Does anyone know where to find an accurate height and weight chart? I work with some people who want to know where they stand with ideal height and weight

check out a bmi chart, imo they are crap they dont factor in muscle mass. There is also a waist to hip ratio, but overall I believe body fat measurement is the best measure of fitness

I found a formula for ideal body dimensions based on McCallum Formula. My measurements are way out of proportion using this formula. Formula is based on wrist size. The following formula has my wrist size inserted into calculation:

Wrist measurement: 6.5"

Chest (Wrist * 6.5) = 42.25"
Hips (Chest * .85) = 35.91"
Waist (Chest * .70) = 29.51"
Thigh (Chest * .53) = 22.39"
Neck (Chest * .37) = 15.63"
Arms (Chest * .36) = 15.21"
Calves (Chest * .34) = 14.37"
Forearms (Chest * .29) = 12.25"

This formula must be for "normal" people. My arms are over 15% larger than the formula.

Those aren't "my" measurements - those are what the formula provides as ideal.

Mine are like:
Chest - 47"
Waist - 33" (I got wide hips, like a girl )
Thigh - 26"
Arm - 18" (cold flexed)
Forearm - 13.75"
Calf - 16.75"

Based on that formula - I'm outta proportion xcel

I know that weren't your measurements. You said your bis were too big I was saying no by using the formulas your chest is too small. HA ok not funny.

Your measurements are pretty close to mine (my waist is a bit larger) unfortunately I am a number of inches taller which means I am small and you are BUFF> • Big A
