Body Frame Sizes

In order to refine and define theoretical weights, researchers added frame size as a factor.
The sizes are categorized into three categories: Small frame, medium frame and large frame.
The reason for this is that obviously bone structures vary in size and density from person to person. Equally obviously men and women have different structures. Bone mass and muscle mass all play a part in determining your optimal weight. Large boned people. There are two simple methods of determining frame size:

 

• Measuring the circumference of your wrist. This is by far the most straight forward
• Measuring the breadth of your elbow. This is a little more complex but provides a greater results range for the purposes of accuracy.
In order to do this:
Stand up.
Extend your arm forward so that it is horizontal and parallel to the ground.
Turn your hand so your palm is uppermost.
Bend your elbow so your forearm is at 90º to the ground.
Use the forefinger and thumb of your other hand to locate the narrow part of your elbow joint.
Use your same forefinger and thumb as a guage to determine your elbow breadth by measuring the gap between them with with a ruler or tape measure.
Compare the value with the tables below.
