how to achieve body proportion

Something that so many men want to achieve is proportion in their physique. A body that has balance on either side is highly attractive, but we have many environmental factors that influence the way we look and can throw everything out of proportion.

Take a look at Rafael Nadal, professional tennis player.

 

Nadal is a left handed player. Many people have noticed that his left arm is far bigger than his right. It’s clear that this has occurred from repetitive use.

With that being said, we have to take into consideration how we move in daily life. Over the period of 10 years or so, being right handed will probably lead to a larger right arm than left.

This person would probably lift more with their right hand, write with it, play sports with it, etc.

This is why people are stronger with their favoured arm. They simply use it more throughout their life. The same feature occurs all throughout the body, there will be a certain side that gets used more than the other.

 

Combating Environmental Factors

In order to combat this effect of having one side larger than the other, you should be performing 1 or 2 extra reps on your weaker side.

Example: If you’re right handed and you clearly have a larger right arm than left, then it makes sense to do 2 extra bicep curls on your left side.

By doing this you’ll combat the effects of daily life and balance out your body. Over the period of a year or so, you’ll have a symmetric physique that looks well balanced on either side.

It’s not a hard thing to do, you simply need to remember to do 1 or 2 extra reps each time you’re performing a set, as long as the exercise allows it.

Olympic athletes found this to be a major advantage when they changed their training routines.

Since a running track always sees runners going anti-clockwise, top level track and field athletes found that their bodies were becoming larger and stronger on one side and less so on the other.

The athletes and the trainers had a discussion, and decided to start running around the track in a clockwise direction for 50% of the session.

This resulted in a more proportionate physique and as a bonus improved results.
