    how to properly measure arm size

    when you measure arm size are you supposed to measure them with the arms straight to the ground? and are you supposed to wrap the measuring ruler as tight as possible or just enough where there is no gap forming? Is it called cold flexed when you put your arms in a flexing position but don't relax your arm?

    my arms are 11.5 relaxed, 12 inches cold flex, 12.3 inches flexed. my biceps are pathetic and look the same when i flex or if i am cold flexing. how bad are my arms?

    doesn't matter, just record the measurements and make sure you do it the same way each time you measure them to see if your making any gains.

    personally, i measure my muscles while flexed, before workout, usually every 3 months or so.

    OP I suggest you fap with your right arm then measure your left flexed this will give you the best reading.

    Good luck

    Cold flexed is the default most people measure from.

    Cold flexed = flexed muscle w/o a pump

    Preworkout before warm up or anything flex and measure that's a cold flex measurement.

    ^^^^this...

    Some people put the measurement along with the word "cold" or "pumped".
