ACHIEVING A V SHAPE⏳
These photos are a series of transformations that shows my waist getting smaller as my lats grow! The illusion comes from the growing of the shoulders and lats while keeping the waist tight. My waistline measurements aren’t that different in these photos but the lats have grown and so have my shoulders.
Specifically, focusing on growing my medial delts and my rear delts emphasizes this illusion from the backside point of view while growing the lats (not just the upper wings but the lower lats as well!!) helps create that balanced v shape down.
I see many people with overdeveloped upper lats (right under armpit) developed lower lats which creates asymmetry.
So, if you want a balanced, strong/athletic looking shape with that v from shoulders to waist, YOU HAVE TO FOCUS ON GROWING YOUR UPPER BODY! Especially if you don’t have the curvy small waist and are built more ‘square’ but want to create the v effect then this is extra important.
Building my back and upper body altogether has also been one of the most fun parts of fitness since I first started being serious about lifting back in 2014.
I want to emphasize that THERE IS NO WRONG OR RIGHT BODY SHAPE. I believe that we should always strive to create an optimally functioning body and however that looks on YOU is PERFECT. But we can’t pretend like being 50+ pounds overweight/higher in body fat is healthy for us. Just like I won’t pretend like the extremes of competing are healthy either.
At the end of the day, if you are giving your body to thrive and serve your soul at an optimal level then you should feel AWESOME and PROUD of yourself regardless of the shape you embody at this current moment.
