Chad: 00:05 So we're getting a lot of questions regarding the proper way to live life in ketosis. We have you covered in our midweek mini series called Sunday subs every Sunday we have a quick supplemental episode where we answer your questions on all things Keto. So our question today comes from Ziyao and the spelling is z. i y a o. So I'm sorry if I slaughtered it. I'm just going to say um, and uh, and they ask how do you achieve an inverted triangle shape? No. Okay. All right. So let me make sure I'm understanding here. We're talking about a body shape, correct?
Eric: 00:42 Yep. I get it.
Chad: 00:45 The inverted triangle, I'm assuming is like a wide, a muscular shoulder, bicep back and, uh, an itty bitty waste. The big V. Yup. Yup. Yeah. The big V. Okay. My, my answer. I'm going to take a whack at this before you jump in and get my answer to this is a girdle.
Chad: 01:05 Just gain weight, throw on a girdle. Does it up. That's true. That is true though. I mean the waist makes a big difference. That's right. That's right.
Chad: 01:19 I know you. You've worked with so many athletes and and I'm sure you've kind of gone about this in different ways, but yeah, talk a little bit about what.
Eric: 01:30 Well, it's funny, I just got a picture from one of my biofitters that's actually on the stack and been trying for a month and he's, he's a lifter and he's keto and he really. It was amazing because he always complained, complained about his back fat. He called it and his obliques and he took a picture before and after. Now I have the pictures actually, and it was amazing how he reduced his waist. Of course is, obliques and the, he has a fat, right? You know, cross the waistline and the back and all of a sudden it's gone and that just makes your back just jump out.
Eric: 02:07 And so he really looks good. I mean, and plus he works out obviously, but it was just amazing to see the difference in like you're talking about a girdle made you think of that because his waist is really came in and just exploded his back. So there's your key right there. You hit on it, bring the waistline really, really in and it's gonna make your back look really really big. But there's other ways. I was a bodybuilder, uh, back in the late seventies for five, eight years and in the back is, you know, that, and we called the big V and most people want that shape. Um, most guys do. And even even, uh, women do to a, they want the big back to give you that v shape or an inverted triangle. And obviously you're working with your back, your lats. Okay. So you're working with pull pull pull.
Eric: 03:02 So like a rower rows. Um, anything pull downs with, with, with lats. I do a J type of, um, on the lap machine I used to as one as in bodybuilding. So there's, all you're concentrating on is basically your lats, you're going to bring your shoulders in a little bit, but not much just because secondary, but mainly you're going to concentrate on your lats to get that big, The v shape. And if you like, you know, sit down rows, you know, for, for pulls on your back. I'm not sure, you know, all the bodybuilders and even today have their own, you know, they kind of customize their own back workout, but I did a lots of pulls. Pullups ring pulls, all those kinds of bodyweight pulls and my back is, has stayed really, you know, know to the point where I, you know, I'm happy with it and I have a pretty good v-shape.
Eric: 04:00 Um, and it's maintained because of bodyweight. I do a lot of bodyweight stuff with that, so I'm always, always hanging and pulling. So increase your pulls, you know what it however you like with weights or with body weight and you'll really develop your lats. That's great. Yeah, there's no magic to it. It does take some hard work, but just maybe I should reduce my obliques and the, my back will look a lot better. That's my next and I'm keto, but for some reason just old guys carry a little bit of obliques in kind of stuck with it. So still working on it. That's my last one of my weak areas. I think you're doing all right. Hanging in there.
