  • your chest - waist drop

    curious what people are at. might as well post bodyweight and waist measurements and height for more stats

    im 5'9 173 42.5-32.5 drop for 10inch, still can drop a few on the waist.

    what got me curious was seeing steve reeves and frank zanes 20-24inch drops. WTF? :sammich:

    also, it seems the chest measurement is inflated by lats. do people spread during the measurements to get to 54inch??

    I'm fat at present but 5'9, 250 and 50-38. Chest/back is no pump, haven't worked out properly in a month due to shoulder injury. Waist measurement is post dinner and biggest time of the day.

    Still fat.

      Just went from a 56-42 to 50/52-36 and SHOULD be able to get to a 50-32 eventually. Its weird cause I now believe my waist/hips are a lot narrower than I thought they were. Lol
      A better measurement would be shoulder width cause I've known some barrel chested guys that weren't really WIDE but had big measurements.

        how does one properly measure shoulder width? flexed relaxed spread shoulder blades measured around delts?

          You could do shoulder circumference but darden or jones used to do width by using what basically was a large ruler with a slide on it...kinda like the things they measure shoe size with if ya can picture what I'm saying. But even shoulder circumference would be a better judge of width and "V" taper than chest measurement. Imo

              Recently went to get fitted for a suit - measured 47in chest and 33in waist at 6'0" and 214lbs. Needless to say, they had to do a lot of alterations.
