What makes this body shape the best is not just because the letter V is one of the coolest letters in the alphabet, but because it is truly the best muscle structure that you could ever have. It is the body shape that many dream of and wish to someday have.
Let me explain to you what this body shape looks like. The V-shape body consists of a broad shoulder and a small waist. This is the simple way that many choose to define it with, but you can really define it by breaking down the muscles that are involved in this awesome body shape. Every major muscle from the shoulders down to your waist is cut, fit and lean!
These muscles include the major shoulder muscles, the lat muscles, the upper and lower back muscles, and the ab muscles. All of these muscles are what give the V-shape body its shape. Without the other muscles being in form, the shoulder and the waist areas could not do the job on their own. This is how I like to break down the best body shape for men.
Would you like to have a shape like this? Well, this body shape is at hands reach of anyone who takes on the challenge of a complex, but effective exercise routine that creates a lot of burn and requires much effort, plus dedication. So, if you are willing and think you are ready for the challenge, keep reading and find out how you too can obtain this awesome body that will make you feel Super Man like!
What Exercises to do you perform to obtain the V-shape? The following exercises are the exact medicine you need to get just what you want. I have placed them into a daily workout routine that sums to a week´s worth have workout, plus ending it with a full blast burn!
Day 1: Barbell Bench Press
Place a weight that is not too heavy, nor to light. Make sure it is just right to help you carry out a 20 to 30 burn out rep count. You will carry out 5 sets and in between you will rest for 10 seconds before getting back on.
Day 2: Barbell Pullover
Using a two 25 pond plates on a barbell, lie down with your head near the edge of the bench and have a personal spotter hand the bar on to you with your hands reaching backwards grabbing onto the bar with a shoulder width grip, pull the weight over your head and in front of your chest. Do 5 sets of 10 reps. Take 10 seconds rest in between each set.
Set the lat pull down machine to 50 pounds and use a shoulder width grip to hold onto the bar. Perform 10 sets of 10 reps with a 10 seconds rest in between.
Day 4: Incline Dumbbell Fly
Using an incline bench, grab a hold of two 30 pound dumbbells and do 10 sets of 10 reps with a rest of 10 seconds in between.
Day 5: Triceps Dips
Lift yourself over a dip bar and perform 10 sets of 15 reps with a break of 10 seconds in between. Make sure you drop down as low as you can go. The lower you go, the better the burn.
Day 6: Rest
Day 7: All exercises burnout!
After the rest day, you will perform a burn-out session of every exercise resting in between for 10 seconds to do as many push-ups as you can. You will start with doing each exercise from day one down. But, here is the catch! You will do only 3 round sets of each exercise with a rep count of 15.
For example; you will start off with the barbell bench press doing 10 reps, as soon as you are finished, your 10 seconds of break will consist of you doing as many push-ups as you can, and then, you will move on to the next exercise. Once you reach the last exercise with a push-up rest in between each, it will be considered as set 1. You will repeat this cycle for 2 more sets.
So, do you think you can handle it?!
