What is the Ideal Male Form?

Let us not lie. There is certainly a hierarchy of human male forms. For example a man with more muscle mass and less body fat (also taller) is preferred over a man with less muscle mass and more body fat (and shorter).

Now there are some things we can control about our form and some things we cannot. We can control our ability to put on muscle mass and to subtract bodily fat. However we cannot control our height (this is etched in genetic stone).

So I suppose when it comes to thinking about the ideal male form, better to think to yourself (if you’re a man):

What is my own personal ideal male form, and what am I willing to sacrifice or do in order to attain it (no drugs, no steroids, no human growth hormone or strange metabolism enhancer or deregulators).


My Muscle Philosophy:

Treat your body as sculpture.

This is not my body

The first thing:

I don’t see my body as belonging to me. I look at my body like it belongs to someone else.

When I look at the Lamborghini of someone else, I admire it. When I see the muscles and physiques of anyone else, I admire it. Then I had the epiphany:

Why not transform my own body into a Lambo, and admire my own body instead?

The logic

The great logic:

  1. It is far cheaper to get buff than to buy a Lambo.
  2. The human body is the apex beauty. This means your personal goal in life should be to beautify your own personal body to the maximum (without plastic surgery, steroids, etc).
  3. Ultimate democratic approach: Genetics doesn’t matter. Sex doesn’t matter. Racial ethnicity doesn’t matter. Anyone can both add muscle mass and subtract fat.
  4. It doesn’t cost much to get ripped. Just intermittent fast [no breakfast, no lunch], one big ass meal a day, and mostly a ‘ketogenic’ diet.
  5. Your body is always with you. Why not beautify your body to inspire yourself?

The joy of sculpting your own body

To sculpt your own body is insanely fun. Why? You can see the change over time!

Once again, the goal is simple:

Never stop adding muscle mass, and never stop reducing body fat, or keeping it low (around 10%).

Muscle and your body is highly practical.

The more muscle you have, the more energy you got. The more power you got to make art-work, and live with gratitude, joy, and hyper-vigor.

Strengthen on, and flex on!
