Body frame size calculator
First of all, calculate the size of your body’s frame or skeleton to help plan your ideal weight.
Another way of finding how much weight you would benefit from losing in your diet and exercise plan is to use body size. Have you ever heard people say they are big boned? Well this is what they mean:- Some people have neat little narrow frames, while others have a more rangy skeleton.
So bone mass and muscle mass all play a part in deciding your ideal weight. This is why ideal weight charts have a range of weights that are ideal for your height.
There are two simple methods of determining your frame size:-
- Measuring the circumference of your wrist, which is by far the easiest.
- Measuring the breadth of your elbow, which is a bit harder to do but gives better accuracy.
Why it matters
Knowing the size of your body frame will help you plan your weight loss goals more accurately. Most of all, knowing if you have a small frame will show you that you need to lose more weight than if you weighed the same but had a large frame.
