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: http://www.yewhealth.com/estimated-1rm-for-the-big-3/ (http://www.yewhealth.com/estimated-1rm-for-the-big-3/), I have a maximum lifting potential of:

My wrist : 6,9''

Chest Size: 43,3 / 44.9 ( -1,6'' )

Forearm Size: 12,2/ 13.0 ( -0.8'' )

Waist Size: 36 / 31.4 ( +4,6'' , vag = owned )

Thigh Size: 25,5 / 23.8 ( +1,7'' , statue = owned )

Hip Size: 42,1 / 38.1 ( +4'' , statue= PWNED )

Biceps Size: 15,7 / 16.1 ( -0,4'' )

Neck Size: 15,5 / 16.6 ( -1,1'' )

So he is much leaner , we are more or less the same everywhere unless from quads/hips where im much bigger.

Damn vag, you got skinny wrists.

Word!
Not just wrists , my general built is skinny/non-muscular , yet not lean , not even close GRRRRR  >:(.
Before engaging with weights , being 19 years old my natural bodyweight would balance at ~160lbs, bodyfat would be ~15% though.
When i was 15 years old my height was ~5'9''  and my weight... ~120lbs!!!
That would explain very clear why i dont worry much about my bodyfat , being naturally at 165/15% at 19 years old makes my current 194/16 while being 17 years older more than impressive!
Getting off-topic though , gonna post a full detailed training bio eventually so we can continue there , sorry everyone!

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

   * Calf Size: 16    
   * Biceps Size: 15
   * Neck Size: 14.6
   * Hips/Ass: 41

my estimated lifts are astronomical compared with what i can do now





Your “Normal” lifts are:

    * Bench =134kg (295 lbs)
    * Olympic Squat =215kg (474 lbs)
    * Power Squat =234kg (516 lbs)
    * Deadlift =250kg (550 lbs)

what I can actually do now is

bench - 110kg
I'm not so sure on the difference between olympic and power squat but I do parallel squat of 135kg
deadlift 160kg

I'd love to achieve those estimated lifts, I probably would have put on a fair amount of muscle if I could do them though

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
