In this post, I am going to talk about having a physique that stands out. We all know that standing out and looking good is beneficial, obviously.
I wanted to write about this particular topic because a lot of guys have a misconception on what “standing out” means.
Standing out does not mean you look like a 300 pound meathead who is pumping his veins full of steroids and gear.
Here is my definition of standing out: muscular body, less than 10% body fat, wide shoulders, skinny waist, athletic looking, sharp jaw line, clean haircut, and good style. We could call it “The Movie Star Look” or “The Superhero Look”.
In this article I am going to give you 3 simple components to focus on so YOU can start standing out.
The bottom line is it doesn’t really matter what you call it. If you are building muscle to attract women… then this type of physique is golden.
Benefits of Having a Good Physique That Stands Out
This past weekend me & one of my buddies visited Kansas City. I always love going out in different cities to meet attractive girls. It’s quite a bit of fun.
I ended up meeting a few different girls that I enjoyed hanging with.
I honestly don’t really go out that often anymore because it takes a lot out of me. But hitting nightlife in new cities is literally one of my favorite things to do.
It amazes me how far I have come in regards to this area of my life. Whenever I go out… I get straight up starred at by a lot of different girls. This happened multiple times this past weekend (especially with the 2nd girl I met).
I never used to get these types of looks from girls. Like ever. After years of building my confidence and body it’s almost like it happens automatically now. This is a benefit & example of having a good physique.
Both of the girls I met were saying stuff like: “You are just so confident aren’t you?” or “Do you say this to all the girls?”
Also I was hearing things like “Mr. Man”, “Mr. Jaw Line”, “Player”, “You’re funny”, etc.
Now to be fair… this stuff goes far beyond physical appearance (it’s called game).
But I am TELLING YOU that once you look a certain way you will be able to get initial attraction from girls (having great style helps too).
Girls can easily sense when a guy is confident. As the old saying goes… when you look good, you feel good, you play good.
This is why I am such a proponent of looking the best you can. Girls will absolutely stare at you and give you CLEAR GREEN LIGHTS that they want you to go approach them. You just got to be smart!
Most all girls want guys to go up and initiate the conversation with them. If you look really good… sometimes they will come up to you. But not often. It’s our job to initiate and lead the conversation… period.
Why do you think one of the girls I met was calling me “Mr. Man”? It’s obvious because I look and act like one! We live in an age where a majority of men have forgotten how to act with charisma.
That’s part of the reason I started this website… it’s because I’ve been there myself! Life is so much better when you build confidence to go after the things you want.
How do I start to stand out Drew? Keep reading & I’ll give you 3 easy things for you to focus on.
Having a Physique That Stands Out: Jawline (Focus Area #1)
See the difference here? This is a really important point to understand in having a physique that stands out.
I took that picture on the left today as I was writing this article. Yea, yea, yea… it’s a goofy picture. But you can absolutely see my facial features and jaw line.
The guy on the right is me about 4.5 years ago. Look how FAT my face was then compared to how it is now. I look like a completely different person in the first picture.
Most guys literally have NO IDEA what their facial features looks like. Once you get to under 10% body-fat you will realize that you haven’t seen your jaw line for your whole life!
A major, major, major component to having an overall physique that stands out is a jaw line that can be seen.
Right now I am taking on the challenge of 75 Hard so my diet is dialed in. Currently I’m on day 4 of the challenge and excited to see where it takes me. I recommend you check it out as well.
You will make a lot of progress on your jawline when you lift weights. HOWEVER, you will not get one like mine above unless you know how to diet properly.
How do I diet properly? Easy. Do intermittent fasting and / or cut out processed carbs and sugar. We are supposed to eat food that comes from the earth.
This includes…. steak, chicken, ground beef, fish, fruits, vegetables, etc. Drink at least a gallon of water per day as well.
If you stick to this type of diet in conjunction with intermittent fasting you’ll really start to see an improvement in your face.
Having a Physique That Stands Out : 3D Muscle (Focus Area #2)
Here is another picture I took today as I was writing this article.
Do you see the “pop” in my arms and shoulders? After accumulated time hitting the gym hard you will start to develop this 3 dimensional look.
I don’t look like a 350 pound maniac. I’ve got an athletic build with 3D muscle (this is what you want).
I’m also 100% natural in this picture (aka no PEDs). I am however on creatine and protein. But I’m not on SARMs like I’ve been in the past.
If you take SARMs like Ostarine and LGD-4033 it’s a great way to get this 3D look very quickly. The nice thing about SARMs too is that you won’t look like a freak on steroids. You will keep a lean and muscular frame.
If you are staying natural… it will take some time to look this way. There is no secret or quick fix (although SARMs may help quite a bit).
The best thing you can do is hit the gym hard and follow a diet that works for you. Your muscles will NEVER look 3D if you have a high body fat percentage.
Having a low body fat percentage is the most important component to having a physique that stands out.
Having a Physique that stands out: Be Athletic Looking (Focus Area #3)
Who would you rather strive to look like?
On the left we have Javier Baez who is a stud MLB player for the Chicago Cubs. Guy clearly has lean muscle and he looks incredibly athletic.
The guy on the right looks like he would pop his arms if he tried to touch his back. He also looks like he could never be good at a sport in a million years.
This one is pretty obvious to me. But hey, some people have their preference on how they want to look.
My point is that having lean muscle while also being athletic looking is also a big part of having a physique that stands out.
If you are an athlete like me… you’ll want to maintain this type of look. Why do you think athletes always get the most attractive girls? They have confidence and look good.
To me I’ve never really understood guys who want to look like the dude on the right. You literally can’t be good at sports when you look like that. It doesn’t really look that great either.
I know that everything isn’t all about appearance and looks. I’ve said before… character and who you are is certainly more important than outward appearance.
But your quality of life will improve if you work hard and develop a physique that stands out.
I also covered this topic with wide variety. A lot of people don’t think of having a lean jaw line when it comes to building muscle and having a good physique.
I think it’s important to look at things from a broad perspective… “how can I improve this area in my life as best as possible?”
That’s an essential key to understand when it comes to self improvement. Literally be the best you can at everything you do.
When you focus on building muscle… make sure you become better looking as well.
Keep crushing it my friend!
