T Nation

Long Slender Look

Hey everyone,

I would like assistance with my question. Contrary to probably 90% of your body types here, I want to get that long, slender, wiry look for myself - similar to the one Brad Pitt had in “Fight Club.” I know many of you lift for size and power but I don’t think that getting bulky is good for me (Im not knocking size at all). What routines can I do and how should I structure my workouts so that I get that long,wiry, slender look without the bulk - basically I am looking for the body appearance of alot of the male models that you see in magazines…ripped and slim. I want my bodyfat to be as low as possible. Should I incorporate Pilates, yoga, etc? How should I structure my food intake? --Calories, consumption, time of consumption, etc. The MORE specific the better. I appreciate all of your help and know that asking in this forum is a great place for answers b/c you guys take this seriously and know the science behind the body. Much appreciated. Please be as specific as possible. Im 5’10, ~155-160 lbs and Id say around 8% bodyfat (just an estimate)…I wanna shed as much bodyfat as possible though.

Squats and lots of food. If you see it, eat it.

You do realize that post is 4 years old, right? Not much point flaming someone who’s not on the board anymore, huh?

Yes, let’s look at the date…and why someone would dig this old ass post up for no damn reason.

Yeah, didn’t catch that the first time…someone went a little nuts with their searching I guess.

Do you think he ever achieved his goal?

only if he did squats and ate a lot…

Like the squat and milk routine?

Maybe back then people followed the “don’t feed the trolls” advice.

I think the same should be exercised for the bumper of this thread. DONT RESPOND. Its an obvious troll bump.

I dont understand why people kept saying they wanted a body like brad pitt’s It doesn’t really look much different from any other in shape guys body.

What? Dont respond?

It looked worse. I think it was supposed to be a once healthy body that was now in rapid decline, just like the movie was about a once healthy society in decline.

My guess is that dollarmenu was searching for either “brad pitt” or “fight club” to find this post. I think that should tell you everything you need to know about him.

This is like Internet archeology - what T-Nation used to be made of - 90% of guys who DID NOT want to look like some 150 lb. dude. I would not be surprised if the numbers haven’t flipped, with 90% seeking the look most people could get after 1 year of half-way decent training and low-calorie eating. What goals!
