    I bet my calves are smaller than my biceps.

    Do you not work your calves?

    Yeah... calves, biceps and neck. My calves and neck are about the same... both almost 2" smaller than biceps.

    I like my calves to be larger by an inch or so. I measure not flexed.

    Hey! No fair. Haven't worked on my legs since Oct. 7, 2006 because of surgery and haven't hit the gym since Jan 31st.

    Arms - 14.5"
    Calf (right) - 15"
    Leg - 24"

    All unflexed measurements from now... I had my calves up to 16.5" and quads at 25" back in Oct. 06.

    I would gather that to be the norm for most women.

    arms 16"
    neck 18" (unflexed)
    calves 15"
