    Body Proportions

    Does anyone have any info regarding the proportions of muscle on one's body? I.E. Upper arms are 1.5 times the size of forearms or something. Or your quads should be X times bigger than your calves. I think I recall reading something about this in some newsstand mag, so that kinda piqued my interest. Any links or general guidelines? Ultimately, I'll be happy with my body when I look in the mirror and am pleased, not if I fit some mold...just curious.

    As far as I know, there are no general guidelines. Proportions are mainly genetic, and everyone's built differently.

    I think Chris Mason once posted a list of proportions that he, or a certain bber, considered ideal that seemed to be pretty much true.

    one point i remember was arm=calf=neck
