7.5 is a larger wrist. Mine is 6.4 when at 12-18% bodyfat. In general in a perfect world you can aim for a ripped (6 to 12% bodyfat) arm 10 inches larger than your wrist since.

Your arms can appear 1-2 inches bigger than this with 15-30% bodyfat of course. Mine are currently near 19, but will be more around 16.5 ripped.

Also, check out this article I wrote:

Determining Natural Bodybuilding Potential Muscle and Brawn Bodybuilding and Powerlifting.

It bases bodyweight (lean mass) potential on a large wrist size of 7.5, which just so happens to be yours.

You're welcome. 7.5 is definitely on the bigger side. It's not Andre the Giant or anything, but it's definitely big for your size. Small boned "hardgainers" (naturally weak) like me tend to be 6.5 (ish) and under.

Larger bones can mean a greater potential for strength.

You have that right BTB. I had to messure for my Versa Grip order and I only have a 6 1/2" to 6 3/4" wrist. I'm also a hard gainer.

Draw back on small wrists (not bad just draw back) Less padding/protection to the tendents from out side hits. But this is just my thoughts.

As a BBer small wrists make your forarms and upper arms look bigger. :rockon:

this is true cause even though my wrists arent to small they make my 14" arms look alot bigger(hopefully 17 to 18" in a few years)
