          Wow...this is a lot of work....OK here are the measurements:

          5' 9" heigh
          7.25 wrist
          9.0 ankle (right at the malleolus since it didn't specify...this could be an inch difference)
          14 knee
          22 forehead
          36 pelvis

          This gives me an "ideal proportions" of

          17 neck
          18 arms
          53 chest
          31 waist
          21 thighs
          17 calves

          Thats a lot of freaking measuring. I'm not sure that I'm that bored . I'll tell you right now that my waiste ain't that small and the rest of my body likely ain't that big. We'll see.

              53" chest with 21" thighs?
              My 22" thighs look like chicken legs with just a 42" chest, can imagine how to heavy that'd look

                  6'1" tall, 7" wrists, 10" ankles, 23" head, 39" pelvis, 15" knee

                  Neck: 18" (15")
                  Arms: 18" (14", but that is flexed...)
                  Chest: 58" (39")
                  Waist: 34" (32")
                  Thighs: 26" (25")
                  Calves: 19" (15")
                  Ideal bodyweight: 210lbs (199lbs)

                  Most of those seem somewhat propable with enough work and time, but putting 20 inches on my chest? Really?

                    K....went ahead and did it and here are my results:

                    17 neck (16)
                    18 arms (lol...14.5 flexed....13.5 not)
                    53 chest (lol....42 not flexed)
                    31 waist (lol...36)
                    25 thighs (23)
                    17 calves (14)

                    Ideal weight 180lbs...me = 165-170lbs.

                    Oh, and I musta misread cause when I did again it says 25 for thighs.

                    So yeah. I don't think I'm build for the stage . Arms and chest measurements would be the hardest to achieve for me. Those are some gunz there. While I consider my chest and back attributes I still don't know that I could tack 11 inches more onto them. Ah well back to the drawing board!

                      It seems we're in the same boat Neck. I doubt I'll ever have 18" arms, or be able to tack 20 inches to my chest...
                      I don't even think my chest is small at all, but 20 inches is a lot!

                      BTW, how do you measure chest? I do it under my arms, so they're not part of it, as that makes sense to me. But since the number is so high, maybe it's meant to include the arms? I don't know.

                        Yep, under your arms and around the widest part of your chest:

                            That's what I thought. I guess these ideal measures are beyond me then ;-)

                              I actually found The Grecian Ideal calculator to be a little more realistic and very close to the sizes I am.
