What is the V-taper and Adonis? The V-taper is ratio of waist to shoulders. John and Brad have researched this for over a decade and it started with "Why do people go to the gym?” Is it health, or is it optimal shape? Whatever your motivation the outcome is BOTH. When you achieve the ratio or the pleasing shape (not necessarily a body builder shape) you get the health benefits of optimal testosterone along with optimal levels of the other important hormones and health markers. You get the best of both worlds.
