Default Determining Natural Arm Size Potential

Simple rule to determine NATURAL arm size potential.

Measure your wrist circumference, and the add 10 inches to this measurement.

This is for a lean wrist.

So a 6.5" wrist would equal a potential for a 16.5" arm.

Obviously, this rule isn't meant to present a maximal wall. But it does present a solid and reasonable natural goal.

This rule appliers to lean physiques, 8-12% bodyfat or less. At 40% bodyfat it would be possible to add about another 2.5 inches to your arm size because of the extra fat.

So, when factoring in bodyfat:

--10% = Wrist + 10 inches
--20% = Wrist + 10.5 to 11.5 inches
--30% = Wrist + 11.5 to 12 inches
--40% = Wrist + 12 to 12.5 inches

Example...you have 7.2 inch wrists and 30% bodyfat. This would equate to a potential arm size of about 18.7" to 19.2" arms at that weight.
