    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!
