OK, this may be a stupid question but is there a normal for the ratio of upper to lower arm length?
I have searched on Google and kind find accepted ratios for various birds and thousands of dog breeds but nothing for humans.
The thing that sparked this is that I have been having problems with the catch position for power cleans (also the bar position for front squats.) If I were to replicate the high elbows position I see in videos and photos the bar would be part way imbeded into my neck.
For the record my forearm is 11" (measured from the nub of the bone at my wrist to the point of my elbow) and my upper arm is 13" (measured from the point of my elbow to my shoulder.) This gives me an upper lower ratio of 1.18:1
