Guys with barrel chest only have to move the bar a few inches and they get a rep in. I have long arms so I have to move the bar a much longer way. 

what's your ape index?

I prefer Simian index.



um, ok. what is it?

Well I'm no orangutan but closers to chimp if you must.

not sure why you're being so coy over a piece of trivia.
I'm honestly not even sure what's happening anymore.

recap:

Guys with barrel chest only have to move the bar a few inches and they get a rep in. I have long arms so I have to move the bar a much longer way. 

what's your ape index?

my ape index is 1.055 ('long' but not extreme - typical for climbers/swimmers/etc., not ideal for weight lifting/etc.)
what is yours?

My ape index is 1.015 but my legs are so short it's really hard to buy pants that are not too long for me. Before the internet, I always had to roll up my cuffs. Now I can get my size on line.

I have that problem, mostly because I wear my pants low, and it's hard to get _normal_ (not brands that specialise in that style) pants baggy enough without them getting stupidly long, which really makes little sense.

I could only wish I was so clever as to come up with that whimsical term/idea :D


I brought it up because we should be careful not to confuse 'I have slim/slender/bony arms' with 'I have long arms'. it's one more nice way of scienc'ing up what we state as true :)

and it's just good reasoning...just because someone isn't bulky doesn't mean theirs arms are long, there could be other reasons they appear thin (it's just a science/no excuses thing). If someone does actually have long arms, it can be helpful to know ... it makes me feel better about my shitty bench press and all the arm wrestles I lose, and it tells me what sports might be best for me if excelling is a big factor in the fun I can have with them.

Just had my first go at an American Gym (Golds).  The biggest workout was for my ageing brain converting bloody pounds to kgs.

Every soup ladled to the hungry, every blanket draped over the cold signifies, in the final sense, a theft from my gigantic paycheck.
