Default Body measurements

Just did my measurements.
I'm bigger than John McCallum’s chart ideals, but symmetrically little smaller than Steve Reeves ideal.

Q? At what body fat are these measurements to be taken at? Everyone retains fat different and in different areas.

Plus back in Steve's day they didn't get as ripped as present day natural bodybuilders. So in this point Steve's measurements would be at a month out by now days show prep and stage body fat standards. Thus making them a bit high from his true standard for a modern day stage size.

I can see McCallum's being more accurate for a modern day person on stage at 4% body fat or diced and shredded.
NOTE: These sizes now days are a good veteran amateur natural size. Many natural pro's are way beyond these sizes. Goal should be to keep the equal gain beyond these figures for each measurement. Perfect symmetry is what they were driving for..
