    You're *supposed* to measure cold (unflexed, not pumped). That's what you walk around looking like.

    I don't know anyone who does though. icon_biggrin.gif

    Why would you measure your bicep unflexed? Maybe for your own knowledge. But who would post that? That would be, for me, like saying how fast are you in the 100? Well, walking or actually running? Well, walking the 100 I am 30 seconds. Maybe 45. Actually running?......

    Thanks for the input. I got into an argument with my friend about this. I think he was just butt hurt that my arms were much bigger than his. icon_lol.gif

    It's flexed, and for me it's after a killer arm workout, lol.

    Thank you for posting this. My trainer always measures me pre-workout, unflexed, so now I know the distance to my dream body just got a little shorter. icon_biggrin.gif

    Have a friend/workout partner measure your biceps both ways: pre-workout relaxed and flexed, then post-workout relaxed and flexed.

    Why? It's a good excuse to talk someone into groping your biceps while they wrap the tape measure around them. icon_biggrin.gif
