Default average arm size

Any ideas on what average arm size is un-pumped. Just curious.

Average who? so many variables. Think about it a 700 lb man might have a 29 inch arm. Might say only about 3% have arms larger than 16". I can guess as good as anyone.


un-trained and not obese = 12.5

Trained, no drugs or supplements = 14.75

This is a great post...everybody..post!!!!
With arm size, so does weight. Read lean body mass.
I'll start with my own. 190lbs, long ass arm and 15" 85lb. curl.
My goal is 205 and 16". 95 to 105lbs...another thing we should do is put some poundages with the measurements, I have no prblem with that.

I'd say that the average size of an unpumped arm is about...an inch smaller than pumped? Something like that. Other than that, I think rtestes is probably quite close, just a little low in my eyes...

Why don't you start a thread on that topic? Individual arm sizes won't tell us anything about the average, especially in a forum where most are seriously into weight lifting.

It won't give you a good idea about average arm size, it'll give you an idea about average arm size for those who exercise, and feel like posting about it. There's a big difference as I see it.

My stats can be found in my journal (at least those from a few weeks ago), or I'd be happy to post them in a "What's your arm size?"-thread.

5'7"... OK. I'm exaggerating a quarter inch or so. Currently a pudgy 170... around 15% bf ..

15.5" cold... Pumped.. no idea... never took a tape measure to the gym with me. Rtestes... no drugs here...

Curl... no idea... I've done reps with up to 115 but usually work bi's after back so the highest I usually go is 85 lbs. Weight really doesn't mean alot to me.

By pumped, are we talking about normally flexed, or flexed after a bicep (or back) workout?

I measure with my arm out like I am hitchhiking. I do that because I see that when the arm is hanging it sometimes presses against the body and measures larger.

arm out to side with thumb up = 14.25
arm flexed after two sets of dips and curls = 16.25

14.5 inches un-pumped. About 165 5 '9. No juice or supplements. Everyone tells me that my arms look huge and I think that they are maybe average or a little bigger

When you say not pumped, do you mean flexed or not flexed?
