All of our physical features—from the shape of our waist and stomach, to the size of our wrists, to the roundness of our arms—are based upon our personal genetics, our fitness, and our health history. So one person's body is different from another's. And that means that the exercise routine that works for one individual may not work for another. 
 
The key to fitness success is a customized workout, tailored just for you!

That's where Ben Greenfield's book comes in. Focusing on specific exercises designed to target individual body types, Get-Fit Guy's Guide to Achieving Your Ideal Body provides all the tools, tips, and nutritional tricks to achieve your dream body. No more boring marathon sessions at the gym, only to see minimal results (or worse, gaining weight in the wrong areas!) Get-Fit Guy's Guide will show you how to quickly and effectively carve out your ideal body with a workout that targets your individual shape.

Introduction

Take a look at your ankles. Are they bony? Thick? Muscular? Now move up to your calves. Are they square? Round? Embarrassingly nonexistent?
What about your hips? Are they narrow or curvaceous? As you continue to move up your body, you’ll see and feel unique anatomical characteristics that specifically define you, including the shape of your waist and stomach, the breadth of your shoulders, the thickness of your chest, the length of your neck, the size of your wrists, and the roundness of your arms.
