When you first started working out you probably already had an image of the ideal body you were trying to build and it probably didn’t look like a power lifter or a strongman. In fact it was probably a very specific looking body shape that involved powerful looking shoulders back and chest with a distinct taper to a tight waist.
Most of us had a simple goal when we started working out, and that was simply to look better. Along the way we can easily get caught up in specific styles of training (athletic, functional, powerlifting, olympic style lifting etc) and lose sight of our original goal.
Whether you understood it at the time or not you’re first ideas of improving the look of your body probably revolved around improving your proportions and not just haphazardly trying to be bigger or thicker with no eye to the proportions.
In this podcast we’ll discuss how we all knew what we wanted when we first started working out (a better looking body)
We’ll also discuss how easy it is to get sidetracked and lose focus on why we started working out in the first place.
Finally we remind you that size for the sake of size is no benefit aesthetically if it’s not well proportioned.
