Chest circumference in men

Physical development of a person occurs in accordance with certain biological laws and principles and reflects in each age period the level of quantitative and qualitative changes in the body and its functional capabilities. The processes of growth and development occur unevenly and depend on a huge number of external and internal factors, the fundamental of which are heredity and social environment.
Anthropometric indicators allow an objective assessment of the degree of physical development. The most important for the assessment are the growth or length of the body (in children), body weight and the circumference of the chest. It is necessary to take into account the existing national differences in anthropometric data, for some nationalities are characterized by low growth and a wide chest, for others, on the contrary, the standard is high growth and a narrow chest. On the wide chest in men read in the material of a colleague. A wide chest in women also occurs, this is also in the relevant publication.
In carrying out the research, they focus on anthropometric standards-averaged indicators characteristic of most people of a certain gender and age. Identified abnormalities may indicate some individual developmental features (for example, people engaged in some sports, the chest will be wider) or about the development of the disease. There are also certain variants of the norm, depending on the constitutional type. As is known, there are three types of physical development: asthenic, normostenic and hypersthenic, reflecting in a corresponding manner and on the size of the thorax. Most often, the shape of the chest can not be attributed to a particular type, the most common is a mixed type. To determine these parameters, measure the chest circumference by inhalation and exhalation, transverse and antero-posterior dimensions.
Method of measurement and calculation
Carried out using a centimeter tape. The researcher is offered to stand up straight, not straining and not holding his breath, and spread his hands to the sides. Behind the tape is superimposed, focusing on the lower corners of the blades, and in front - on the lower edge of the okolososkovogo circle. Then they offer to drop their hands and notice the indicators.
In an adult male, the circumference of the chest in the pause is within 85-92 cm. After this, the same index is measured with the maximum inspiration (up to the feeling of inability to breathe more) and with the maximum exhalation. By simple calculations one more important indicator is received, called a chest excursion, which allows to assess the functional capabilities of the respiratory system. The norm is considered if the chest can expand from 5 to 9 cm, more than 10 cm - the indicator is considered high, less than 4 cm - low. Depends on the excursion of the chest from the constitution, the mobility of the sternocostal joints and the type of breathing.
Evaluation of results
In assessing the harmony and proportionality of physical development, the calculated parameters of indices and coefficients are used to correlate various anthropometric data and characterize physical development as a whole. The most commonly used are various weight-growth indices, a life index, and proportionality factors.
The proportionality of the chest is estimated using the Erisman index. For men, this coefficient normally ranges from 3 to 6.
Using anthropometric data, you can determine the strength of a build. It is determined by the difference between the growth index and the sum of the body mass and the circumference of the chest on exhalation. A result of less than 10 indicates a strong build, and more than 36 - a very weak.
Account Alt: Tbh, It doesn't matter what genetics you have it all comes down to hard work. Btw this is coming from someone who has "good genetics"
BadKid95US: Ummm 😐 you let the MT fall down when you measures his chest like wtf you said just below armpits then you let it go for a second and it fell way lower so idk what to do should I also do that ?
Mahid M: 6 years ago I would have considered this guy to be "big" compared to me. Now if I saw this physique I'd wonder if he actually lifts or not. Its amazing how much change time can bring.
Jay Hunter: I measured my shoulders the way he described in the video and mine are 51 and i don't work out, is that wide? I'm about 15-17% bodyfat and my waist is 33 inches.
N ADAV: Good I searched this because now I have moved from basic warm ups to bodyweight pushups squats Let's see how much I can gain then I will hit gym and compare those It's my last year of college so I don't know now that where I will be working next year but I will be training that's for sure
SAHIL SHARMA: I have 14 Inch biceps, 43 inch chest, 32 waist, 22 thighs and I look skinny AF... But he looks good, why is that?
Nandan Bhat: That's 34inch because of muscle mass, which represents strong core right? I think there's nothing to be ashamed of a little bigger waist.

Mediastinum is in the center of the chest. Above it is bounded by the thorax, from below is the diaphragm, on the sides are the pleural cavities, in front - the sternum, behind - the ribs. Mediastinum is a cavity in which there are vital internal organs, a fatty layer, blood and lymphatic vessels.

Back in ancient times, a certain assumption was made that people with certain features of the body structure (habitus or constitution) have an increased risk of "acquiring" certain diseases.

There are a lot of diseases in which a frequent complaint is soreness in the chest of various localization. Sometimes even a highly qualified doctor is difficult to understand where the pain comes from. Pain in the projection of the chest can occur with diseases of the organs of this localization, lesions of the spine, ribs, cartilage, muscles of the cervical region or the shoulder girdle. Plus, the pain can be psychogenic.

Sometimes the reason for going to the doctor is the presence of veins on the chest. Someone considers this phenomenon as a cosmetic defect, someone seriously worries about their health. The veins on the chest can appear not only in adults, but also in children, beginning with the period of the newborn.

When any patient comes to see a doctor, he should ideally determine his anthropometric data, including the type of a person's constitution. There are 3 types of the human constitution: normostenic, hypersthenic and asthenic. To which of them you can be treated very easily. Belonging to the types of the constitution is determined by the shape of the chest.
