Muscles To Build To Look More Masculine

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Have you ever noticed that some men have a combination of masculine features that set them apart from everyone else?

You can’t quite put your finger on it, but something about them screams confidence, muscularity, and ‘manliness.’

What if we were to tell you that achieving this masculine look is entirely possible? In fact, you don’t have to build a fantastic physique to achieve this effect; all you need to do is develop several specific muscle groups.

The Trap Most People Fall For

When most men get interested in fitness, one of their first goals is to get a solid six-pack. Granted, there is nothing wrong with that goal, and abs will forever be attractive.

But, what most people neglect to realize is that, while impressive, your abs remain covered for 95+ percent of your life, and most people will never see them. Unless, of course, you’re into the habit of walking everywhere shirtless.

But, the truth is, there are other things we can focus on to create a masculine and attractive build.

The Muscle Groups That Make A Huge Difference In Our Appearance

For the most part, several muscle groups make a much more significant difference in our overall appearance. Yet, most guys who are interested in developing an aesthetic and masculine look rarely look at them. These are your:

  • Neck
  • Trapezius
  • Upper back
  • Shoulders

Let’s take a look at a couple of photos where the importance of a developed neck shows. The first one is of Barack Obama:

As you can see, without changing anything else, Barack looks a whole lot more jacked on the right, even while wearing a suit. Here is another example:

This is an even more prominent example, as his neck development makes a night and day difference in his overall look.

Now, let’s take a look at a few other examples. In the following photo, despite having a great physique, this model is severely hindered by a pencil neck on the left:

I’m sure you’ll agree that he looks multiple times better with a well-developed neck.

And here is an example of how well-developed shoulders can completely change the way you appear:

Granted, Lazar looked much better overall on the right, but you can see how his shoulders make a tremendous difference.

And finally, we have a photo of how good back development can completely transform a person’s physique:

As you can see, having abs is great. But, most people will rarely get to see them. On the other hand, developed back, shoulders, and neck will always look amazing, especially with a well-fitting shirt.

Two Simple Workouts You Can Do To Improve Your Build Drastically

Before we wrap up this post, let’s take a look at two routines you can do to develop your shoulders, neck, and upper back further:

Workout #1

Body weight pull-ups – 5 sets of as many reps as you can

Lying forward and back neck flexion – 3 sets of as many reps as you can

Lateral dumbbell raises – 5 sets of 15 to 25 reps

Workout #2

Inverted rows – 5 sets of as many reps as you can

Pike push-ups – 5 sets of as many reps as you can

*Loaded lateral neck flexion – 3 sets of as many reps as you can

neck flexion

*For this particular exercise, it’s best to start without any weight. You can do these by lying on your side in your bed. Do as many reps as you can for both sides, and only after you get to 100 straight reps, consider adding weight such as a small plate or dumbbell.

The best part is, you can do these two workouts on top of your already existing program as a way of adding even more training volume. And, if you get yourself a home pull-up bar and a pair of adjustable dumbbells, you can do these exercises (and many others) in the comfort of your home.

Learn how I maneuver my way through tinder. I first made my tinder account in 2016 hoping to get laid like everyone one else. I barely got 1-5 matches a day and the women I matched with were not interested in me and barely wanted to hang out outside of the app.

Throughout my online tinder journey, I stumbled onto the red pill. Within time, I started to better understand what women are receptive to and now have a better understanding of what they’re looking for when online dating.

That’s when I started to have more and more success. I’m not trying to exaggerate at all when I say I can make a tinder an account, meet someone, and get laid the same week with no issues at all.

There’s no special gimmicks, pickup lines, or anything like that. This is straight to the point and as simplified as possible. I use the same convo script for every conversation with mild changes on each individual and it works.
