Your wife or girlfriend takes notice. You might even catch other girls looks start to linger longer. Maybe sometimes too long…ya you know what I mean.

The Golden Ratio

Being a voracious reader, I had stumbled across this ratio before. I just never realized it was the ratio ; depicting nature’s ability to perfectly balance function and structure.

In nature you can see The Golden Ratio’s proportions in the contours of seashells, in the composition of chemical compounds, the arrangement of branches along the stems of plants and even in the shape of a hurricane.

Some of the most astounding architecture in the world, like the Egyptian pyramids, were constructed using the principles of The Golden Ratio.

Sculptors used The Golden Ratio to create sculptures that defined the ideal powerful and masculine body. Greek gods and powerful warriors were all depicted with The Golden Ratio, and artists went to great lengths to ensure their sculptures exemplified this ratio to perfection.

The Golden Ratio also dictates some of the proportions of the most attractive faces. Plastic and dental surgeons actually use the golden ratio to help rebuild and shape faces and mouths when undergoing reconstructive surgery.

Even human DNA is built according to The Golden Ratio!

Every cell of your body is filled with millions of examples of The Golden Ratio at work in the most perfect system of all – the human body.

When we apply the Golden Ratio to certain areas of our body we can dramatically improve structure and function by adjusting the size of different body parts in relation to the other; so that they form the golden ratio.

The Greek God Ideal

The ancient greeks were known to regularly put on display what they thought was the ideal male physique. The statues often portrayed what you think is the ideal male body: A good shoulder to waist ratio, bulging biceps and muscular but not overly developed legs.

Yes the sculptors actually used a specific formula for building these statues. In the bodybuilding world this formula is now known as the grecian ideal.

The grecian ideal was created by legendary strongman Eugen Sandow. He built his physique based on the mathematics he discovered when he analyzed the sculptures in the greek and roman museums. He may have been a little nerdy, but his work and dedication to excellence turned him into nothing short of a badass.

How to calculate the golden ratio for your body.

It starts with establishing reference points. These body parts will serve as starting points to reveal what the other parts need to be to create that Alpha look – Instead of the dreaded, life-sapping, average look.

Reference point #1 – Your waist to height ratio (44.7% of your height)

Your ideal waist (in inches) is your height (in inches) x 0.447

Reference point #2 – Your shoulders should measure 1.618 x your ideal waist (above)

Reference point #3: Your Flexed arm should be 150% larger than the circumference of your non-dominant wrist or 50% of your ideal waist

Reference point #4 Your chest should measure 550% larger of than the circumference of your non-dominant wrist or 1.4x your ideal waist

Reference point #5 Your upper leg circumference should be 75% larger than your knee circumference.

Reference point #6 – Your calves circumference (in inches) should equal your arms circumference (in inches)

Your Turn

Time to calculate your current measurements as well as your ideals.

Ideal Waist – 0.447 x height (in inches)

Ideal Shoulders – 1.618 x ideal waist measurement

Ideal Chest – 1.4 x ideal waist measurement

Ideal Arms/Calves 0.5 x ideal waist measurement

Ideal Legs – 1.75 x knee circumference measurement

Closing thoughts

Evolutionary psychology research reveals that people have evolved to be attracted to and seek out other people who display what is called genetic fitness.

Men with golden ratio proportions (or close to) will capture and dominate the attention of all people the same way a drop-dead, way too hot woman, can literally put people into a trance when she enters a room (Don’t lie, we’ve all fallen prey. Just smile, admit it and move on).

You and I might not like to admit this truth, but we will both size someone up and make a judgment about his or her intelligence, personality and overall life success within the first two seconds of eyeing them.

This is the notorious first impression, and you should make no mistake about it: People size you up and spit you into a category, before you have even spoken one single beautiful word to there pretty faces.

Because people judge you this quickly, it’s in your best interest to use your look and your body to your advantage. Plus it doesn’t hurt the ego too look damn good.
