"If you’re trying to suss out the most attractive male body type, look at mediamarketed towards women.We can illustrate this with a study that looked into the differing degrees of muscularity in men’s and women’s magazines (study).Most women are attracted to physiques that are a little leaner and more muscular than average, like the guy you’d see on the cover ofCosmo. Most men consider that physique too small.

At theMen’s Healthlevel, the disparity shrinks. These bodies are muscular enough to look good to men but not so muscle-bound that they look bad to women. Some researchers argue that these stronger physiques are what women gravitate towards in real life. After all, both guys look ripped with their shirts off, but theMen’s Healthguy can fill out a shirt better than theCosmoguy can.

However, once you’ve got a “fit” physique, you’ll hit a point of diminishing returns. Gaining another twenty pounds of muscle won’t make you look significantly more attractive to women because it won’t make you look significantly healthier or more athletic. The benefit at that point is that you’ll look better to yourself and other men.

Then, as we move towards media designed for male lifters, such asMen’s Fitness, the disparity between male and female preferences widens again. Most guys who lift weights prefer these more muscular physiques, whereas women start to find them muscle-bound and bulky"

    If you do your own research into the female gaze and you're lifting, you already know this.
    It's the same with men and bikini competitions, varbies and roided out ogress that compete in classic physique.
    The average normie women and men tend to like the "toned" slim body with "some muscle."

            True. If the image does not refer to the presence, the presence has to refer to the image, otherwise people will underestimate you in any sense. I think.

            Chest is too small. As long as working out isn't one of your only hobbies then it doesn't matter. If you look massive as fuck then people tend to tjink it all you do. As long as it's not it's fine

      Unironically this body is mentioned.

      " We also showed them a photo array of actors, again with the heads cut off. Women chose the body of Brad Pitt in Fight Club:

      [ Which actor male physique is the most attractive to women? Brad Pitt / Fight Club / Tyler Durden ] pic related*

      Brad Pitt is a naturally thin guy. To bulk up for Fight Club, he started lifting weights. This is the physique that became legendary. This is the physique that women rated as the most attractive. It’s not the physique of someone who’s “naturally” in good shape, but it’s not the physique of a diehard bodybuilder, either. This the body of someone with fairly average muscle-building genetics who spent a few months building muscle.

      There’s a miscommunication here. Women say they prefer “naturally” fit guys, but in reality, they prefer guys who look like they lift weights. Remember, we showed women a wide range of physiques. The guys who were out of shape got 0–1% of the votes.

      There’s another side to this, though, and most men find it even more confusing."

            But the thing is if you want to make money from attentionwhoring online you need to market to men. That's why all bodybuilders look gay, because women aren't pathetic enough to pay men money for being sexy lol.

        One thing about this that i wonder is if women rate the bodies on other things then just muscle. Brad Pit has a good body because of the length of his limbs, the proportions the muscle insertions, shoulder to waist ratio, and so on. How can they know that is the muscularity they are rating his body on and not the other things? Understand what i mean?

          Understandable.
          Yes. If he had pectus carinatum and still had the same body, people might judge him as less attractive, despite keeping the same body composition.

        makes sense, women also like to think that a man is effortlessly good rather than having to work his ass off, so a body that would require discipline but not a too great effort is the sweet spot

        I think there's definitely other factors in play. Between his body and the angle/lighting in that pic Brad looks very harmonic, balances. It's just pleasant too look at even as a bunch of abstract shapes imo

        But they don't know that he spent a few months in the gym to get that body. To them, he is lean and has muscle, but not perfectly carved pecs and abs, so he must be naturally like that. Know what I mean?

      Yes. But when we talk about steroids, we are talking about stimulants. I think the question is about how someone who is hormonized but has a "natural" physique is more preferable than a hypothetical giant bodybuilder but who has not used such steroids.

      In other words... the preference is about the cover of the book, not how good content it would have.

    and once you look better to other men, men respect you, and if they respect you, they talk and look up to you, and then the woman notices: "wow all of those guys look up to this other guy, I want to fuck him."

    >We showed women a wide variety of bodies, including those of famous fitness models, bodybuilders, and actors. Women really did have a distaste for people who looked more like bodybuilders. Male aesthetics icons like Zyzz, Frank Zane, and even Ryan Reynolds were considered overly muscular and overly lean:

    >I understand why Zyzz and Zane were rated as too muscular. They look like bodybuilders who take performance-enhancing drugs. It’s surprising to see Ryan Reynolds there, though.

      Ryan Reynolds also has a wife who looks like this. The average respondent who fed this survey is all but certainly the equivalent of the neckbeard "elbows too pointy" meme in a woman and should be disregarded.

      Is your goal to have a body that *most* women want, or is your goal to have a body that the *best* women want? Consider the possibility that these are two different things.
