  • the finger wrapping at the wrist is not a bad way. you have a small build if your index finger and thumb overlap, medium build if they touch, and a large build if they do not touch.
    if you have a small build you should be at the small end of your bmi, and medium in the middle and large at the high end.

  • I don't know. I always read that if you can wrap your wrist with your pointer finger and thumb and they touch you're small build, if they don't medium etc. But I think that's a load of crap cause when I weighed 215lbs, I couldn't do it but now 68lbs later, I can. My bones didn't shrink, I just lost a bunch of weight. LOL

  • You can google body type and find tons of site's that will show you pictures of different body frame type. Select the one that best matches your body type.
