Are You Built For Show?

Building.

I was out with one of my close lady friends on Friday night and she was telling me about a recent trip to Chicago where two guys tried to pick up her and her friend in an elevator. I said, “So what happened?”

I realized that was the end of the story.

She stares me right in the eye and slowly shakes her head in grave disappointment and finally says, “You men need to learn how to step up your game!” I actually burst out laughing, probably because I thought to myself, “It’s so true.”

That conversation could not have been more timely because I’m in the middle of reading my buddy, Nate Green’s book called Built for Show that was just released today on Amazon. Built for Show is the first book to address young men on the prowl and it’s not only written for them but it’s written by one.

I always took pride in being one of the “young gun” fitness professionals on the scene but Nate takes the crown.  He’s only 23 years old and has been quoted in Men’s Health, and Stack Magazine and a regular contributor to Men’s Fitness and T-Nation.com.

Before you read any further, check out this 60 second video Nate did in the Las Vegas airport with a bunch of young ladies after he asked them, “What’s your favorite body part on a man?”

I talked to Nate on the phone the other night and I asked him why he was inspired to write this book and he said, Guys work out to get girls, but most fitness media focus on building body parts women don’t respond to. So, really, most guys are training to impress other guys. Which is fine, if that’s your thing—you know, I have an ego, too. But there’s a whole different set of rules to play by if you want to build a body that automatically flips a girl’s attraction switch. And what guy doesn’t want that?”

I would agree.  Take a look at the current men’s magazines and notice what’s on the covers – not just the “muscle rags”, but all of them. You’ll see a ton of references to biceps, ripped abs, and a bigger chest. But those are three body parts women don’t really care about.  Nate will tell you that if you go back in time, you’ll find that women are biologically programmed to be attracted to men who show more status and dominance. One way to show that dominance is to have an imposing, strong body. But the cornerstone for this physique starts with the Goods. If you get the Goods, you can get the girl.

So what are the Goods?

“Biologically, the impression of strength…evolved from a verebrate-wide dominance posture used by fish, reptiles, mammals, and primates. To appear physically powerful, men and other males with backbones display expanded versions of themselves to loom larger than they truly are,” writes David Givens, Ph.D and author of Love Signals: A Practical Field Guide to the Body Language of Courtship, “Their size and silhouette when squared define a physically commanding posture called the broadside display.”

I decided to do some research on this myself and founda recent study in the Archives of Sexual Behavio also reveals that women are most attracted to mesomorphic men who have a hip-to-waist ratio of 0.9 and shoulders that measure 1.6 times the size of their waist; the classic V-shape.

And a study of thousands of women by psychologist David Buss confirms that women are universally attracted to men who offer physical protection.

So what is Nate trying to tell you?

Take a look at your training and ask yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing. I know this might sound sacrilegious, but maybe your quest for the ultimate six-pack, biggest guns, or becoming so big that you frighten small children aren’t the greatest goals for you after all. If you want girls, and you want a capable, athletic, muscular body, then Built for Show was written for you.

Since Nate is an up and coming super star (IMO, he already is), I wanted to help him out and give his book as much exposure as possible since his program is so closely related to mine.  Nate is huge believer in “classic bodybuilding” with full boy routines before the sport got contaminated with steroids.

I spoke with Nate and we agreed that in a few weeks, after you get a chance to read the book, we’ll have a 60 minute teleseminar and both weigh in on some fun topics like:

  • Muscle growth for skinny guys.
  • Body parts girls like most and Nate’s results after interviewing a bunch of girls on this.
  • “Hook up” tips – we’re not dating experts but I’ve got a few “deal closers” to share.
  • Realistic nutrition and supplementation tips.

To get in on the call, YOU MUST, send an email to [email protected] with your Amazon order – this is a private call as a bonus gift from Nate and I for supporting his new book.

We’ll probably unmute the lines and take a few questions too so this will be a pretty fun conversation we have that you’re not going to want to miss.

For now, grab your copy of his book.  Nate even talks about how to pick out the right clothing to show off your body and includes a fall, winter, spring and summer training program.

  1. While I agree that having a nice body is appealing to women, after all, men are attracted to a nice body as well; success with women is a skill-set that can be taught and learned. It is possible to have the whole package and never have a problem meeting and keeping a great girl.

    I personally have never had a problem meeting and getting to great looking women. I grew up with five sisters and the opposite sex was never a mystery to me, however, I stumbled across a book and an alternative lifestyle community called pick-up artists (PUA’s) that has opened my eyes to a whole other world.

    I recommend “The Game” by Neil Strauss to anyone, male or female who wants to learn more.

  3. YES! Women and girls are all over fashion my friends. Get some good close and shoes, but make sure the hair is a good style for your face and head structure. Some guys just need a makeover and some confidence. Really, if you exude confidence without being arrogant, you will get girls all the time as long as you can carry on a conversation. Humor goes a long way. 😉

    In my experience, women prefer confidence, well mannered descent looking guy with a good sense humor. Physically, they prefer broad shoulders, nice butt, and thick legs, but don’t forget about a well groomed appearance in nice clothes. Think of it as the “whole package” instead of just a nice body.

    I have been married to a very picky Cuban wife for over 11 years and she is very honest. I think Nate is getting very close to the truth here. 🙂

    ok! usually you don’t meet girls when you are topless, so how could you show the V shape anyways. a stretchy small size shirt is also discussing to girls!

    an average looking guy with the correct communication skills could attract the hottest (at least average minded) girl in the world.

    You’re right – unless you’re on the beach, you can’t go walking around without a shirt on to try and impress girls. That’s why in Built for Show I have two entire chapters on fashion, helping skinny guys look bigger, bigger guys look skinnier and more muscular, and guys who are already “built for show” polish up their wardrobe.

    It’s more of a lifestyle/workout book.

    Still, it’s very possible for a girl to see “what you look like underneath your clothes” while you have clothes on. It’s all in what body parts are accentuated and how you carry yourself. Sadly, most guys don’t do either.

  5. Six hot looking probable hooker/golddigger women in the Vegas airport don’t impress me with their opinions, assuming they would reveal their true feelings to a strange man with a camera. Fun to watch though.

    Be how you want to be, if you can, and let the superficial type women find other victims to divorce. The intellectual type women are really much more fun, if they haven’t been excessively brainwashed. Non-conformists are the best. Go to a rainbow gathering and take your shirt off.

  8. Well we got the answer:

    The classic V shape is MUCH more attractive to women than “just” looking huge and muscular. Guess we skinny guys do have an advantage with our smaller waist afterall.

    See ya in the gym boys 😉

    You’re right — girls definitely do not want to see a beer gut!

    That’s why Built for Show focuses on a strong, chiseled mid-section (like a professional athlete).

    No beer guts allowed.

    (From a lot of research and talking with a lot of girls, though, I’ve found out that most of them think the really ripped six packs are disgusting. It’s not my thought — just theirs. And I think theirs is more important!)

  10. Yeah I don’t know, maybe girls do fall for that huge V and broad shoulders when you are wearing clothes but when you strip and you have a pot belly…I think they much rather see a six pack there and defined body then a beer gut.
