Do You Want to Look Like a Bodybuilder, Athlete or Thin?
Eventually in life you have to decide: are you going to a hot dog or a weiner? Heres what I mean. WHO do you want to look like? I'm serious, you have to figure out ultimately what your goal is. What do you want to look like? What your ULTIMATE goal is, will effect WHAT you should do to get that body.

There are THREE categories as I see it.

1. Bodybuilders: People that want to look like bodybuilders want size at any cost. Its impossible for a natural amateur bodybuilder to achieve the proportions and size that a steroid using bodybuilder has. Genetics play a huge role as you get super advanced, and only those with the best genetics will be able to pose on stage or look like their role models. Don't get me wrong, its a noble pursuit, and there are great natural bodybuilders. It takes several years, for some up to ten years or more to gain they would like to achieve. To train for this, bodybuilders should focus always on bringing up lagging areas, and emphasizing your natural advantages. Splits are more important than raw strength, more advanced techniques will be necessary to keep getting results. I do not want to look like a bodybuilder for the record.

2. Athletes: These are people that not only want to look built, are very lean, year around but are powerful and functional. They not only want to look good, they want to perform even better. You can rock that body on the beach, in bed, all day and all night, all right? ALL RIGHT. When I say athletic I mean running backs in the NFL, sprinters, and gymnasts are just a couple of examples. Your focus is on performance, which builds your aesthetics. You care about what numbers you lift in the gym, you care about your health, and you care about how you look. This is where my goal is. To achieve this, foundation work of strength is necessary, anabolic cardio would be a staple, and by this I mean sprints, prowler work, sledgehammer work, circuits, and you eat food to fuel your body and performance. Due to your high volume of exercise, its actually the easiest way to gain size and be lean, just look at those pictures of the NFL players.

3. Thin: These are dudes that want to go after that starving model look. There is nothing wrong with that, for them its all about leanness. For them, Bruce Lee, Tyler Durden are their heroes and the people they would most want to look like. To achieve this look, its all about diet and a high volume of exercise. I would stick with 2-3x per week heavy lifts, full body days to preserve muscle. I would drop all unnecessary carbs, focusing on evenly spaced protein rich meals (5-6) and more traditional cardio than what I normally recommend. Remember, you are all about being skinny and lean. So preserving muscle isn't your second priority

In my opinion the most noble, sustainable and aesthetic is option two, having the athletic look.
Its the look that EVERYONE can achieve, it has huge cross-over in real life, its the best for your joints, and I think ultimately more satisfying and long lasting. Whatever

Who do you want to look like? Post in the comment section below! Personally if you are going for the bodybuilding look, I much prefer the classic Frank Zane, Ed Corny looks to the GH gut guys of today.
