Finding the Routine: Building A Model Body

In the male model world fitness models are few and far between. In this category of male models, they are working constantly to present themselves as a whole, an interesting face framed by an outstanding physique. Fitness models have to keep up with the correct workout and continue body building to maintain their appeal not only to the modeling agencies across the board but also to the general public; and to keep the paychecks coming in.

The key to success when you are a fitness model is to maintain your body's perfect harmony. Too bulky and you'll lose some of the appeal of mass-market that a modeling agency is looking for and if you are too lean you'll end up only being viable to model for modeling agencies that deal with runner magazines and long-distance athletics.  Finding and keeping a workout to balance the proportion between large muscle and lean muscle is very important for fitness models.

Weight lifting is just the beginning. Male models also need to spend some serious time doing cardiovascular exercises. Usually around 15 minutes before a workout or 30 minutes on a non-workout day, is just the right amount of cardio that can get fitness models primed up to burn fat and develop muscles. This helps as well to smooth and lean out muscle that you have been building. Doing cardio will sculpt muscles to bless you with that look modeling agencies are searching for in their star male models.

Cardio alone just won't get the job done!  Fitness models should be concentrating on their pecs, quads, triceps, biceps and especially their abs.  It is important for every male fitness model to focus on all of the muscles mentioned above in order to follow a complete fitness program.  Although there is no perfect system to achieve stellar results, a good rule of thumb for the big muscle groups is to train with smaller sets, use hard weights, train them hard and never do them consecutively. For underwear model abs, structured sit-ups and twists are you best bet.

You can completely forget about all the above, and most modeling agencies taking the time to look to you, if you do not eat properly.  A good, clean diet (avoiding junk food, alcohol, etc.) is vital for your modeling career.  Many aspiring male models find it beneficial to include whole, natural foods into their diet, as well as protein and other appropriate supplements, as needed.  There are many resources available for healthy, balanced diets so do your research.  In the end, it will help your career, body and overall appearance.
