The ideal male physique tends to be outside the reach of the common man. The Adonis Golden Ratio (the “brother” workout program of the Venus Factor) has sought to change that. After a decade of in depth research by a panel of experts, the Ratio was born. Using the classical male shape presented in Greek statuary, the goal is for the man to meet very specific measurements of the body. Research concluded that these measurements would result in the male body transforming into an Adonis-like structure.
To begin, a man needs only measuring tape and a calculator. The Adonis Golden Ratio measurements will include the following:
- Shoulder to shoulder
- Circumference of the waist
The shoulder measurement multiplied by 0.447 is the ideal waist measurement of a man of this height. Take the shoulder measurement and divide it by the waist measurement for the ideal ratio between shoulder and waist. The Adonis Golden Ratio is designed to create a V-shape with the waist tapering down from the shoulder to the hips. A combination of the specially designed Adonis workout and diet is meant to help a man achieve the ratio that carves his body into an Adonis.
The Adonis Golden Ratio Program
The premise of the Adonis Golden Ratio is founded upon the belief that the perfect body is imprinted on a man’s DNA, and the regimen provides a man with the tools to shape his body into what it has always been meant to be. Discipline and hard work are the keys to success, but the task is not insurmountable. The further away from their ideal ratio a man is, the more difficult the process can be, but there are tips on what to avoid to make it easier. Avoid the following mistakes:
- Never start with weight training to lose
- Do not eat processed foods
- Don’t bulk up before getting into shape
If a man needs to lose excess pounds before building muscle, then lose the weight first. The end result that he is seeking may be a cut and ripped version of the body he has now, but this won’t happen with loose fat. Diet and exercise to lose weight before working on bulking up. “I had to lose 21 pounds before I was in a place to begin building muscle,” Justin Cox, a fitness trainer from Austin, Texas said. “I now train other guys using the Adonis Golden Ratio.”
