How to Build Chest Muscles

For those aspiring male models who may want to make themselves more marketable for modeling jobs, we suggest building a little muscle. Many aspiring male models are only concerned with being skinny (they call it lean) and having abs. Abs are great to have, but your other muscle groups help you better fill out clothing on the runway. And the chest muscle is a priority muscle to build. We've complied all our advice on how to build a nice chest in one article.

In the article, we recommend a book that includes something surprising: The book shows you how exercising your back can help build six-pack abs, too.

Check out our advice on How to Build Chest Muscles and good luck to transforming your body!

How to Get a Bigger Back

Ever wonder how some males can fill out a shirt nicely - while other guys can wear the same shirt and not look as good? Often this is because one model has a bigger back than the other.

Fitting a shirt and looking good often depends on both the cut (the style) of the shirt as well as the body structure of the model.

One of the best things a new model can do to create a "V" look when wearing clothes is to lift weights to get a bigger back. We have compiled some advice and supplies new models need to order from Amazon to start building their back muscles. Take a look and tell us what you think. Leave a comment. Do you think the slender look is best for male models, or do you think the wider "V" back is better?

Name Recognition

We recently spoke with a top photographer who was casting a major advertising campaign. It paid very well.

The photographer was waiting for his connection in a Minneapolis airport and opened a local magazine and saw a local model who would be perfect for his ad campaign. Unfortunately, the page did not list the model's name.

The photographer returned to Los Angeles and made an effort to contact the business who had placed the ad. The photographer send two emails and left a voicemail with the company stating that he wanted to hire the "model shown in your ad."

The company never returned the photographer's calls or emails, so he had to hire some other model for his ad campaign.

So, there is some broke guy somewhere in Minneapolis who has no idea that he missed out on a trip to Los Angeles, a lot of money and a chance to go on to bigger and better things - because he forgot to ask the company who ran the ad - to list his name in the ad.

We think name recognition is a top priority when starting out as a new model, new actor, or any field that requires notoriety or name recognition. We have written some advice for new people seeking to get their careers started. We show you how to ask for your name to be published and what to say to build name recognition.

What do you think? Have you wondered who the model was who appeared in an ad? have you ever anted to offer a modeling job to a model, but been unable to know his or her name? Leave your comments and stories. We'd love to hear!

Become a Model Agent

We often receive emails from energetic people who want to know how to become a modeling agent. Do you take a course? is there a license?

Times are changing and modeling agencies are increasingly seen as "the middle man" that can be bypassed and eliminated. Agencies offer importance when it comes to billing, but many aspiring models are booking themselves directly with clients - rather than expend energies to get accepted into an agency.

Surprisingly, it is what you bring to the table. Do you have any skills that an agency can use? Read how to become a model agent. It is not as difficult as you may assume!

Tell us what you think. Can you find the type of fresh faces that would establish you as a top-not model scout? Where do good-looking potential models hang out?

Dumbbell Exercises for Aspiring Models

Going to the gym to lift weights and get a developed six pack is an everyday requirement for male models. However, with Auditions, call-backs, day jobs, testing with photographers and general hussling for the next modeling job, sometimes it is difficult to get to the gym.

This is where dumbbell exercises can help. With a basic set of dumbbells, it is possible to maintain a workout plan whenever a model cannot hit the gym.

Usually a model can get a basic workout in with only 35 pound, 40 and 50 pound dumbbells.

Check out our list of dumbbell exercises here.
