5 Best Exercises Proven For Aesthetic V-Taper

What’s the most attractive and aesthetic form of the male physique?

Is it a big chest?

What about bulging biceps?

What if I told you it was having a nice v-taper body (aka golden ratio)?

Having big broad shoulders, a v-taper back, and a narrow waist is the type of body you should develop.

That might be hard to believe since most guys don’t train for it, but science has shown this is the best route to go.

The question now becomes what exercises can you do to develop your v-taper as fast as possible?

I’ve got just the thing for ya.

Today, I’ll be sharing with you the 5 best exercises for developing a perfect golden ratio body as fast as possible.

Here we go…

Why The Golden Ratio is the Most Aesthetic Male Physique You Can Develop

The golden ratio has been scientifically shown to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Here’s the simplest way I can describe it:

“Dividing a line into 2 parts so that the larger part divided by the smaller part is also equal to the whole length divided by the longer part.”

Wow what a mouthful.

Essentially you need to know that people like the way the golden ratio looks, and it’s found in many different things:

  • Pinecones
  • Seashells
  • Hurricanes
  • DNA
  • Flower Petals

How can you apply it to develop the perfect v-taper body?

What you need to do is develop a killer shoulder-to-waist ratio.

Specifically having your shoulders be 1.618 times bigger than your waist.

For example, let’s say you’re a 6 foot tall male.

You’re ideal waist measurement would be 32.4 inches and your ideal shoulder measurement would be 52.4 inches.

Here’s a simple 2-step formula you can use to determine your own perfect ratio:

Step 1: Multiply your height (in inches) by .45 for your ideal waist measurement.

Step 2: Take your ideal waist and multiply that number by 1.618 for your ideal shoulder measurement.

3 Mistakes Guys Make When Trying to Get a V-Taper Body

Mistake #1: Too Much Chest and Biceps

The most common mistake guys will make when trying to develop a perfect body is to not even train the right muscle groups!

Guys will go to the gym and only work on their “show muscles.”

Not only will this create an unbalanced physique, but also training the wrong muscle groups won’t bring you any closer to a v-taper body.

Instead, there are 3 main muscle groups you need to focus on when developing the perfect v-taper body:

  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Upper Chest

In one way or another, all 3 of these muscle groups will contribute to your overall shoulder circumference measurement.

Your primary aim is to build up these muscle groups and not something else like your biceps.

Mistake #2: Not Focusing on Getting Leaner

Another part of the v-taper body equation is having low levels of body fat.

You can have the broadest shoulders in the world, but it won’t mean a thing if you have a thick waistline.

Many guys will go on a bulk and use that as an excuse to eat whatever they please.

The problem is that you’re gaining as much fat as you are muscle.

Eventually you’ll have to burn off the additional fat gain, which is a waste of time if it could have been prevented.

Here’s the kicker:

What should you do if you need to burn fat and build muscle?

Which goal should you attack first?

Fortunately, I’ve written an entire post based around overcoming the skinny fat syndrome.

Mistake #3: Not Getting Stronger

Here’s the deal:

Your body grows through progressive overload—aka getting stronger over time.

How much weight have you added to your key lifts in the past 2 months?

If your answer to that question is not much, then you have your answer as to why you’re not building muscle.

You need to stop focusing on circuits, drop-sets, super sets, high reps, etc.

These kinds of workouts make it hard to gain strength.

Instead, take longer rest periods (3-5 minutes) and work in a shorter rep range (5-6).

The longer rest periods will ensure a full recovery between sets and the lower rep range will allow you to lift the heaviest amount of weight possible.
