Whats a myotape and where can I get one???
myotape is just a measuring tape which makes it easier to measure than just a tape measure. 1fast sells one here. dunno who else does
if you plan on buying one but dont have a way to measure fat i'd grab this combo. It's some fat calipers plus a myotape.
I have that combo pack...one thing I've noticed about the Myotape is that you have to add an inch to its measurement. I dont know if I got one thats screwed up but when measuring w/ a regular tape and the myotape measurer, the myotape come up short an inch. The calipers seems pretty accurate though.
Or you can just buy a fabric measureing tape from just about anywhere. There like $2 from any fabric or sewing shop.
Thanx fellas, I normally use a plain 'ol tape measure but the damn thing is about to fall apart.....thats from all the measuring done from my last cutter, LOL...
dont worry they're all like that. i dont think it's a whole inch though. But it's very consistant!Originally Posted by kmac6225
true but w/ some measurements i find this hard. especially when i'm taking a flexed chest measurement and such. it's hard to flex your chest and hold a tape measure, know what i mean? =DOriginally Posted by db682
Thats where a paper clip comes in. The tape slides through the clip almost like a belt buckle and when you stop flexing the paper clip remains in the flex measurement spot.
Poor mans Myotape. Got poor mans tricks for just about everything.
Maybe he measured the chest with the tape outside of the arms...
i have a pretty good bench its about 465 because of shoulder injuries, and my chest is 53 inches, if your only hittin 265 for 6 or even 10 i cant see you having a 50 " chest sorrie bud but unless you post some measurement pics i dont believe you .
465 w/ shoulder injuries. Thats a sweet bench for anyone, injured or not. Ive dislocated both of my shoulders (right one once, left one twice) in the past while playing football and wrestling, and I get nervous when I do anything over 365. I dont let it stop me but the thought of it poping out again does cross my mind.
465lb @ 20 years old with injuries. thats something else.
**** yeah.....465 is definately a sweet site.....I'm 22 and still working on breaking 300 for actual work sets...good job...
Yeah, I must agree with phenom about your stats. I'm 5 inches taller, 30 lbs heavier and those are my stats without being pumped except I can't button my 18 1/2 collar on my dress shirts. But with those stats you should be putting 295 x 6. Maybe you just measured wrong or maybe your just one of those guys that tell the girls your hung like a horse too....LOL jk........YO phenom I've only seen 2 peeps like you pusing that kind of weight, question, "how much do you weigh?"
Aight den Laters!

yea its my right shoulder, and its a bi*CH but after next season im going for surgury(date will be set after my mri on summer break), i could have taken state this year for disc but my coach was wondering where i was loosing my power(i keep my righ elbow slightly bent so i dont extend and dislocate) i only feel it when im fully extended in military, and certain tri excercises and i stay away from cleans, but i do deadlift.

Bro, I think your measurements are wrong and misleading, you def. dont look like you have 18inch arms , mine are 191/2 cold ,but you can tell they are. As for you hitting 120lbs bumbell presses no ,not if your only hitting 245 flat bench. I flat bench 365 for 6 reps clean and i have to struggle with 120's sorry bro im not flaming you ,but your measurements dont match the pics. 50 inch chest?Originally Posted by phenom9950
