These Are The Sexiest Male Body parts As Rated By Women

Many of us get a gym membership so we can impress the women around us, and often times we find ourselves being complimented by fellow gym bros more than the ladies. Regardless, women can be the inspiration to lose those extra kilos or pack on some muscle mass. No matter how much you would want to deny it, but a fit bod will always beat a dad bod. But, what are the sexiest male body parts according to women?


Many times, the motive for many men to get into the gym and get in shape are women. They want to look their best and impress women. Unfortunately, when they get into the gym, a lot of times these guys will find themselves being complimented by other guys in the gym. While a compliment is a compliment, you do not see women complimenting men as much as men complimenting men! This may defeat a lot of guys and make them feel that women are not paying attention the their muscularity. However, that is not the case.

Women most certainly pay attention to these guys, even if they do not say anything in the gym. They certainly have their picks for the sexiest male body parts, and there is proof of this!

Researchers at Western Illinois University conducted a study where they asked several women to rate the sexiest muscles on a man. While we could have guessed a few of these body parts, some are completely shocking. These are the results of the not-so-surprising study.

1. Abs

There are no surprises here, what woman doesn’t love a nice set of abdominal muscles? Abs were rated the sexiest male body part by women. Having a shredded midsection certainly adds to the overall aesthetics of your physique. They are so much more important if you’re planning to hit the beach with your lady love.

While abs are the sexiest muscle on a man, they aren’t easy to obtain. It takes discipline in your diet and workouts to achieve them. As they say, “abs are made in the kitchen”, which is partially true. Diet certainly plays a huge role in the levels of fat you have and muscle you retain in your midsection. However, training them to actually pack on some more muscle certainly helps.

Follow this ab workout to get on the radar of women with your chiseled midriff.

2. Biceps

Biceps have been the symbol of strength and machoism for centuries. The signature pose to show off your muscles is typically showcasing your biceps. If you want to impress a woman with your muscles, there is no way you can do it with skinny arms. Chances are you already know this and are working on your guns.

The godfather of bodybuilding himself, 7x Mr. Olympia himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger referred to his biceps as mountains. He would envision them growing as he trained them. You need to follow the same approach to build sleeve-ripping pythons.

3. Chest

A broad chest is hard to develop, and there are only a few other things women appreciate more than chiseled pecs on a man. A full and muscular chest is what separates the men from the boys, a chest shelf, if you will.

Your chest workouts should be a mixture of compound and isolation exercises. Compound exercises add to the size of your chest while isolation exercises add definition.

4. Obliques

Most people overlook training their obliques. Their core workouts consist only of ab exercises. Your midriff cannot be deemed complete without well-defined obliques. Obliques are the fish gills like muscles at the sides of your abs that make you look extra shredded.

Women rated obliques as the fourth sexiest muscle on a man, and this should be reason enough to start training them. 10-minutes of oblique training during an ab workout is enough to add definition to your midsection.

5. Triceps

A pair of shredded arms gives women the surety you can hunt for them and keep them safe and warm. Although your triceps don’t get the same attention as your biceps, they make up two-thirds of your arms, there are 3 different heads of the tricep, hence the name “tri”.

You can’t afford to slack off during your triceps training. Your triceps should look like a horse kicked you in the back of your arms. Training your triceps isn’t about lifting heavy weights as much as it is about focusing on achieving muscle failure.

6. Butt

This is one muscle we certainly didn’t expect to be on the list. It is certainly surprising for glutes to be on the list of the sexiest male body parts chosen by women. On the flip side, we’re sure well shaped and sized butts would be one of the top two body parts on the list if men would have taken this same test. But, glutes made the list for sexiest male body part.

That being said, if you have been skipping your leg days, this should be a wake-up call for you. Apart from the usual squats and deadlifts, you should be focusing on glute building exercises like the donkey kickbacks and reverse abductor presses to work on your rear. It may feel a little awkward doing this at first, but the ladies seem to enjoy a nice derriere!
