I should be benching 220 and oly squatting 300. Im a bit below that.  ;D

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

Yeah of course kilos. 484 bench and 660 oly squat that is.

Phew, you had me worried there for a second. I guess we're fraternal twins.

Lets make those estimates. That would be cool.

Wingspan is measured fingertip to fingertip I'm assuming? Because in that case my reach baffles me.

I think my shoulder girdle might sit low relative to the top of my head compared to other people. I've notice people like Amare Stoudemire has his shoulders almost permanently shrugged up if you know what I mean?

I have the same problem. Wingspan is about my height but my reach is relatively low.

legs looking big!!! seems like most people on this site rival the greek measurements with lower body, but fail upper body.. interesting you know, we're such "leg training obsessed athletes".. and as jumpers, tons of excess upper bulk wouldn't be beneficial.

Measurements taken after eating a lot of food.

Wrist: 7 (difference from ideal measurements below in parentheses)
Chest: 42 (-3.5)
Forearm: 12 (-1.2)
Biceps: 13.75 (-2.35)
Waist: 30.5 (-0.7)
Thigh: 23 (-1.1)
Hips: 38 (-0.7)
Calf: 15 (-0.5)
Neck: 15 (-1.8 )

So I need a bit bigger everything, particularly chest, forearm, neck and biceps. In order to look like a Greek statue, that is.

Foot length: 10.75
Foot width: 4.25
Index toe length: 2.75

UPDATE

According to this calculator: [broken link, can't find the calculator anymore], I have a maximum lifting potential of:
bench 343
oly squat (high bar ATG) 472
power squat 515
DL 550

bumping for funsies and in case anyone else wants to give this a shot. the link to the "ideal greek measurements" page is here: http://www.fitness.com/tools/greek_proportions/. my updated measurements are below, with difference from "ideal" for my wrist measurement in parentheses.

Wrist: 7
Chest: 43 (-2.5)
Forearm: 12.5 (-0.7)
Biceps: 14 (-2.1)
Waist: 31.5 (+0.8 )
Thigh: 24.5 (+0.4)
Hips: 38.5 (-0.2)
Calf: 15.75 (+0.25)
Neck: 15.5 (-1.3)

still with the skinny biceps, chest and neck, but numbers up across the board since 2010. waist a bit over (there's those five holiday pounds, lol) and thigh and hips a bit over.

for consistency, if anyone wants to do the same:
-bicep flexed with arm bent, forearm flexed with wrist slightly bent
-chest relaxed standing straight, nipple height; waist and neck also relaxed standing straight
-thigh standing with weight on that leg but not actively flexing, same for hips
-calf seated with leg bent but not actively flexing

Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.
