LOOK YOUR AESTHETIC BEST | KNOW YOUR BODYBUILDING MEASUREMENTS

 

What does an aesthetically sculpted physique look like? Well according to the Golden Ratio in Bodybuilding, it goes something like this:
Broad shoulders
Bulging biceps with equally developed triceps
A flat, armour plated chest
V taper from a small waist up to the broad shoulders
Defined abdominal region
Well developed legs featuring quad definition with matching hamstrings and bicep-like calves

THE GRECIAN IDEAL

The ancient Greeks had a definite ideal regarding how the male physique should look. In the 19th century, newly excavated Greek and Roman statues highlighted similar physical characteristics such as a small, muscular waist, wide shoulders and detailed, but not overwhelmingly huge, muscles.

The great Eugene Sandow (the man the Mr. Olympia statuette is based on and the first man many regard to have achieved true muscularity) achieved close to this ideal around this time, and was widely revered for fitting what Victorian society, at that period, considered being the perfectly proportioned physique.

Through much analysis and determining of what constituted ideal physical measurements – the basis of any balanced physique – a “Grecian Ideal” calculator was formulated for self-assessment based on wrist size, to determine the individual body part circumference goals one should aspire to in order to develop the perfect physique.
