Body Building FIF Mortal Battle Pro/Am 2019 (Men’s Bodybuilding, Performance) – Ma Tao (China) 74 COMMENTS Today we talk about the Golden Era of Aesthetics and how to tailor your training for your goal. Training like Steve Reeves might not get you a physique like him but understanding how to customize our training for how we want to look is crucial. What do you find aesthetic?! Reply most people want to be aesthetic but they get about it in the wrong ways. Doing dips every other day and pullups everyday would give you all of this and more. Calisthenic athletes has better physiques than 99% of bodybuilders in the gym and on youtube Reply I think its really bad to tell people to do straight arm pulldowns instead of pullups. Pullups are a completely different exercise to straight arms and pullups are superior. If you can't do it then learn to do it Reply You’re NOTHING like the golden era Reply My wrists tend to hurt if I try to max out on incline bench press. Can I get similar results with decline push-ups? Reply Aesthetics is none of those individually, but a synthesis of the three, keep that in mind. In the end it just boils down to how good it looks. Simple as. Reply Hamna hamna. Reply Chest gap, rip aesthitic crew where you at? Reply good content Reply My issue with body building competitions now is that they only seem to care about size. Aesthetics should count for a lot more. Reply I think I understand. I want to train like Jeff Nippard but I’ll always be 6ft tall so it might take longer. Reply Damn From the corner of my eye I thought this was Kylo, disappointment. Reply take a shot every time Omar says "individual" Reply Problem is that many people want to get what they cant just because they cant. There are people who will never have huge legs, or will never have huge pecs, however that is what they train for. Reply Hahahaaaa Steve Reeves had a tiny waist did he,sure about that……He did not,his lats and wide shoulders gave that v taper illusion…sub 30 inch is a TINY waist,he was 31 inch,……….. Reply Like the Tee Reply 10:45 His chest seems to blend into his shoulders.Creating a horizontal line and more of a V-shape…Could you train to get that result as well?Are your chest muscles too big/rounded, turning into bumps visual speaking? Reply They forgot what a normal human body looks like. Reply Golden Age of Aesthetics aka pre-Steroids era Reply Just don't get the Steve reeves worship, he looks like a swimmer, nothing to do with bodybuilding, every teenager could have that body after ten weeks…. Enough of that bullshit worship. Reply more headpress for me! Reply they look so much hotter than bodybuilders today Reply Steroid use. Reply A friend of mine told me to try a routine and i wanna know what people think of it… Train 3 days a week, doing squats, deadlift, hip thrusts, bent over rows, bench press, over head press… Day one 8 to 12 reps 3 to 5 sets of each, one day of rest… Day two 3 to 5 reps in 3 to 5 sets, one day of rest… Day 3 15 to 30 reps in 3 to 5 sets… Then 2 days of rest… Im a martial artist amd i will probably have martial srts class on the "rest days" but i already feel like. Its no training at all for how long ive been training like that… My objective is to get bigger, heavier and stronger legs mostly… And the upper body is just to not become fully a t-rex… But oushing and pulling are very common moves in martial arts… I need the muscular endurance because rounds can be long… I need the strength because i need to have more "power" than my oponent… And i need size because it helps with the body mechanics needed to aply techniques Reply I have the body of a god Unfortunately, that god is Buddha. Reply So nobody is gonna talk about steroids during the golden age? Reply i like how everyone talks about "aesthetics" as if that is something objective. it's an opinion. and tbh, it is a fact that the huge shoulders and pecs tapering to a skinny waist looked dumb af. Reply Hi Omarlsuf, a question when you demonstarted the pull ups at 8:16-ish, is that how you do it reguraly or was that just a quick show?…My main question beacuse I've seen it by multiple people, is why do you guys stop so early on the top part of the pull up? Reply just use steroids ¦) ez way Reply Omar – my favourite juicy bodybuilder Reply I'm 34 and just decided to get into powerlifting. Until this year I had no idea that alternating or "woven" looking abs existed. I thought you either had a symmetrical 6 pack or a keg. Reply in no moment he was normal and just said person, man or guy, even if the one he's talking about is a man to thousands of men. Reply dont think it was the golden era, it was the fall Reply pumpin up muscles is a sign of weakness Reply haven't watched the video yet so sorry if I say something you mention in the video, but modern bodybuilding at some point started to equate size with aesthetics, which is why you end up with people taking so many drugs that they develop a bubble gut in search of pure size. Hell, I've heard people say that Arnold had no legs but I'd argue that his legs were far more aesthetic as a part of his physique than the mass monsters that have been around for the past 25 years. Reply Nowadays people want big butts and a good 6 pack, that's what's aesthetic have become for the casual gym goer. Reply A lot of you guys are really going to hate being so large when shit hits the fan and you don't have the required food to keep those muscles. Lean toned is the way to go. Reply wheres the link? Reply Eat a stick of butter Reply Steve Reeves was all genetics regardless of what exersizes he would look 99,99% the same. But he really won the genitic lottery body and face. Reply totally agree, that body building should be mor about esthetics… cause just building as much mass as humanly possible just looks ugly and will leave you litterally crippled with serious healthy disadvantages. Reply Dat eugene tee tho Reply Steve was always just going to be a sexy mofo. We can't all be that lucky. At any rate, I think the best way to train is for your personal needs, not necessarily to look good. If you wanna train to look good, you're going to be fighting genetics the whole way, most likely. But if you train for what you need to be good at in your life, your body has a hard goal to adapt to. As a military guy, thick legs and a thick core are great for running and rucking, among other things. Having a lot of upper body stamina also comes in handy. Aside from that, I need to strengthen everything to the point where I'm not breaking down doing whatever training I have to do. General strength and more muscle mass is all well and good, but I can't afford to risk an injury to obtain it. I happen to have a tiny waist and mostly good insertions (except for a weird defect with my upper left-hand pectoral) but what I need to become is a barrel-chested freedom-fighter, and that means copious corp work. And it's OK. At some point you have to let go of the notion that you're going to turn into Steve and just become a fitter version of yourself, ass-chest and all! Reply Reeves was just unique. The greatest physique of all time. Great vid Reply Fun fact. My father's name is Stephen Reeves Reply m/ Reply You're too loud to listen to Reply As a woman John at 2:22 has a really, Really, nice body and symmetry Reply Who ist the guy on your T-shirt? nice video! Reply Great film, now I gotta change my training plan. Btw what's song at the outro? Reply Steve Reeves Era is the Silver Era Reply My grandma thinks ur hot! Reply You're no Steve Reeves pal. Reply If it is about the aesthetics then maybe the people who currently judge competitions are not qualified? Reply Seeing Omars legs reminds me I need to go to the supermarket and buy some chicken. Reply Who's that guy in the thumbnail, he's HANDSOME Reply sooooo no legs or abs? got it coach Reply Am I the only one who thinks all these old bodybuilders just look freaking weird. Like that's not a human looking body Reply I really like that he emphasizes the fact that things vary from person to person. He doesn´t sell you the ´this routine is the only way to do it´ BS. Reply Nice analogy, but almost 12 minutes video, you don´t mention about legs training or cardio , that was not specifics, but always necessary so that goals were achieved a whole body work Reply King of aesthetics: 1993 flex wheeler Reply Thanks for the lecture, bud! It was very insightful and encouraging to boot. I'll be continuing going to the gym with those core exercises in mind. Reply https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHFRozFfpBM Reply This Ali-baba is so funny looking, even though he has some size he looks like a small dog covered in turds :'DDD Reply Nobody speaks the truth. You don't want to tell the people that food is polluted now. Before it was not the case, and that is the reason why people have problem with digestive system. Reply I have a classmate who looks and sounds exactly like you and his name is Omar. Crazy Reply they did forget about flabs Reply I remember reading that Steve Reeves recommending that the traps not be overdeveloped, because in his opinion it made the person look round-shouldered. Reply I think we just have to admit that us guys these days dint have the testicular fortitude those guys had back in the day. We have too many technologies draining our test levels, our lifestyles are much more easy… the list goes on. We just cant compete with the men of the 50s and 60s even to the 80s. They just weren't subjugated to the frequencies we are with our cellphone next to our balls all day Reply I love your point about using a bicep exercise that you FEEL working and stick with it. I have been doing this with various other body parts and my exercise selection has changed dramatically. I no longer bench press, or overhead press, but instead I use the decline hammer strength machine, and a cable incline press which I feel works not just my upper chest better than barbell or incline, but also destroys my front delts! For lat pulldowns I am using 2 cable handles which hits my lats so much better than a lat pull down bar. Reply I read somewhere Reeves said dont work obliques cause dont let the V shape you believe is true the exercises for obliques dont give V shape? Βut i believe my waist is not small are bigger Reply why dont we talk about the crap people take lets be honest drugs make the biggest difference Reply the guys from the old pictures look waaaay more natural than the steroid monsters these days. and don`t say, they are natural gifted. they are on roids, and everyone knows this. they are as natural gifted as lance armstrong. Reply You look like Tsukasa from Dr.Stone with your hair down. Reply Leave a Reply to Mitchell Gillett Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
