Rich Gaspari's Classic Physique V-Taper Workout

IFBB Legend Rich Gaspari and current competitor Robert Timms run down the right moves to build the Classic Physique illusion.

Now that you know how that coveted V-taper physique should look, it’s time to start building one of your own. To help you achieve this body-sculpting goal, Rich Gaspari and Robert Timms will take you through an array of exercises that train both the back and the shoulders to create your Classic Physique.

This workout will accentuate that wide look up top with a small waist. “To do that you’ve got to build an illusion. You’re going to work on exercises that will build the back and shoulders,” says Gaspari.

“When building the classic physique, what’s really important is that you build those deltoids to make yourself as wide as possible. Back in the golden era I used to say, ‘build your shoulders so wide you can’t fit through a barn door’.”
