When someone says “I have x inch arms,” what’s generally accepted as the procedure they used for measuring them? Biceps flexed and pumped, biceps flexed and cold, elbow bent and biceps cold/relaxed, elbow bent and biceps pumped/relaxed, arm straight and relaxed, or what? Mine are 19" flexed and pumped, but they certainly don’t look as big as a lot of people who quote theirs as smaller and I can’t imagine the excess fat on my arms adding THAT much to the measurement if I’m doing it right. I figure my frame might just be abnormally large, but I bet it’s more likely that I’m doing the measurement wrong.
Would really appreciate some guidance on this. I don’t want to quote mine as being 19" when they aren’t and end up looking like I was trying to bolster my size.
