Girths Measurement: Forearm

anthropometrics May 22, 2023

To measure forearm girth, follow these steps:

1. Use a flexible tape measure or a piece of string that can be measured afterward.
2. Stand with your arm extended in front of you and your palm facing up.
3. Locate the bony prominence on the side of your elbow, called the lateral epicondyle.
4. Place the tape measure or string just below the lateral epicondyle, snugly but not too tightly around your forearm.
5. Make sure the tape measure or string is level and straight around your forearm.
6. Read the measurement on the tape measure or mark the string and measure it afterward.

Forearm girth measurement can be used to track changes in muscle size and strength, which can be helpful in evaluating fitness progress and rehabilitation from injury.
