    If so, what evidence is there to support this claim?

    How does it improve facial aesthetics (apart from losing bodyfat %)

    Appreciate all clear and backed up answers

    Ty brahs!

    It could be a lot worse.... It could also be a lot better though.

    Yeah, I think so. Not in every case, obviously, but in most. If you look at just about any very fit athlete, they look sexy and good. Maybe not Hollywood but damn attractive. Some bodybuilders use steroids to the point that their facial features start looking kind of odd but other than that, yeah, I'd say so.

    I'm not sure how anything other than fat loss, which accentuates such "masculine" markers as lantern jawlines and cheekbones, and a "healthy" lifestyle imparting that "glow" (if not tan) improves facial aesthetics. Though nothing enhances a jawline like human growth hormone.

    I mean, if someone has, like, a double chin (or more), then it IS as simple as losing body fat. Fat loss exercise causes the body to draw on energy reserves in subcutaneous fat, breaking it down into energy and waste which is excreted. Double chins actually take an astonishingly large amount of time and/or calories to obtain, mind you. Fat generally doesn't like to accumulate above the shoulders unless it has absolutely nowhere else to go.

    As far as actual face structure goes, no, you cannot change the set of your jaw or height of your cheekbones with any kind of exercise. As eager said, it's largely your diet and exposure to sun which gives your face and skin in general a healthy "glow", unlike the pallor of those who stay indoors a great deal eating pizza rolls.

    My face got more muscular and defined after I started lifting for about a year, unquestionably.

    Of course it does. If you workout and have a nice body you can charge more on rentboy. And then can afford to pay for a face lift.

    Yup! I used to have a roundish face, but since rowing and keeping fit, I have a really defined jawline and prominent cheekbones.

    How much can I charge as a cute male kitty with an above average kitty penis?

    Coming from a faceless, unverified profile, that deserves a block and ignore all future posts.

    I notice the slightest changes in my face and I like having plumpness to my face, if I go gaunt from working out too much or over exerting myself from lack of sleep I automatically think I've aged but my skin snaps back into place after a while.

    its like getting a haircut, you grow into it.

    though some bodybuilders who work out too much and pull those mean faces when they are lifting bar bells are doing themselves no favours, i consciously make an effort to keep my face in bitch resting position when i work out like Wednesday from the addams family.

    I think if you are serious about bodybuilding, or even just adopting a healthy lifestyle, you change up your nutrition consumption. Amazing how even good water can make you look healthier... and how the ingestion of crap food can make you look that way. You are what you eat, so to speak!

    It can't hurt but it doesn't always help; witness Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lou Farrigno, Joe Piscopo,

    My face became less bony, it's now rounder (and in my perspective prettier) than before. But this comes down to nutrition, not so much exercise.

    Funny how we came to opposite effects!

    I want to see Bachian's face. On him, rounder may actually be better. ;)

    I don't get it. It's like I'm in math class and I have to show my work. How would you provide "evidence" to support a "claim" that bodybuilding has any aesthetic effect on the face? A subjective judgement (an "aesthetic") can't be claimed, nor can it be substantiated with evidence.

    Beauty has no such boundaries.

    I don't think so- you're face is all up to the genetics-i've seen some guys with great bodies but ugly faces -ever heard a strait guy talk about a woman and say she's a butterface-looks good all over butterface lol same applies to men

    I don't think it does. Most likely it just predisposes you to find the person attractive.
