How To Build Muscle And Social Dominance At The Same Time

There are many people who may not be familiar with the idea of social dominance and how it relates to our physical bodies.  But the idea of the ideal male physique and how people who have cultivated this can become leaders in not only their social spheres, but in business and industry as well. Let’s look at some the ways in which muscle building can and does help us achieve these goals. 

Most guys enter the arena of muscle building with the vague idea of getting as big and powerful as possible with the mistaken notion that this will not only make them more attractive to the opposite sex, but will help them health-wise as well. Well, getting strong can have some beneficial health effects, but the idea that a shirt-ripping overblown chest and biceps will send women flocking to your front door is not only wrong, but can have the opposite effect. Studies have shown that what women have found as the irresistible male form through the ages is the classic “V” shape, one that is defined by a strong set of shoulders, tapering down to a trim waistline, with a well-defined chest and midsection in between. This has been the standard of classical artists such as Michelangelo, Da Vinci and more, and they have used this as a model for their great works of art. There’s a reason for that, and even the ancients knew it! 

There is a mathematical equation relating to this form, and it is known as the “Golden Ratio”.  It is expressed mathematically as 1:1:618 and has been used both in art as well as architecture. It even shows up in some of the processes of nature. Evidently nature has a formula for perfection as well! 

As far as social dominance is concerned, we’ve all seen instances where this has played out before our eyes. Who hasn’t noticed the guy who walks into a room, possessing all the above characteristics, looking great, with an aura of confidence surrounding his every move. Heads turn, eyes drool, women stir and men defer as this guy is given all the attention. He is given the benefit of the doubt, whether he deserves it or not, and will be given the chance to succeed or fail first, before anyone else. This may not be fair, but it is the way of the world we live in. 

I built the Adonis Index workout to develop both your body and your social dominance. It aims for developing an exact set of measurements that will deliver this classic form to any man, depending on his height. It meets every man where he is, and if followed, will deliver up the kind of ideal male form we’ve been talking about and that you desire!



Why Bigger Isn’t BETTER

If you’re like most guys, when you started working out you probably had a bodyweight goal in mind that was your target.

When you were 170 pounds 180 was the goal. When you were 180 lbs 190 lbs was the goal, then there was the monumental day you hit 200 lbs when you were finally in the big leagues. 200 lbs is the universal cutoff point where you go from being on the all hands team to being one of the proverbial big dogs.

From there 210 lbs became the goal, and then 220 lbs…it seems to never end. So this brings up the question:

1) Why do you want to be so big?

The answer is not one that most guys can quite put into words but they all feel it. The need to be bigger is rooted in a uniquely male instinct to exert dominance over other men.

Physical dominance still reigns supreme in our world. Negotiating and talking can only get you so far until brute force takes over. At the end of every conflict and at the end of every argument is always someone who is either physically bigger or carrying a bigger stick, end of story.

This could mean a one on one fight where the bigger man wins.

Or nation vs nation where the bigger better equipped army wins. Either way physical dominance is still the way conflicts are resolved.

Every government rules its people by force, just think of what will happen to you if you don’t pay your taxes, men with guns will forcefully detain you until you pay them. Powerful countries also exert their will over other countries by military force (think of any current or past war).

The male instinct to possess physical dominance is one and the same as the instinct for survival and the need to be free. This is where the feeling of constantly needing to be more muscular or bigger comes from.

However being the biggest guy clearly isn’t the answer, as even the biggest guys still want to get bigger, physical dominance isn’t necessary to succeed in our modern society.

There is a more targeted way to design your workouts for a more specific goal.

It is pretty easy to see that in our modern society we have evolved past the need to physically dominant others to succeed in life. You can’t just fight and physically intimidate your way to a successful career, relationship, or any other aspect of your life. (Unless of course you are a professional fighter, which I’m sure most of you are not)

True success doesn’t come from physical dominance, it comes from social dominance and social status.
This is what the Adonis Lifestyle is all about.
