    For me, forearms are there, neck is past it, and everything else has a ways to go...but it doesn't take into account one important thing either...AGE!

    Try to build all that with naturally low test!
    I do because I can.
    I can because I do.

    Squat, bench, chin, deadlift, dip, row. The rest is secondary.

    I don't know why, but for me, only my forearms and calves have anywhere to go...my upper arms and neck blew the calculator out of the water. It is interesting though...how many people are using this as a waypoint on the way to gear do you think?

    and Mike, I feel your pain, I'm 6' with 6.5 inch wrists (at 205 and 13%) but small bones are supposedly better for aesthetics.

    keep in mind everyone...

    the studies that the calculator was developed from did not make use of HST I would think we can all naturally grow larger than the calculator suggests.

    question about this:

    <div></div><div id="QUOTEHEAD">QUOTE</div><div id="QUOTE">Predicted Maximum Stats at 8% Bodyfat
    Lean body weight:</div>

    where it says &#39;lean body weight&#39;, is that total body weight, or do i need to divide by 0.92 to get my total body weight?

    I&#39;ve been assuming it&#39;s the latter. There&#39;s no way the measurement numbers add up if &quot;Lean Body Mass&quot; = Total weigh at 8% body fat.

    The use of &quot;lean body weight&quot; is confusing. A &quot;total weight&quot; and &quot;Lean Body Mass&quot; stat would be better. Still a nice little tool though.

    <div></div><div id="QUOTEHEAD">QUOTE</div><div id="QUOTE">~5&#39;9&quot; - 5&#39;10&quot; is average male height, so there&#39;s a certain logic there </div>

    I decided to recheck this. At 73 inches height, 7 for wrist and 9 for ankle, I came up with the following:

    Weight: 200.66
    Chest: 47.77
    Bicep: 17.10
    Forearm: 13.69
    Neck: 16.90
    Thigh: 24.73
    Calf: 16.72

    My legs are doing well apparently - calves are at that size right now and my thighs are 26 inches... Weird. Everything else is below what the calculator gives me. I&#39;ve got about two inches to gain on biceps, a half an inch on forearms, six inches on chest (yeah, it&#39;s my worst bodypart) though strangely I only need to gain a half an inch on my neck.
    I must be proportioned strangely. Oh well, at least I&#39;ll never become one of those guys with a huge upper body and chicken legs to support it.
    PRs:

    Squat - 485 lbs
    Bench - 315 lbs
    Deadlift - 635 lbs
    Total - 1435 lbs
