What do you use to measure? And do you do it yourself? Flexed or unflexed?

i use some tape measurer, not a metal ribbon one, some flexible ribbon one.. works well. you could use some kind of string, then measure that (the string will conform nice to the circumference).

measure unflexed :D

peace

I assume you mean kilos. Cause there's no way in hell my estimated max bench is 381 and yours is 220.

Height: 5'11''
Weight: 190.2 lbs

Wrist: 6.5''
Chest: 39.5 in (Greek: +2.8 in)
Forearm Size: 9.2 in (Greek: +3.1 in)
Waist: 32.5 in (Greek: -2.9 in)
Thighs (mid-thigh): 22.0 in (Greek: +0.4 in)

Biceps: 14.0 in (Greek: +1.2 in)
Neck Size (around Adam's Apple): 15.2 in (Greek: +0.4 in)
Ankles: 8.6 in

Conclusion: Too fat and too puny  :'(


Lifting Potential Based on wrist circumference, ankle circumference and height, as calculated by the yewhealth calculator-


Bench: 275 lbs
Oly Squat: 397 lbs
Power Squat: 433 lbs
Deadlift: 463 lbs


Conclusion: I'm gonna be weak forever :'(
PS- My puny wrists/ankles relative to my height/bodyweight may be attributed to my being born premature @ 2 lbs, 13 ounces. I have really small feet and hands as well.
