Who doesn't want broad shoulders and curved lats that result in a narrow but firm waist? Achieving V-Rejuvenation consists of three main components:
- A Basis of Strength
- Point Specific Hypertrophy for Your Lats and Medial Delts
- Adequate Slenderness
The Best Way to Get There? A specialization program like this. As a bonus, I will implement a nutritional program to promote your success. But first, let's take a closer look at these three keys.
Key One: A Foundation of Strength
Without an impressive foundation of strength, no impressive physique will be built. Heavy compound lifts, especially overhead presses, pulling up and deadlifts, are the cornerstones of V-Taper body training.
These provide the tension needed to build dense muscles and activate the maximum number of muscle fibers to accelerate growth. More importantly, building an impressive top-end force builds a body that is actually as strong as it looks.
Key Two: Point Specific Hypertrophy Work
This is bodybuilding style work to highlight the muscles that really make a V-rejuvenation.
Your front delts get a lot of work with overhead and horizontal pressure movements. While these composite movements are a pillar for building a V-cone, we'll spice up your workout with a number of variations on the side and rear Delt build. This emphasis helps improve your posture, balance the muscle development of your lats, and increase the width at the top of the V.
Well-developed lats are a must to highlight a slim waist. While vertical pulling exercises such as pull-ups are essential for building the V-taper, it is important to remember that the lats support the internal rotation. If you overemphasize exercises that rotate your humerus internally, you will exacerbate the caveman’s posture, wrap yourself around your shoulders and minimize the upper “V”, so to speak.
To balance your body, we add a constant dose of horizontal pulling movements such as rows to pull the shoulder blades back. They improve posture, reduce shoulder dysfunction and improve V-rejuvenation.
You must be slim to maximize V-taper. A smart plan includes exercises that target "anti-movements" and provide a pillar of stability for performance and injury prevention while adding a little meat to your rectus abdominus. For additional volume, we combine anti-movements, training for individual limbs and flexion-based abdominal muscle training.
Key three: Adequate slenderness
No body will stand out if it is hidden under some layers of body fat. Sure, you can still look athletic or strong if you carry a little more weight, but your "V" doesn't have a chance to rejuvenate if the size of your waist matches the size of your shoulders. [1
The V-Taper Program is a specialization program that consists of five separate training days. Take a look at:
- Two days focusing on vertical push-pull exercises
- Two days focusing on horizontal push-pull exercises
- One day focusing on legs
This program will take place on best carried out at times as a 6-8 weekly specialization phase between more balanced programming. Think of this as a specialization phase, not a long-term thing. Your elbows and shoulders benefit from a volume reduction.
When you relax afterwards, you will notice increased muscle growth due to supercompensation in the days and weeks after the V-Taper specialization.
Just like that, the program will help you build muscle in the right places.
Four Ways to Trigger Muscle Growth
1. Technical Mastery
Exercise selection and repetition schemes are important, but meaningless without careful attention to the execution of each repetition. If building muscle is the goal, you need to maximize the tension with each rep and focus on building a mind-muscle connection.
At the start of the program, decrease the weight you would normally use and slow down your eccentric (lowering) phase and focus on pushing the target muscle. When you have mastered an exercise, add the load.
2. Heavy weight
You use huge sets with high weight, moderately low repetitions and automatically regulated rest periods. If you set up the training in this way, you can add more volume due to the heavier weights and rest just long enough not to let the weight drop over the course of the sets. This provides significant mechanical tension to trigger growth.
3. Mechanical tension
This is probably the most important factor for building muscle. Tension refers to the strain on a working muscle over a period of time. The problem is that most lifters only associate mechanical tension with heavy compound lifting. However, to maximize growth, we need to focus on a variety of muscle contractions, not just heavy or explosive lifting.
In one of the following workouts you can, for example, increase the tension through partial repetitions and eccentric breaks. In another case, you can use huge sets to increase tension through higher weight, along with pauses during repetition, ROM manipulation, and partial repetitions.
You will find that almost every exercise has some form of tension manipulation technique that will help you get more out of every elevator.
4. The Pump
One of the keys to building a large, dense muscle is to send as much nutrient-rich blood as possible into the muscle you are targeting. The heavy giant sets will help, but you'll add some brutal finishers at the end of the session to fill those muscles with blood and stimulate more repair and growth.

V-Taper Physique Diet
Eat maintenance on your training days, but let the calories fall into deficit on days off. You maintain and build muscle in key areas as you lean out. Here is the basic setting.
- Calories: body weight in pounds x 13-15
- Protein: body weight x 1.2 grams
- Carbohydrates: body weight x 1.5 grams  Fat: Remaining calories
- Calories: 20% lower than training days
- Protein: Body weight x 1.2 grams
- Carbohydrates: Body weight x 0 , 5 grams
- Fat: Remaining calories
Need an example? Let's take a highly active 200 pound man:
Lifting Days For 200 Pound Lifter
Based on his body weight, we can determine the following numbers:
- Calories: 200 x 15 = 3,000
- Protein: 200 x 1.2 = 240 grams
- Carbohydrates: 200 x 1.5 = 300 grams
- Fat: 93 grams
Note on fat: Take your carbohydrates and fat, multiply them by four each. Then add them up and subtract that number from your total daily calories. So you have your daily calorie intake from fat. To find out how many grams that are, simply divide that number by 9 to get your total daily fat gram.
- Calories: 3,000 x 0.8 = 2,400
- Protein: 200 x 1.2 = 240 grams
- Carbohydrates: 200 x 0.5 = 100 Grams
- Fat: 115 grams
Let this run for 6-8 weeks and watch your body change before your eyes.
