Determining Proper Proportions?

  1. Question Determining Proper Proportions?


    I've asked this pretty much everywhere now but I really want to find the answer to this so I'll ask here too.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to determine what your favorable measuremnets would be for a certain height and weight to be proportionate? I mean, I can look in the mirror, but if I tend to favour a body part it's probably because in my head, it's too small. Does anyone know of a list or something that gives you proper proportions for your height and weight?


  2. Attractive body proportions generally follow the golden ratio.

    It's all pretty much opinion, and if there was a set of rules, bone structure would make them hard to follow.

  4. yeah this would be like impossible to say because some people have broader bodies then others.. best way to tell if your disporportionate is to just take a picture and have some people look at it because your used to seeing yourself in the mirror everyday and sometimes you cant tell, yourself..

  5. One that I've heard before is your calves should be the same size or close to the size of your arms.

    hmm, that's the same chart I put up over at GM

  8. Yeah, your link there doesn't work anymore weaver, had to find it elsewhere.

  9. Does that chart work very well for you guys?

    I am way wacked on it.

    Do you think the bicep is at your side or flexed?

    HGH/sleep enhancer: HGHpro
    Test Booster: TestoPRO and STOKED!
    Preworkout: MANIAC Fruit Punch and Pink Lemonade

  10. I think it applies if youre looking at it as a ratio type thing, in other words as long as one part is bigger all parts have to be bigger in accordance. (if bicep is bigger by one inch, than all parts have to be bigger by one inch)

    Otherwise it doesnt make sense

  11. very cool chart!

    well if you look at it for exact measurements, probably most the people here are jacked
    didnt seem that selfexplanatory to me but maybe its all the Southern comfort I drank this weekend messing with my brain

    Actually I do not think that is the way it goes.

    I believe it is a ratio not just add an inch to each measurement.
