                                                Frame Size

Your frame size or body build is determined by the thickness of the bones in your elbows, knees, ankles,
and wrists. The Metropolitan Life Insurance Company offers this method of determining your body frame
size: Extend your arm and bend your forearm upward at a 90 degree angle. With your fingers straight,
turn the inside of your wrist toward your body. Place your thumb and index finger of the other hand on the
two prominent bones of the elbow. Measure the space between the fingers against a ruler or a tape
measure. Compare your measurement with the figures in the table below. Elbow measurements less than
those given indicate a small frame; greater measurements indicate a large frame.

It is important to consider body composition. If you are muscular and athletic, you may weigh more than a
sedentary person of the same height and frame size, yet you may be trim, while your sedentary
counterpart may be overweight. If your weight comes from muscle, you may fall technically into the
overweight category yet not be fat. However, in general, as you approach 20% or more above your
desirable weight, your excess weight usually comes from fat. Body fat percentage can be determined by
several methods, such as skinfold thickness, underwater weighing, total body water (hydrometry), and
whole body potassium.
