I used to stress the importance of style. It is of course not unimportant, but a much bigger determinant of your success with women is your physique. Thus, if you walk around in a plain T-shirt and your female acquaintances remark that you surely work out, you’re fine. From that point onward, adding more muscle or losing a bit more body fat is a pointless micro-optimization.
Don’t get me wrong, in general it is good to be in shape and to not carry too much fat around. You may want to look at yourself in the mirror and marvel at your six-pack. However, if you’re not competing, either on the bodybuilding stage or with your homoerotic bros in the gym, this doesn’t really matter. A caveat is that this does not necessarily apply if you live in a warmer country and pick up chicks on the beach. In that case, going from a blurry four-pack to a six-pack may be worth the effort if you are competing with a lot of guys with six packs. Otherwise, don’t bother.
Some insecure bros may now chime in that this is a bunch of nonsense, but think about it: When you’re dressed and you’ll look pretty buff, then her decision to fuck you won’t change the moment you take off your shirt. It just won’t happen that you undress, spread her legs, but upon entering, she tells her that she can’t let you bone her because you don’t have a six-pack.
So far, I have only been referring to “natural bodybuilding”. Hit the gym for two years, and you’ll gain a significant amount of muscle. Taking steroids to grow even bigger seems unnecessary, if you’re not part of that subculture. You guys should look up pictures of Schwarzenegger in his prime, but fully dressed. Look at this:
Of course he wouldn’t have gotten that gig had he not been Schwarzenegger, but guys with much more body fat and less muscle would have looked the same. In that shot, if you did not know that it was Schwarzenegger, you would not have concluded that it shows a first-rate bodybuilder in disguise.
In true “Minimal Game” manner, the bottom line is that you shouldn’t optimize your workout routines based on how you look naked, but how you look like with your clothes on. If you look good when you’re dressed, you’re buff enough for picking up girls. You’re probably at 95 %, if not more, of your potential at that point.
