Not all fitness advice for building the perfect body for a man would be right for you depending on your goals. Different people have different opinions on what is the perfect fit body that men should aim for when they start working out. So because there are different body shapes that are seen as ideal in different fitness circles, you have to focus on your individual goals.
If your goal is to get a physique like what a male Cover Model would have (which is what the majority of women prefer), you’ll want to take advice from someone who believe this type of body shape is perfect for men. You’ll not want to take advice from someone who believes that the big bodybuilder physique is the ideal body shape men should aim.
That said, the following tips are for men who want to get a perfect male cover model physique that looks lean and toned. not big and muscular.
1 Don’t Believe That Only The Bodybuilder Physique Is Perfect
Being big and massive with muscle popping out all over your body is the ideal look for the bodybuilder physique. This a great way to impress guys in the gym and bodybuilding forums, but won’t get you far with women. Women, when asked, think that this look is unappealing or simply sending the wrong message to them like “lifting weights is the only thing I care about”. Almost every survey or social experiment showed that women prefer men with the lean muscular body.
However, it is really easy to get sucked into the quest of gaining as much muscle mass as possible because most people in bodybuilding circles would promote being big and muscular as the perfect body. And they would even go as far as to redicule and criticize guys who have a slim and toned build with average muscle mass. But as I said, the bodybuilder physique may be the perfect body for some people because it shows great strength, muscle gain and dedication to fitness. But If you want to be more attractive to the opposite sex, then your goal should not be to get big muscles. Opt for the lean athletic look instead.
2 Control How You Gain Muscle In Specific Body Parts
You have to aim for the right proportion if you want to build a perfectly attractive body, which requires controlling the amount of muscle you add in specific body parts. Muscle Specialization is a smart way to create a desired look because you’ll control the size of every body part and create the exact look you want for your body. Studies have shown that women are instantly attracted to men with broad shoulders. So you want to ensure you have well-developed shoulders if you want to create an admirable look.
The irony about gaining muscle evenly over your entire body is that it creates a slightly bigger version of what you look like before you started working out. Each muscle will look a little better individually, but your whole body won’t look much different. And what’s worse is if you uncontrollably gain muscle in certain muscle groups at a quicker rate than other muscle groups, you may end up looking odd.
The way to make sure that everything will look right after all the muscle is added on your body is to NOT follow the common advice of just sticking to the big lifts like deadlifts, squats, and bench presses. The better approach is increasing the volume of muscles that you need to grow and backing down on the other muscles. For example, if you want a larger upper chest, then focus on increasing the volume on various incline presses, incline flyes, hammer strength machines, etc.
3. Your Muscles Should Be Hard And Firm
Depending on the type of approach you use it’s possible to gain a lot of muscle that end up looking soft and puffy. If you want to create a perfect-looking body the last thing you want to become is a rounded mass of soft muscle. That’s the reason learning about muscle density and the two different muscle growths is important. Muscule density refers to the hardness your muscles have when at rest. You can control muscle density by using the two muscle growths appropriately.
4. Make Sure That Your Body Stays Lean When Gaining Muscle
Trying to gain muscle quickly is fine, but you need to make sure that you don’t put on a bunch of fat in the process. This is a big mistake. When you add a lot of fat to your body along with the muscle, you will quickly look less attractive to women. And it’s not just about your body. Even your face loses an angular handsome look when you gain a lot of body fat. Avoiding fat gain has a lot to do with your muscle building nutrition approach, but your workout would also come into play.
5. Make Sure To Get A Six Pack Abs
If you want to get an exceptional physique, than having a six pack abs is the way to go. To see a defined midsection you will need to get your body down to a low body fat percentage. The fat around your stomach area is usually the last to go. That’s the reason many fit people do not have six pack abs.
If you get to the point where your abs are showing, then I guarantee your whole body will look amazing. Getting down to a low body fat level is simply a matter of burning calories, but the tirck is to maintain your muscles in the process. There are several methods to do this that work.
