My idea of Ideal Physique

So, you’re obese, fatty, trying to slim down?

Or, you’re a skinny monkey trying to pack on some meat?

What is an Ideal Physique, and realistically achievable? What is your gauge or reference?

Normal BMI – I know you’re going to say this, however BMI is almost useless, as it doesn’t tell what percentage of fat or muscles you have. You can be in ‘healthy’ zone, but made-up with mostly fat, which is actually unhealthy.

Sportsmen Physique – Yes, but what kind of sports? A swimmer body? A sumo wrestler body? Different sports will result in different body; or sometimes, the preferred body type is pre-selected for certain sports. So what kind of sportsman body do you want?

Personally, I use a rule-of-thumb (applicable to most males, unless you’re extremely short or tall).

The formula is this (regardless of race, language, or religion):

To look decently fit, sporty, athletic, one should be at least:

  • Height (cm) – 100 = Weight (kg), and, with reasonable┬ábody fat percentage.

For myself, I would look decent if my weight is at least:

  • 175cm – 100 = 75kg

Of course, if you like to follow the contemporary trend of skinny / slim physique like those K-Pop celebrities, up to you. I’m in no position to judge you. ­čÖé

To each his own.

What’s this blog about?

There are already so many health and fitness blogs out there. What’s so special about this one?

Often, beginners have absolutely NO IDEAL on how to kick-start their healthy lifestyle and/or fitness journey, be it fat-loss, put on muscles, ‘toning’, or just want to be ‘fit’.

Many resort to hearsay, articles published on papers / magazines, half-true / outdated medical researches, modern myths.

Or, overload themselves with myriad of informations from the internet and books, of which, some are true, some are not so, and some are just bullshit.

I, have gone thru the learning process (and am still learning continuously), and have transformed my once crappy body to a more decent physique. In fact, best body ever in my life.

I want to share my understanding in a SIMPLE, CONCISE, and easily UNDERSTANDABLE way, so that you don’t have to go thru the hard way like me (unless you have the interest to learn those details in-depth).

If uncle can do it, you can do better.
