don’t see bob as being any better than quite a few others with similar type physique
And he certainly had a decent physique - I’d say very well balanced.

I look at a physique and if nothing stands out then thats symmetrical.

I think they used to have some measurement, arms matching calves and neck, a specific difference in waist and chest and quads.

I think it was in the book Pumping Iron, I think Steve Michalick came closest but he didnt look very symmetrical onstage

Yes I believe it was also from Greek ideal as well as Steve Reeves type physique
“The golden age physiques”

I’m playing devil’s advocate.
let’s take Phil with huge overdeveloped arms & small chest & narrow shoulders yet many
Say he’s symmetrical- Same as Arnold huge upper body & slim legs
Yet many also critique Tom for his Legs 🙄 🤔
I think it comes down a lot to personal views & likes.
The Definition of Symmetry in the dictionary can’t really be applied to a body builders
Physique as all body parts have different maximal growth size

As long as The 2 arms / 2 legs / 2 delts / etc match Each other in size & shape
Then those individual body parts are symmetrical.

I think his limbs were too long and that made him look weird.
