    Hi,

    I've read that measuring the wrist size can inform about how big it's possible to become.
    I've also found a training programm that gives target measures (chest, arms, legs...) just by entering the wrist size.

    Can someone tell me more about this ?
    What can we learn just by measuring wrist ?

    Regards
    Matthieu

    It will help you determine bone structure and body type (ectomorph, mesomorph, endomorph).

    There is some sort of formula that spits out "ideal" body measurements.

    http://www.sandowmuseum.com/ideal.html

    That's the first one google found.

    I think if you're a Meso it works much better then if you aren't.

    You can learn the circumference of your wrist.

    I know what you're getting at with body types, bone density, etc., but I wouldn't look at it too deeply in determining what your long term potential may be. I'd hate to see anyone measure their wrist, come out on the lower end, and think, "gee, I guess this means I can't get that muscular."

    I agree with this. Bones is one thing, muscles is another.

    The awesome statue shown above is
    in Italy, and shows the proportions the
    Victorians saw as "ideal" for the male.


    At least I have one part of me that is over proportioned. And no, not my head ;-)
