    What is your height and wingspan?

    What's your height and wingspan? I have short arms. My wingspan is 6'4" (76 inches).
    Wingspan (aka armspan) is the distance from fingertip to fingertip of the outstretched arms. A great wingspan is a mark of dominance, masculinity, and greatly contributes to athleticism and overall weight and size.
    This is Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man. It depicts a height equal to armspan as the ideal for a male of about 5'5".


    However, for us taller men, having a long armspan is natural, due to our broader shoulders and larger hands. In fact, the average armspan is 6'0", while the average height is 5'10". NBA players tend to have armspans about 6-10 inches greater than their heights, as do many linemen and other big athletes. It is a mark of dominance.

    So, what's your height and wingspan? (Wingspan can easily be measured vertically on a wall, on the floor with one hand touching a wall, etc.)

    If Michael Jordan were to grow into his wingspan, he'd be 7+ feet tall. He's under 6'5" though, and his robust build also makes him an excellent athlete. (There is a strong correlation between being black and having a large wingspan, just to share.)

    Figures. So am I. Scandinavians tend toward narrow shoulders and less lengthy frames. (This is, of course, in relation to height. Scandinavians are also very tall.)

    Virtually every piece of data from the NBA and NFL draft, comparing white and black players, agrees with this. To give an extreme example, white Shawn Bradley is 7'6" with a 7'6" wingspan. Black Manute Bol is 7'7" with an 8'6" armspan.
    Asians also tend to have shorter appendages.

    Here are some names. To give you perspective, wingspan:height differentials like these are virtually nonexistent in white athletes.
    MMA Fighters:
    Jon Jones - 6'4", 7'1" wingspan
    Mo Lawal - 5'11", 6'6" wingspan
    Alistair Overeem - 6'4", 6'10" wingspan

    NBA Draft:
    Kawhi Leonard - 6'6", 7'4" wingspan
    Will Blalock - 5'11", 6'6" wingspan
    Lester Hudson - 6'0", 6'9" wingspan
    Nate Robinson - 5'8", 6'1" wingspan
    Dwayne Wade - 6'4", 6'11" wingspan
    Josh Akognon - 5'10", 6'7" wingspan
    Rajon Rondo - 6'1", 6'9" wingspan
    Jason Maxiell - 6'5", 7'3.25" wingspan
    Beejay Anya - 6'8" with a 7'9" wingspan

    NFL Draft:
    Jarriel King - 6'4", 7'2.5" span
    Jevon Kearse - 6'4", 7'2" wingspan
    Tyron Smith - 6'5", 7'1" wingspan
    D'Brickashaw Ferguson - 6'6", 7'3" wingspan
    There's also a guy who's 6'3" with a 7'2" wingspan. I forgot his name.

    Here is a completely random black model; notice that the elbows extend below the bellybutton, the broad shoulders, and the long forearms. This 6'0" model probably has a wingspan of about 6'8".


    Here is a random white model. Notice the elbows well above the bellybutton, the short forearms... 6'0" height, probably a 6'0" wingspan.


    Also, read this: http://www.fpnotebook.com/endo/exam/ArmSpn.htm

    And worth mentioning: NFL arm length measurements. It is insane how much longer the arms of black players are than those of white players of the same height. The difference is usually 2"+ per arm.

    btw op, whats ur standing reach? i got a pretty decent reach of 7'10, even though my wingspan is small. its weird because my friend has a 6'4 wingspan at 6'2 and has the same standing reach as me
    My standing reach is 8'3". Not bad; not good. Not gonna get scouted for it (luckily, I've never played any sports... I look at wingspan as a contributor to aestheticism). My hands are 8 inches long.

    The average hand is 7.5 inches long (from palm base to middle fingertip). My hand span is also respectable: 9.5 inches, similar to many NFL Draft Picks my same height.

    One thing though, consider the torso length differences between those two pictures. Whites seem to tend to have longer torsos in my experience. I have a very long torso. That white model seems to have relatively short upper arms as well, but I certainly do see what you're saying.

    narrow shoulders? quite the contrary

    also, my wingspan is 5'11, but i think i might actually be taller because of very crooked back. would fit into my family, where short limbs are not uncommon

    Isn't this why white people and asians tend to be better swimmers in general? And why they're generally also bad sprinters?
