    The above link is an example of the goal calculation systems available online. I was wondering the general consensus was around these, good way to manage your routine and measure progress, or just outright bullshit?

    The numbers are just about spot on.

    Except waist,but many of us have a small problem there.

    lol.

    Holy shit, according to this, I have a long way to go.

    My wrist is 6.75 inches.

    Here are the calculator, actual, and differences:

    Chest: 43.875, 38.5, -5.375 (this one shocked me the most, I need to gain over 5 inches on my chest/back to look proportional!)

    Forearm, 12.723, 12.0, -0.723 (okay, pretty close here)

    Waist: 30.712, 33.0, +3.0 (my waist is bigger, but I don't have much fat, so no way to change this here!)

    Thigh: 23.25, 24.0, +0.75 (pretty close here)

    Calf: 14.917, 15.5, +0.583 (close here too)

    Bicep: 15.795, 14.1., -1.675 (this one is pretty far behind)

    Neck: 16.233, 15.75, -0.483 (not too bad)


    It was interesting to look at the numbers, at least.

    My wrist is 7.25" (that always amazes me because it looks so spindly to me), which means the rest of my body is severely deformed. icon_sad.gif

    Well it seems realistic... And my waist is already the size that it says it should be.
    But then again I have the wrists of a five-year-old so it's kind of disappointing...

    This thing says that my calves should be 13'' and my biceps 14''
    Is that normal? How would that even look?

    Suppose it would if you measured the biceps when flexed, but I see what you mean though.

    I could stand to lose a few inches around my waist/hips. No surprise here, my biceps, calves and thighs are larger than expected. Chest, forearms and neck slightly smaller than they should be.

    Chest - website has 42.2500". I am 42"
    Waist - website has 29.5750". I am 34"
    Hip - website has 35.9125". I am 37.5"
    Bicep - website has 15.2100". I am 16"
    Forearm - website has 12.2525". I am 11.75" **
    Thigh - website has 22.3925". I am 23"
    calve - website has 14.3650". I am 16.5"
    neck - website has 5.6325". I am 15.5"

    ** I guess I need to jack-off more!

    Ok, I'm bigger than all those measurements and my wrist must be undersized. icon_neutral.gif

    My upper arms and chest do not like that site, lol... easily the hardest parts for me to put mass on.

    Thighs are a different matter icon_razz.gif

    What he said. Bodybuilders are judged on body ratios and symmetry. So if you are planning on being a competitive body builder they are the way to go. Otherwise you should manage your workout routine around your fitness goals.

    It is surprisingly close

    8" Wrist

    Calculator My Measurement
    Chest 52" 50"

    Forearm 15.08" 14"

    Waist 36.4" 36"

    Thigh 27.56" 27"

    Hip 44.2" 43.5"

    Calve 17.68" 17.5"

    Bicep 18.72" 18.75"

    Neck 19.24" 17.5"

    I did not think I was going to be that close but it seems to be accurate.

    I find that surprising. As do a lot of people: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/2549854/

    A lot of the measurements for me were in the right ballpark. Except waist... it says I should have a 32" waist, but even when I was *underweight* for a brief period in my 20's I was 34". icon_rolleyes.gif

    How the hell do you increase neck size other than gaining fat?

    6.25" wrists

    Chest Size: 40.625 (36.75")
    Forearm Size: 11.75 (?)
    Waist Size: 28.5 (31")
    Thigh Size: 21.5 (19.75")
    Hip Size: 34.5 (36")
    Calve Size: 13.81 (13")
    Bicep Size: 14.625 (12.25")
    Neck Size: 15 (14)

    I have a hard time seeing myself with a 15" inch neck and a 28.5" waist lol.

    These appear a lot more relaxed. I think I was reading something the other day...

    A bodybuilder physique:

    Arm size = 252% of wrist size
    Calf size = 192% of ankle size
    Neck Size = 79% of head size
    Chest Size = 148% of pelvis size
    Waist size = 86% of pelvis size
    Thigh size = 175% of knee size

    My wrist is 7.5

    Chest website - 48.75 and I am 43.5
    Waist website - 34.125 and I am 37.5 ( yet my GAP 1969 jeans are a size 34!)
    Hips website - 41.437 and I am 41.25
    Biceps website - 17.55 and I am 15.5
    Forearms website - 14.137 and I am 12.5
    Thighs website - 25.837 and I am 23.25
    Calves website - 16.575 and I am 16.5
    Neck website - 18.037 and I am 17.25


    According to the above, I need to add 5 + inches to my chest, drop 4 inches off my waist, add 2 inches to my biceps, 2 inches to forearms, 2 inches to thighs, and an inch to my neck.

    Assuming that I follow a solid nutrition and exercise plan, would it be realistic to achieve the website recommendations in one year?

    I am looking for realistic goals...but my ultimate goal is to prepare for another Tough Mudder.

    Thanks!
