I know there are Discovery Channel programs saying the ideal ratio of attractiveness is like .74 or something like that, and that many people here train primarily to look attractive. Does anyone use this as a guide for their routine beyond a vague goal of some kind of V torso?
Also, does anybody have any good links on this topic??[/quote]
I think you’re talking about waist-to-hip ratio in women. .7 is what most men like.
Here’s a quote and the link for more
“Worldwide men of diverse backgrounds, ethnicity and ages have ranked women with a small waist to hip ratio of around 0.7(the waist is 70% the size of the hips), irrespective of variance in weight as the most attractive and healthy (2). This corresponds to scientific assessments that verify a woman with a small waist to hip ratio (WHR) as the most healthy and fertile. WHR is found to be positively correlated with high testosterone and negatively linked to estrogen (3), thereby high degrees of estrogen lead to low WHR.”
