    Trying to attain Robin Shou's physique in Mortal Kombat (1995)

    Hello everyone!

    I have been hitting the gym for a good few years now.

    For the longest period of time, I was aimlessly lifting weights without the slightest idea of how I wanted my body to look like. The physiques I was certain I didn't want were the extreme ends– either a runway model or Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    I am not sure about you guys but I found it rather difficult and sometimes unmotivating trying to build your body if you do not know your goal. So I struggled with that state for a while.

    After a long time, I finally found someone who's physique matched the one I wanted. He is none other than Robin Shou who played Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat (1995).

    Anyone experienced able to tell how big were his arms and chest from the photo? I know he is 6ft (I am 6ft too) and judging from his abs, he probably has around 10%-12% body fat?

    Reference Image: images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/21600000/Robin-Shou-robin-shou-21616318-253-455.jpg

    Here are my current measurements if you are interested:
    Height: 6ft
    Body Fat: 14%
    Arms: 15.5 inches
    Chest: 40.5 inches

    I know it may sound silly but please help me with his arms, chest and body fat measurements! Having a number in mind will help me a lot in my journey.

    Thank you guys!

    Just an update on my journey to achieve Robin Shou's physique in Mortal Kombat (1995).

    I am now sitting at:

    Body Fat: 12.5%
    At 12.5% body fat, I think my pecs and abs are still not as defined with that layer of fat. I probably still gotta lose 2% more body fat. This is honestly the hardest part.

    Arms: 16.0 inches
    I think my arms are probably bigger than Robin's now. Rewatching Mortal Kombat, I believe he had around 14.5 - 15 inches arms. I'll stop increasing weights for my arms now.

    Chest: 41.5 inches
    I grew an inch since. Yet, I still find my chest smaller. I probably will try to gain another inch.

    All in all, I think I probably have to lose more body fat to get a clearer comparison.

    Physique Update

    Body Fat: 11.0%
    I've managed to reduce 1.5% body fat. At 11.0% body fat, I think my upper pecs are pretty visible now, especially after abs workout and good lighting. I will attempt to lose another 1%.

    Arms: 16.0 inches
    No change as intended.

    Chest: 41.5 inches
    I failed to grow another inch. I am not sure if it is because of the 1.5% body fat I lost or because my chest has reached its peak size at my maintenance weight of 165lbs. However, it does seem a bit bigger than before at 12.5% body fat.

    Happy new year all! Great news to start the year! I am now single digit body fat!

    Physique Update

    Body Fat: 9.5%
    After 3 demoralizing months of stagnant body fat plateau at 11.0%, I've managed to reduce another 1.5% body fat! My abs are now pretty visible walking around. Unfortunately, I still feel my vascularity and abs are not super defined like Robin's. I suspect he is ultimately 8% and not 10-12% like I initially thought. I will ATTEMPT to lose another 1.5% body fat. God bless me because dieting is a bitch.

    Arms: 16.0 inches
    No change as intended.

    Chest: 42.0 inches
    I FINALLY managed to grow another 0.5 inch! At 9.5% body fat, my chest pecs are definitely much more defined than before, giving a larger impression. I think I still wana grow it a little. Will monitor the size as I continue to lose body fat.

    If all goes well, I will post a pic of my final transformation!
