Is this just supposed to be "ideal proportions" as compared to the statues or is it supposed to have broader implications than that? I'll bite though.

Anyway, my wrist size is about 6.25-6.5" which yields (actual is in parentheses):

Chest: 40.625-42.25 (40)
Waist: 28.44-29.58 (28)
Hip: 34.53-35.91 (34)
Bicep: 14.63-15.21 (13)
Forearm: 11.78-12.25 (10.75)
Thigh: 21.53-22.39 (19.5)
Calf: 13.81-14.36 (13.75)
Neck: 15.03-15.63 (14.5)

I'm relatively close to all of the measurements by within about ~2 inches on each or less than 1 on some. I am relatively light at 5'8" 135 so I mean... whatever. I guess I should bulk up or something, haha. :-) Interesting but not really useful imo.

edit: Oh yeah, I forgot to add that it is intruing to note though that I am primarily on a routine of bodyweight exercises along with a few weighted exercises like DLs. I suppose this is much how the Greco-Romans got their "ideal" human as the functionality of my training is very much like theirs is supposed to be. I'd like to see how many of the elite gymnasts match up to this profile.
