BODY MEASUREMENT

BODY FRAME

 

Body Frame

To refine theoretical body weight, frame size as added as a factor. The size of the body frame naturally impacts the total body weight; bone structures vary in size and density from person to person.
Men and women have different structures. Bone mass and muscle mass all play a part in determining your optimal weight.


Body Frame sizes are categorized into three groups: Small frame, medium frame and large frame.
There are two simple methods of determining frame size:

  1. Measuring the circumference of the wrist.
  2. Measuring the breadth of your elbow. This is a bit more difficult but gives a wider range of results for accuracy.

The following tables are then used with the measurement to define the body frame category
