However, whether you believe it or not, the ideal body type for man has changed throughout history as well. What was once perceived as the perfect body or men has evolved throughout history and the differences have been drastic.

    In the 70’s it was enough to just be thin or average. In the 80’s it was about being body builder big. Nowadays it’s about lean muscle and definition.

    Body types

    When it was difficult to be fat, being fat was popular. Now that it’s difficult to be in shape, being in shape is popular.
    Unless you’re a woman. In which case, no matter how you look, or how much or how little effort you put into your appearance, you’re "perfect".

  24. tired law student on November 4, 2021 at 2:42 pm

    as a woman I don’t get it… the thing people have with muscles, honestly it’s the last thing I care about a man; just be healthy and confident in your skin and you’ll be fine



  25. Mr. Ghost on November 4, 2021 at 2:43 pm

    I am going to die alone but that’s okay.



  26. JoJoHala on November 4, 2021 at 2:44 pm

    Building that much of muscle and losing that much of fat is not so possible even for beginners. I have been training for the past 3 years and I am no where near those guys. Later I found out that this is all anabolics shit these guys have been using and claiming to be natural



  27. parash4059 on November 4, 2021 at 2:47 pm

    Seth rollins has the perfect body



  28. KatoLove24 on November 4, 2021 at 2:49 pm

  29. Joseph Perkins on November 4, 2021 at 2:51 pm

    Lol actually you can get developed like the ancient greeks including the Apollon belt…example google Eugen Sandow



  30. Jonathon is ZA BEST JOESTAR! on November 4, 2021 at 2:51 pm

    I just wanna have that heroin chic look but also be a little muscular and toned bruh.



  31. Joseph Perkins on November 4, 2021 at 2:53 pm

    Yeh in the late 1800s Eugen Sandow started the more athletic look for men



  32. SleepNo More on November 4, 2021 at 2:53 pm

    Dad bods are interesting since mom bods are seen as repulsive but we revere a men in any form. It fits well with the patriarchy and mysogyny of society that we adore one and shame the other.



  33. that kid on November 4, 2021 at 2:53 pm

    Well…. seeing these dudes tells me I should give up now 😂😭



  34. Furqan Tarique on November 4, 2021 at 2:55 pm

    1990s – nowadays



  35. Sylvia Young on November 4, 2021 at 2:56 pm

    To me the sexiest part of the male body is the shoulder’s from behind…thick, strong, manly. Then the arms, strong and powerful so you feel safe and secure in them! Long body and legs that are just amazing! Then beautiful eyes and sexy, pouty lips just full enough to melt you…..yeah I married that guy 32 years ago! I’m getting old and he’s becoming distinguished….I used to be so gorgeous but as a mamma and grandma, wife , housewife, career girl and all that goes with it…well we get old! If you’re as lucky as me he will love you eternally and still see the beauty that was, is and shall always be. God bless to all!



  36. The List on November 4, 2021 at 2:56 pm

    Which style do you see becoming popular again for "the look" for men?



  37. Annacall9000 on November 4, 2021 at 2:58 pm

    okay my turn



  38. New Dawn Gaming on November 4, 2021 at 3:01 pm

    Being physically fit is sexy no matter the body



  39. Kim Jong on November 4, 2021 at 3:01 pm

    Dad bods is vomit worth



  40. Zaid Hernandez on November 4, 2021 at 3:04 pm

    Man…charles atlas sounds like me.. literally exactly like me, the 95 and everything I’ve gained around 10 pounds of muscle and since Im a ectomorph I look huge🤭 gotta love the ups and downs of genetics



  41. Ronald P on November 4, 2021 at 3:06 pm

    Obviously the Greeks were right. Everyone else is just lazy.



  42. Ja Ich on November 4, 2021 at 3:06 pm

    What about a handsome brain?



  43. Annacall9000 on November 4, 2021 at 3:06 pm

  45. catalot on November 4, 2021 at 3:07 pm

    My favorite body type is healthy.



  46. angel91485 on November 4, 2021 at 3:08 pm

    Men are really more physically attractive, of course women wont admit it, & there’s stigma for men to say it..but even in the animal kingdom, the males are more physically striking, Lions have manes, Stags got beautiful antlers, Birds have colorful feathers, Rams got nice horns etc.



  47. Ici Cest Rose Hill on November 4, 2021 at 3:11 pm

    Its much more easy for any girl to be ‘beautiful’ right now, than for men.
    See, since at least 8 or 10 years… round girls are considered hot, while it was not always the case. It started with hip hop music videos(big fat a**), which put girls like that(that few years ago would be considered fat) on the fashion map. For us men, being slim ,fit and muscular in a metrosexual era…its always going to be more difficult to maintain. For girls, a few pounds of surplus its not even noticeable these days. The girl just has to put on a legging…
    Also there is much more stuffs available now like make up things for girls..its much more easy and available to anyone in any place on earth with also things like manicures, pedicures…hairstyles etc. Us men, no option as we have to hit the gym.
    Physically its more easy to be considered hot for a woman than a man.



  48. Annacall9000 on November 4, 2021 at 3:15 pm

    okay my turn



  49. Ramon Benitez on November 4, 2021 at 3:15 pm

    From around 10,000 to 8,000 years ago I believe those who were more fit were the preferable ones as many people still lived hunter gatherer life styles
