  • Pear Shape: Men with this shape are larger in the hips and thighs than in the chest and arms. The arms and chest are petite.
  • Hourglass Shape:This is considered as the perfect shape for women but men with this shape need not worry that they have a girly figure. Many football players have an hourglass shape; that is they have small waists and hips, and broad shoulders and muscular thighs.
  • Ruler Shape: if you are ruler shaped it means that you are probably pretty thin, and have minimal muscle build up.
  • Apple Shape: Men with this body shape have larger chest and arms, and a small waist.  They have a small butt and legs and may look like they have a heavy top.
  • Muscular body:The ideal or best shape for a man is like an upside-down triangle. Men with this body shape have broad shoulders and a solid muscular chest and a smaller lower body.

Plan your exercise

Many of us make a decision to burn the extra fat and get a body that is lean and muscular, but most of us leave the plan midway. Plan your exercises based on your shape and weight (whether you are underweight or obese, and what kind of shape do you want). It is essential that you make realistic goals while planning your body shape. You have to decide if you want to get a better general condition, shape and wellness or improve to get the perfect body appearance. You are more likely to stick to a moderate exercise program that you enjoy. Make an exercise schedule to improve your muscle mass and strength, general well being and health, and the flexibility and agility of your body. The main purpose of your exercise should be to lose the extra weight and burn the extra calories, if you are obese.

Plan your diet

For weight loss, it is important to limit calorie intake specifically according to your body type and structure. Consult your doctor before you start dieting. Limit calories according to the requirement of your body and do regular exercise to burn calories, which are stored in your body as fat. The diet you eat should give you adequate amount of calories and the nutrients needed (such as proteins, vitamins and minerals). Dieting can have negative and even harmful effect on the body, if it is deficient in proteins, vitamins and minerals. Gradually, reduction in the calorie intake is recommended.


The secret to get the perfect body shape is to do everything from A to Z, from your breakfast to your workouts to rest and long sleep. Remember that there are no shortcuts and needs self-discipline and determination. There is no magic spell, which can give you a great body. Follow your trainer’s recommendations for practice comprising of weightlifting, strength training, coherence training, weight precision etc and diet.
