Just so we know what we are talking about.

John McCallum’s realistic measurement ideals for hard gainers

1.6.5 times your wrist gives chest girth
2.85% of the chest girth produces the hips
3.Take 70% of the chest girth for the waist
4.53% of the chest gives the thigh girth
5.The neck size is 37% of the chest
6.36% of the chest produces the upper arm girth
7.The calves come out a little less at 34%
8.The forearms get 29% of the chest measurement


Reeves Ideal

Steve Reeves Measurements:

Arms: 18.5 inches
Calves: 18.5 inches
Neck: 18.5 inches
Thighs: 27 inches
Chest: 54 inches
Waist: 30 inches
In his “classic physique” book, Reeves said his formula for “ideal proportions” was as follows:

Muscle to bone ratios:

Arm size = 252% of wrist size
Calf size = 192% of ankle size
Neck Size = 79% of head size
Chest Size = 148% of pelvis size
Waist size = 86% of pelvis size
Thigh size = 175% of knee size
