    I recall reading numerous times that it would be your limit.. + 10" on your wrist size.

    this article:
    http://molecularbiology.forums.biotechniques.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=8300

    states that it is based on the length of your muscles "belly." the longer your biceps belly and shorter the tendons, the greater the cross section of your bicep can potentially grow.

    another interesting fact: if you flex your biceps at a 90 degree angle and measure the distance between the inside of your elbow to the inside of your contracted bicep, this distance will never change it is genetically determind. (according to the article)

    use a piece of string/yarn/whatever then compair up to a tape measure or yard stick. or if you're swole enough just wrap the metal yard stick around your bicep. lol

    lol thats retarded. the further away your insertion is from the elbow, the peakier the bicep. those distances are saying the smaller the distance the better? look at levrone's and wheeler's distance between the insertion and elbow, which bicep would you choose?

    its talking about the bottom of the bicep head, and the longer it is the larger cross section it has thus the more potential to grow....
    a pyramid with a larger base has more room to grow than a pyramid with a smaller base...

    besides we arent even talking about how peaky your bicep is we are talking about overall upper arm circumference and your bicep's potential for mass in general. did you read the article?
