    Modern male physic and Greek body

    Dear Darbee Im strugling with a little bit over developed legs because since i was kid i was training different sport and diets plans so i end up a bit unproportus upper/lower body. Is there any straight formula to look more atractive uk a visible sweet sexy proportion body. As a male i have wide shoulders but my upper body isnt that muscular compared to my lower body and i gain muscle easly by workout legs.Iv tryed almost everthing. Im currently fit shaped but not in shape that i want to be. Which program should i pick in your opinion and should i eat in deficit. Im somewhere there in between begginer and advenced athlet. I can do 30 push ups 15 wide pull ups 100 sit ups 100 squats i can run 5km its normal nothing much. But no matter i do my leg muscles keep growing Im so confused now because the only thing that helps is like not eating for 25 days which is harmful. OMAD and a light fulld body strenght workout (legs only aerobic exercises) also helped me alot. But is there any straight formula which will grant me best results and i like to workout its my hobby also having pretty good eating habbits and i enjoy them i dont struggle with activities and nutrition.

    Stefaniscrazy ... I don't know how to reduce the size of your legs. My understanding is that you may well be able to increase the size of a group of muscles, but no way you can reduce the amount of fat in a specific area.

    However ... welcome to The Hive, the social side of DareBee.
    If you focus on upper body exercise, it may not reduce the size of your legs, but might restore the balance of your look.

    Best of luck.

      Stefaniscrazy, welcome to the Hive!

      Considering your overdeveloped leg muscles I suggest simply doing less leg work and more upper body exercises. I.e. per week you may do three workouts with two devoted to upperbody only and one for the full body. After some time your leg muscles should become visibly smaller in size due to extensive growth of the upper ones and your overall physique will be more balanced.

        I think too many people make the mistake of looking at bodybuilding magazines to see the so called ultimate physiques. We are tricked into believing they are healthy and that's how we should look. I have been around many extremely fit people all my life in sports, the military and law enforcement and I can tell you that one in a thousand people looked like those models in magazines. Fit, healthy people come in all shapes and sizes. Much of this is not only dependent on your type of training but also genetics. Some could train a life time and never achieve an aesthetic physique. I have also known some people who are world record holders in fitness and they look very average. So my advice to you is exercise for your health, be happy, heat health and don't look at bodybuilding stuff unless you want to be a bodybuilder.

          Hi Stefaniscrazy , welcome to the hive! Your "problem" is a bit funny because normally I see people with huge upper bodys and so called "chicken legs". Pesonally I always think that big legs (I do not mean bodybuilder-style!) put more proportion to someones physique. So as you mention that you have wide shoulders I think that puts your legs in a good relation and your full body in good proportion. But without a photo this is hard to say. Nevertheless I totally agree with Cowtownbaldie when it comes to genetics and real fitness. As you mentioned your fitness-stats I am impressed that sounds to me really fit! And as Cowtownbaldie wrote genectics are a given thing: I know people who work a lot on their legs but do not grow in size in relation to their upper body. Personally I grow visibly more on the upper body: when I start to put more emphasis on push ups and pull ups my shape is visibly changing. But with more priority on my legs (squats and lunges) they lack a bit behind - but when I was playing soccer (lots of running) I was the one in my team with the most cardiovascular- and strenght-endurance. That was what I needed back then. I would recommand to be patient, increase your fitness stats and probably invest more time in running if this could slime your legs. In any case: enjoy it and have fun!

            Bodybuilding is focus on aesthetic (others achievement are complementary of such a goal). If you goal is the aesthetic one, you should training as bodybuilder (i.e. workout and diet).
            However, if you consider that your lower body is more developed that your upper body, simply you have to analyse your training planning. You have only to "balance" the upper/lower training . In particular, "decreasing" the lower body work.

              Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

                Modern Pro Bodybuilding is a joke! Steroids and Insulin and many other drugs taken to look the way they do. The guys in the magazines are not "real people"...they are enhanced. That's why I really don't think people should support this as the ultimate physique. Rather do athletic moves and a clean diet to bring out the best natural physique one can by natural means. If you try to do the bodybuilding workouts featured by the pros you will fail because they are juicing it hard to recover quicker than normal men. Look at fighters for an example...many have excellently developed physiques and I can tell you from being a former fighter...they don't train anything like a bodybuilder.

                  Cowtownbaldie I completely agree with you.
                  I am not following the (current) bodybuilding, because I am not interested in it. It's clear the difference in athlete who belong to the "natural" leagues (i.e. where there are antidoping tests) and the other ones.
                  Anyway, when you say some word record holder have a "normal" physics, I was thinking about Tazio Il Biondo the Italian Butterfly. He holds several world records (the last one is major number of one arm pull ups in 3 h, i.e. 422). In many training system, the aesthetic aspect is a side effect not the main goal. In general, the main goal is the performance.
