Having a v taper can be a real achievement for you. Because this is the superior body type for alpha males and even females.
What is a V-Taper
It’s the standard and well-known term for bodybuilding used for body development, especially when anyone wants to narrow the waist with solid, well-developed upper muscles such as broad and wide shoulders and upper back.
You can easily see all the dominant factors that makes up a v-taper but I will explain you in depth. and how you can achieve it with the help of a home gym.
A person having a big back and big wide shoulders along with having a narrow waist tend to have a v-taper. V-taper shows dominance and power that is why all the superheroes or some bad*ss characters in a movie and even athletes have a v-tape upper body. Can achieve it at home as well.
Muscles You Need to Target to achieve V taper
The muscles you need to target in order to achieve that V look are;
- Shoulders (lateral and back deltoids)
- Back muscles (width and thickness)
- Narrow Waist
Shoulders (lateral and back deltoids)
The shoulders plays a huge rule in your v-taper. You should most target the side lateral delts and the back rear delts.
In order to target the side lateral delts do some lateral raises but along with doing simple lateral raises also perform single lateral raises and other sorts of variations.
For shoulder mass do military overhead barbell press and also you can check callisthenic workout machine.

Your back plays the most important role in your v shape building because back is the biggest muscle on your body. Furthermore you need to maintain a back thickness along with width as well so that you can achieve that sexy look. You can do it at your home by using this home workout machine that is in your budget as well
If you want to make your back thicker then you need to some rowing like bend dumbbell rows and bend barbell rows.
In addition, if you want to achieve that width then train yourself hard and start doing some wide grip chin-ups and pull-ups.

Another important factor that should be noted and worked hard on are the upper traps. People mostly don’t pay attention to this area and are not able to achieve complete dominant body shape.
To build those upper traps start doing some shrugs and not just simple ones but back and front barbell shrugs as well. Hold the barbell in front of you with shoulder width grip and raise your shoulders upward like touching your ears.
You will never be able to achieve complete v shaped look if your waist to shoulders ratio is not making a triangle. That’s why I mentioned the shoulders at the very beginning because the more big shoulders and a more narrow waist line tend to achieve more sexy v-taper.
Bodybuilding is all about illusion you give a narrow waist and big shoulder triangle illusion that makes you look bigger and dominant because of that illusion.
In order to get a narrow waist start doing some abdominal exercises like hanging leg raises, hanging knee raises and hanging side to side leg raises.
