PS.) Lee carpenter jeans. Also, I like to wear military BDU pants and storts. You can get them in surplus catalogs in solid colors (black, tan, blue, gray, OD green).

Okay, I did the calculator thing:

Height: 66 in/ Wrist: 6.75 in/ Ankle: 10 in

Chest: Predicted = 46.5 in/ Actual = 46.5"
Biceps: Predicted = 15.8 in/ Actual = 17"
Forearms: Predicted = 12.5 in/ Actual = 12.5"
Neck: Predicted = 15.4 in/ Actual = 17"
Thighs: Predicted = 26 in/ Actual = 27"
Calves: Predicted = 17.4 in/ Actual = 17.75"

PS.) Is it weird that I have a 10" ankle? I'm sure I measured at the smallest point.

I don't know if it's weird. I assumed where you had a 7" wrist, the same as me, your ankle would be the same as mine. I just checked again, 9".

As for my measurements vs the calculated since I've only been working out for about 3 years I'm well below the max. I'm closer with the lower body than the top though.

I think a lot of early bobybuilders were somewhat top-heavy, and this may be reflected in the predicted measurements.

My ankle was somewhere a notch below 9.75.

Does anyone know the height measurements of John Farbotnik, George Eiferman, Reg Park, John Grimek, Jack Delinger and Steve Reeves?
