    Take a tape measurer, wrap it around the arm and read.
    If you're on the teenboard, wrap it around twice.
    It's not as hard as you think it is.
    Educate yourself, but stop thinking too much...

    What's your age?
    What does your waist measure?
    What is your body composition (fat, chubby, skinny, etc)?
    How long have you been training?

    I'd say that is good progress. Since you say you're a bit overweight, some of that is fat, but even so that is some good size.

    I think a mistake I made a while ago. (Now Fixed) is that I never worked on my forearms or wrists, so I guess myabe that was preventing me from doing more, since there was nothing to hold on to for the muscle....
