I checked out some images of Steve Reeves and I'd say he's got pretty much the "ideal" physique in my mind. Classic.

who can help you, lori? you've posted five question marks, zero questions. steve reeves was the man. so was vince gironda, jack lalanne, other NATURALS from history (did you notice the emphasis, there?). adapt their principles to accommodate your own life, and you're bound to get the results you want. hope that answers some of your question marks.

Just type 185 cm to inches (or whatever figures you want to convert) into google, it'll convert it for you.

I agree that Steve had a great look, but the calculator is a joke - says I should have a 58" chest and a 34" waist, essentially Arnold's measurements in his prime.

Well, Arnold was supposed to be the perfect specimen.

Arnold might have been the perfect specimen for a man on the Steroidsof his day. He WAS NOT natural. And now the magazine guys are nothing more than drug monsters. They take Anabolic Steroids, Androgenic Steroids, Human Groth Hormaone, Drugs to counteract the side effects of the Androgenic Drugs ( Like drugs to block the conversion of Testosterone to Estrogen, or to DHT, they have to take Lutinizing Hormones in the off season[if they have one] to get their testicles to regian size lost and function lost and that isn't all...Pain meds to do the heavy sets, especially leg exercises 'cause they can't take the pain) This is part of the many reasons why Body Building will NEVER be an Olympic Sport, it isn't REALLY a sport at all in the strictest sense.

I think the reason that chest measurements seem disproportionate is because they are measuring around the shoulders.

This Calculator is for laughs. It said I should have 58" chest 34" waist @5'8" and yet the weight should be only 175 lb. That must be a hollow man!! @@

Im 5'8 my measurements say I need a 50" chest 29"waist and be 175lbs. I dont see how we should be that far apart and also be at the same weight.

My arms are perfect but everything else is scrawny, apparently. I'll just wear sleeveless jackets and baggy pants.from now on

For those who clearly don't know how to measure.

1.Use your right hand for wrist and right knee for knee.
2. Don't measure the circumference of your waist but the pelvic bones from one end to another. (from the front)
3. It's OBVIOUSLY for guys and i have no idea why some girls would be so dumb to even ask the silly question of "is it for guys only?" seriously?

Mike W.-

When you say Pelvic "measured across" are you saying NOT to measure the pelvic itself in a circumerence? Also are you measuring the pelvic at the Iliac crest or... ??

Ol'd Guy

What is the "healthy" body fat calculation for the calculated weight? And since healthy body fat levels are different for different age groups, what should be a reasonable level for each male age group?
