The other day, I found this Ideal Body Measurement Calculator: http://www.liftforlife.com/FitnessCalculators.htm#Ideal Body Measurements
After clicking If you are at the top of the page, look at the list on the left, and you'll see that the "Ideal Body Measurement Calculator" is the 5th calculator down on the left. The calculator appears to be based on an algorhythm generated off the circumference of your wrist. They say it's a starting point, and is helpful in identifying places that are not proportional. Has anyone tried it, and if so what are your thoughts on it and what were your results?
As of today, My wrists are 7.5 inches around, and that suggests the following "ideal" measurements (in inches) from the calculator:
Bicep Peak: 17.55
My measurements are:
Chest: 46.5 (-4.8%)
Waist: 37 (+9.22% ~ too many M&Ms)
Hips: 40 (-4%)
Upper Arm: 15 (-17%)
Fore Arm: 12.75 (-10%)
Thigh: 25 (-3%)
Calf: 18 (+8%)
Neck: 16 (-16%)
I added a chest and shoulder measurement, and mine was 52.5 inches.
My area of weakness is waist (more cardio needed, and less M&Ms), and arms.
I'm switching to the "Building Bigger Triceps and Biceps" Routine tomorrow.
How long do you think it'll take to get in line with the "ideal" measurements?
Also, I've included a poll to see how in how many body areas you exceeded the target measurement (exceeding the waist doesn't count. lol)
I know it'll take some time to figure all this up, but I found it very informative...... Now, where did you leave your tape meausure?
