    Anyone have any information on how to determine symmetry? For example, a man who is 5ft8 and weighs 190, how big should his biceps be? His neck? etc

    A few years ago I found a really good calculator site, but I can't find it any more. This seems to have the info you need though.

    Symmetry means that everything on the right side of your body looks like everything on the left side of your body.

    If any one body part looks over developed in comparison to the other parts, then you're probably not doing enough for those other parts.

    For instance, don't go to the gym and do nothing but arm curls. It would give you great looking arms, but no chest or shoulders, etc.

    good symmetry has alot to do with genetics. If your 5'5 and 230, 240 you don't have it!!

    Alot depends on what is considered symetrical, especially when it comes to bodybuidling. A big factor is the body composition , especially the body frame. My best suggestion is to seek out a bodybuidling competititon in your area then talk to the judges. They are more than willing to offer their advice.
