One physique that we both agree on as one of the top-five greatest of all time is Bob Paris…
No, Bob Paris wasn’t the biggest—and he didn’t have a freaky body part, but that’s part of the reason why—his proportions and symmetry were absolute perfection. It all fit together as a perfect whole. Hell, he even looked incredible just standing around backstage…
Of course, your training can only take your physique so far. That’s because how you develop depends on genetics. But, as we’ve said in the past, if you scrutinize your physique often and strive to build the weak areas and downplay the strong ones, plus create “illusions,” you too can get close to becoming a living, breathing work of art like Bob Paris.
What do we mean by “illusions”? For example, if you have a wide waist, focus on building shoulder width by beefing up your medial deltoid heads. A good place to start is training a muscle from the three designated angles, or positions, of flexion, it requires. We call it POF.
A shoulder POF program would be dumbbell presses (midrange), one-arm cable laterals (stretch), and seated laterals or dumbbell upright rows (contracted)…
Notice that POF attacks the 3 key hypertrophy triggers for optimal mass stimulation, according to Brad Schoenfeld, Ph.D.:
1) Mechanical tension (with multi-joint, heavier training) = POF MIDRANGE: squats, bench presses, etc.
2) Metabolic stress (by blocking blood flow during sufficient tension time for cell swelling) = POF CONTRACTED: leg extensions, machine flyes, etc.
3) Muscle damage (via microtears in the fibers) = POF STRETCH: sissy squats, DB flyes, etc.
