    Guys, have you noticed? The "Arm Measurement" thing seems to be the one most often left blank in the profiles.

    Not hard to do unless I'm missing something. I took a leather lace and put it around the bi/tricep area, noted the wrap spot with the index finger of my other hand, and then measured the length with a ruler. That makes sense, right? It came out to like 14 and 3/4, so I said 15 (cringe). Hey, I'm gonna grow into it! I did notice--even though the configuration changes when I tense the muscle, the actual circumference comes out the same in both contraction and relaxation phase.

    You guys with the guns, you wouldn't be like bragging. More like providing a data point and giving us some motivation. As for the rest of us, we're working on it and we get the fun of changing the data upward as we see progress, right?

    Just my two cents and not the most pressing issue on RJ, but it does have some personal importance--seems back when my momma was makin' babies, she give me the arms of an ectomorph stiched onto the belly of a mesomorph. WTF??? Why couldn't it be the reverse?

    I have no idea how much my arms, or chest measures.

    I need to know my waist measurement to know how to buy pants, and my chest measurement to buy dress shirts and for suit requirements. That's why I know them and put them down on my profile. I have no fucking need to know what the hell my arm measures.

    What's more frustrating is that we have chest measurements, arm measurements, waist measurements... and it stops there...

    Further options could prove complicated. You'd need a drop down menu coded in to first determine whether you're a grower or a shower.

    Additional tick-box, no biggie...

    I'd rather know, to what extent it can 'grower' anyway.
    At least verifying would be fun...

    LMFAO... I hotlisted a guy who kindly responded "Thanks for the hotlist. I think your hot too, but I see you haven't listed your arm measurement." Yep, I see you have yours listed. Okay... so maybe he's not the brightest guy in the bunch. But I find it hilarious that if your arm measurement is not listed you can't be hotlisted. It wasn't as if I was asking him to fuck me. I just simply hit the "Hotlist" button on him. Oh well... at least I am thick skinned and could take it with some humor. But a small part of me is still in shock that people can be so stupid that you can't hotlist guys without arm measurements. Its not like this is a dating service or Manhunt.


    Let me know if you get the humor in this. Props to NoCityGuy!

    You're only supposed to pretend to make the tiny text unreadable, Alan. Not actually make it unreadable by turning it canary yellow icon_exclaim.gif

    Well, this thread has been a disappointment. I posted it under "General Fitness Discussion" not "Dating, Sex and Relationships." I am not really all that interested in whether you or I get "Hot Listed." Maybe I was a little too flip with the original question. Let me try again:

    For those of us who are using this site to get info and motivation for our worksouts (as opposed to make outs), would it not be helpful if we gave each other a data point by providing an arm measurement in our profiles and doesn't it just take just a minute or so to do the measurement? I'm presuming that the guys with the bigger guns would get some queries about what worked for them and would be generous about sharing tips.

    Thanks, guys.

    Dude, just admit you have a bicep/tricep fetish and want numbers to whack off to. icon_biggrin.gif

    O.K. then guys, how about having some compassion and giving us your number under Paul's theory? That way, each of us can use it any way we see fit! icon_wink.gif

    BTW, mine are still at 16.5 pumped, 15.75 cold. Working on my chest for a while before building them up to the final goal of 18.
    Happy fapping. icon_biggrin.gif
