    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.

    I think the chest measurement it spits out is including and around the shoulders...

    Also at 6' 1" it's telling me 28" thighs are ideal and I don't think that's the case...I'm pretty much there now (depending where you measure, and granted with a fair amount of body fat) and I think they're too big.

    With just the wrist of 7.25 inches it calculates this for me:

    Chest 47 inches
    Waist 33 inches
    Hip 40 inches
    Bicep 17 inches
    Forearm 14 inches
    Thigh 25 inches
    Calve 16 inches
    Neck 17 inches

    Yes thats quite a bit more attainable. If you take where I am now and the "ideal weight" of 175-180lbs for my height....well that kinda fits! Basically slap 10lbs of muscle on my frame and I could see these being about right.

    Looks like I am a little outside the perfect proportions - my penis is too big for my frame.
