    Flexed. You measure your biceps flexed so its the same for the forearms.

    Look, I'll tell you how it's done. You flex your forearm to make it as big as possible. You can curve your wrist, but I think that will make it a slightly smaller measure. I would just keep a straight wrist. No curve in it. And for the elbow, just keep it straight. Not 90 degrees or 45. Just keep a straight elbow. If you bend your arm in as much as possible, you would get a bigger measure, but it's wrong.

    OK, so here's how it's done short and simple. Flex forearm as if you were grabbing something. Don't curve the wrists. Keep your elbow straight. And finally, you measure it near the elbow, because that's where you are the biggest. Okay, I hope that helps.
