I like this article about ideal body shape, because so many people are concerned about weight or % fat but they have no accurate way of measuring the percent fat and they may lose weight only to find that they have also lost muscle. Like the ideal hip to waist ratio the shoulder to waist ratio can be just as useful. For those men looking to attract women, it is more useful.
Have you ever wondered how we all can spot a person that has an ideal body shape? We can even recognize other shapes – a building or a
sculpture that just looks ‘right’? All people have an inherent ability to recognize beauty when they see it, but few have ever stopped and tried to describe and measure it.
There is a specific set of measurements and ratios that can tell you what the perfectly proportioned body looks like. Classic Greek and Roman sculptors like Leonardo da Vinci figured out these proportions a long time ago but over time, the concept has disappeared.
The 3 measurements you need to know to determine your ideal body shape proportions are as follows:
Research done on human anatomy, classic art sculpture, and the psychology of attraction tells us that there is a specific body shape and size that people will find most attractive and pleasing to look at. People that are close to this ideal size are generally treated more favorably, because we live in a society that is driven by beauty and perfection. Given the physical and social benefits of a perfectly proportioned body, aren’t you curious to know what your specific ideal size and shape is, and how to get it?
Starting with your height measurement, each person will have an ideal waist measurement and ideal shoulder measurement that equal your perfect body proportions. These are not up for debate. Scientific research indicates women will find a man most attractive when his proportions approach these ideal measurements. Most people have no idea what these measurements are or how to achieve them.
To start, you need to know where you are now compared to what your ideal is. Once you know your starting point you can determine how to go about getting to where you want to be. The fitness industry has always been striving for the perfectly proportioned look. However, until now nobody has managed to pin down what this “look” is, how to measure it, and how to get it.
I’ve created a workout that is based on bringing you to your specific ideal body shape starting with your current measurements. This specific and defined goal is the best way I have found to formulate an effective workout strategy that gets you to where you want to be.
Forget just doing weights to get big, or doing cardio to burn fat, I’m talking about a specific workout routine to build your body into its perfect form. To get bigger only in the right places and lose inches where you need to. This routine is called the Adonis Index Workout
