I'm 67.5", 188lbs at 16%BF. Biceps flexed is 15.375. At my leanest (8%) at
160lbs my right bicep was 14.5". I could curl 3x10/35#.



PS. I submit that the bicep size corrolates to some ratio of leg length and
shoulder width, i.e., I'm shortish and have a long torso/wide shoulders
which gives me a shortish bicep and a larger flexed size.

Good genetics in this case.
