There are lots of good programs out there too build a body with. You can just throw crap at the wall and see what sticks, and then use that as a program, and you will have some limited success.

You will have far better success if you lay out your entire program so that everything is covered methodically, and then work the program. It takes weeks to see changes, and years to make a serious dent. It does happen though with hard work.

Don't overthink, and do not make this more complicated than it needs to be. Let everybody else make that mistake. Just keep hitting it when it is time.

Some of the best programs you will find are labled as Golden age training methods. There is a lot of info on this subject here on MAB. Do yourself a favor and educate yourself on how these, OLD GUYS, built bodies that most people will never have, nor could they hang with the training.

Here is some basic info on what you might be able to achieve for a well proportioned body.

In his “classic physique” book, Reeves said his formula for “ideal proportions” was as follows:

Muscle to bone ratios:
Arm size= 252% of wrist size
Calf size= 192% of ankle size
Neck Size= 79% of head size
Chest Size= 148% of pelvis size
Waist size= 86% of pelvis size
Thigh size= 175% of knee size

Steve Reeves’ height and weight chart for a bodybuilder (natural)
5’5” 160lbs
5’6” 165lbs
5’7” 170lbs
5’8” 175lbs
5’9” 180lbs
5’10” 185lbs
5’11” 190lbs
6’0” 200lbs
6’1” 210lbs
6’2” 220lbs
6’3” 230lbs
6’4” 240lbs
6’5” 250lbs
