As much as the proportions obsessives like to torment members of the board with their comments about torso and arm legnth, there really is a range of each at every height. Here is an example of two men of around the same age who were both a little taller when they were younger, but are both agreed to be about 192 cm tall now. Hasselhoff clearly has longer legs and a shorter torso, but thin arms that hang longer because they start from higher up. Lundrgen has shorter legs, but a longer torso, and his muscular arms are clearly shorter because they don't hang as low on him:

Great post SysOp!!!

Exactly my point. There are all kinds of proportion variations at any height!


Both these man are proportionate in their own way while being the same height.


Thanks for posting it but I am afraid even that will not convince the proportion obsessed like Quintoxic for example. ..


Have nice weekend

SisOP,

I dont think that you can perfectly judge theyr proportions from this picture.I wouldn't say that lundgren has shorter arms...
My impresion from this picture is that his head appears a little bigger than Hasselhoff's and maybe from here the impresion of shorter arms.
Just make an exercise and cover their heads and than maybee the perception changes a little.

Anyway my point is that is very hard to judge proportions from photos like this...

IMO it's clear that Hasselhoff has about 4-5 cm longer arms.

Humeral length looks different, forearms are much less discernible.

Good point Captain America. I didn't notice this though it's pretty obvious. So it seem there is room for AL?

Check out this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Human_arm_bones_diagram.svg

From this picture it seems that your humerus bone should be longer than Ulna and Radius (bones of the forearm) if you're healthy.

I don't think any doctors do forearm lengthening out there. Radius and Ulna bones which form the basic structure of the forearm are just too narrow for that. The Radius also has a noticable curve so it's impossible to insert a straight metal rod inside. Basically if you can't lengthen Radius you can't lengthen your Ulna either. AL is only for the upper arm.

Ulnar & (and i assume radial) lengthening do exist, but you'd have to be pretty insane to put yourself through this:

Surely you'd be better off lengthening your humerus than your radius/ulna because your fingers/hands are controlled from muscles in your forearms and stretching your forearms might interfere with your fine motor control.

Than said how many people truly spend time sizing up each others proportions anyway?  I expect not many outside of artists and distraction osteogenesis obsessives.

i want to do 1.8 cm in my forearms, it can be done, the radius and ulna, its true, are narrow, and due to the curved shape when you lenghted this bones, thy become thinner in the middle, (this is what i read in this board, acord to some doctor, i think was dr Sarín) but even so, there are cosmetic forearms lenghteningh, (max 5cm) if we aiming for muche less than that we should be fine,  i hope...

Well said. Tall ppl ( ppl with longer wing spans) usually have longer humerus.  Apo stated that his friend who was +20cm taller than him ( before LL) also had a forearm thats was only 2 cm longer than his. This means that the remaining +15cm difference in wingspan was all in his humerus since there shoulder span was also roughly the same.
