The Well-Shaped Man
The chest should be the widest and the thickest part of the body. The muscles of the limbs should be well visible. The should9rs should stand out well away from the chest, and should be well curved.
The lower jaw should join the neck at a definite angle, with no double chin.
There are three signs which indicate that there is no undue growth of fat:
1. There should be a muscular projection where the trunk joins the hip-bone: that of the large oblique abdominal muscle, which you never see in a sedentary person.
2. The stomach should remind one of the shape of a violin, rounded be low by, the folds of the groin. The projections of the two large muscles of the abdomen would correspond to the sound-holes of the violin.
3. The two grooves, back and front, running from the fork of the breastbone to the navel and from the shoulders to the loins, should be visible and not thickened by fat.
