Lung body type men have a torso which characteristically appears straight from the front but tapered and more dominant from the back. They have medium bone structure and may range from short to tall. Their shoulders are broader than their hips, and they have a tendency to develop a rounded upper back giving a stooped appearance. They have solid musculature in the abdomen where they can attain muscular definition with basic exercise. Their thighs and calves are thin to average.
