What National Level Judges are Looking For by Chris Yakimchuk (Model: Nina Luchka)

Editor Notes: The below footage was taken Saturday night right after the Canadian Figure/Fitness Nationals at around 9:00PM. Nina Luchka was kind enough to be our model for this short segment. Our featured judge Chris Yakimchuk from Canada chose Nina's physique as he thought it was one of the best physiques to showcase what a figure/fitness body should look like in contest shape.
