How big would a tall person;s arms have to be to be considered big?


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about How big would a tall person;s arms have to be to be considered big? within the Chat & Conversation category.

Excerpt: I'm 6'4" and the biggest my arms have been were 17". But obviously on my frame that's not big, at least to me anyway. My sense of largeness is skewed from hanging around huge people in the gym for so long. So I really don't know what's "big" or not. Some people think I'm huge for christ's sake. I'm thinking about 21" for arms at my size would be "big" to normal people. Thoughts?

    Sorry I can't think of anything witty to put here that will make people squint their eyes, and rub their chins and think "Ah..That Burning_Inside..So witty and smart.."

    I agree, my arms suck ass. I need a FEW more inches on them to look big enough for me. I`m 6ft 3.

    Heard that. I'm 6'1" and 18" arms look small on me. fall/winter cycle should hopefully bring 'em up to 19. I think over 6 feet ya almost gotta have 20"+ for them to look big.

    at 6'2.5" i got 17.5" arms... and of course they seem not big enough... i would like to get to at least 21" that should be "big" . just gotta make sure the calves are the same size too.

    I think i have 11 3/4 inch biceps...I'm not sure what you're talking about though. I do know i have really long arms which makes it hard to look big. I have the same problems with calves too. Anyways im 6'6" 194 lbs...

    20 inches on ANYONE will be huge regardless of how tall the individual is. that is, huge in the eye of 'normal' people. obviously for us they're never big enough. i'm 6'2 myself and i think 18" would be considered 'big' for normal people (non-bb'ers)
