    Question Ideal calf to arm ratio?

    Can someone tell me what the ideal ratio is? I've heard it needs to be 1:1 and I've heard less than 1:1 (arms bigger than calves). Right now I'm at about 14.75 calf vs 19 arm it seems like it makes my legs look funny.

    Where did you hear this?
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    If you have ever heard of steve reeves his calf to arm ratio was 1:1 (18.5 arms and calves) and he is considered one of the most aesthetic and symmetric bodybuilders of all time. Whenever i look at him it seems ideal to me. So i would go with 1:1

    This site has a proportion chart, all you have to do is type in your wrist measurements. And yes, I think your neck, upper arm and calves should be the same measurement. My post count is too low to post links but just type "ideal proportion" in the search (whole site).
