Is there a perfect body shape for men? According to fitness expert John Barban, “there is one true perfect male form that is the purest, most powerful and attractive shape a male can possess”.
The Adonis Golden Ratio – The Perfect Male Shape
John Barban discovered the concept of the Adonis Golden Ratio (AGR) when he decided to look beyond the available information in the fitness industry to find answers on how to get the perfect body shape for a man.
“Surprisingly the answer wasn’t found in anything the fitness industry had produced or any of the strategies my world record holding powerlifter and champion bodybuilder friends used”, confesses John who has created a full fitness program based on the concept and named it The Adonis Golden Ratio (AGR) System.
“Oddly enough, the answer appeared when I obsessively shifted my focus to human anatomy, genetics, psychology and attraction research in an attempt to identify what male build has been proven to create the most admiration, respect, and physical attraction. After all, I’m sure you’ll agree these aspirations are the main reasons why you and I work out in the first place”.
How To Get The AGR Body Shape?
We know that losing fat and building muscle through nutrition and exercise is the way to change the shape of your body. However, getting the perfect body calls for specific protocols that most muscle building programs do not follow.
Unfortunately, simply following any fitness program to get in shape does not guarantee that you’ll get the Adonis Golden Ratio. You may train hard, eat right and even get good muscle building and fat loss results, yet do not have this specific body shape. So what is it?
It’s a very specific proportion of your waist to your shoulders that is represented by a special ratio. In order to find out if your body fits into the parameters of the Adonis Golden Ratio, you have to measure your waist to shoulders.
Depending on where you are in terms of how far or close your body is to the AGR, you’ll then focus on building your body to get the precise ratio. A few guys who workout may unknowingly get the AGR, but most guys would need to optimize their Adonis Index to get the specific proportion.
Optimizing your Adonis Index simply means developing your shoulders so they’re broad compared to your waist. The waist to shoulder ratio that is in line with the AGR is 1:1.618. So, if your waist is given a value of 1, your shoulders should be 1.618. This would be considered the ideal Adonis Index.
Why Does Waist-to-Shoulder Measurement Determine Men’s Perfect Shape?
It’s really an interesting concept that combines science, psychology, mathematics and even evolutionary theory. First of all, the golden ratio has held a special fascination for at least 2,400 years. Through history, scientists and artists believed this ratio determines what is objectively attractive.
In mathematics, two quantities are in the golden ratio if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities. 1.618 is the value that represents the golden ratio. Secondly, study proves women are genetically and evolutionary hard-wired to seek out and be attracted to men with broad shoulders.
Roman, a fitness expert, and contributor to Men’s Health wrote “Broad shoulders imply strength, power, and virility, and are, therefore, a mating qualifier that makes a man’s body appear more attractive to the opposite sex. However, broad is relative. Something can only be seen as broad if it’s compared to something less so. This is where your shoulder-to-waist measurement comes in”.
It’s Not Just The Best Shape For Attracting Women
Looking more attractive to women is not the only benefit men get from possessing the Adonis Golden Ratio. You’ll also get more respect from other men and people in general. “It creates an immediate subconscious admiration from both sexes which is referred to as “The Adonis Effect”.
The Adonis Effect is the powerful subconscious effect and influences your physical presence has on others” said John. What’s also advantageous of the AGR is that it makes it easier to reach your muscle building and fat loss goals.
In John’s own words “losing fat and increasing lean muscle, strength and performance are exceptionally easier and faster when you achieve this proportion because your body is in its strongest, most natural form evolution meant for it to be in”. John claims that any guy, with any body type or genetics, can achieve this proportion and the advantages that naturally follow.
The Bottom Line
If you’ve been trying to get a “perfect body”, you definitely want to pay careful attention to the Adonis Golden Ratio. The perfect body with ripped muscle, broad shoulders and a narrow waist that meets the proportional requirement of the AGR may be closer than you think. And if you want a program to achieve this body shape, you can’t go wrong by choosing John Barban’s AGR System because this is what it was designed for.
