    Can you guys help?

    Hi there
    I'm not to sure if i'm posting this on the right forum so if i'm not apologies. Anyway, basically i'm a film studies student and i'm doing a paper on body building in films. In one part of the paper i discuss how Arnold came along in films and changed how the action hero looked and how others followed after him but were never the same size. In order to prove this point i want to put the bicep and chest measurements of Van Damme, Stallone and Vin Diesel's against Arnold's. The only problem is i don't know their measurements. I found one Van Damme site it said his biceps are 19 inches which i think is way off. I thought i'd ask you guys as you all got pretty good knowledge of body building. If any of you could hazard a guess at Van Dammes, Stallones and Vin's biceps you would really be helping me out. Would i be right in thinking that around the time of Commando arnolds were about the 20inch mark? I know this is a bizarre post but if anyone has the time, could you please help me out.

    van dammes WERE only around 18, same with rocky and vinny.vinny maybe had 19's but i doubt he ever broke 20. your forgetting, hollywood makes everyone look different, no matter what your doing or how your doing it.

    when arnold had a 59 inch chest girth, his arm measuerments were 22 inches cold off season..........these 3 "movie stars" you listed are un comparable to arnold.

    i do like to watch rocky IV sometimes though

    I would say it is nearly impossible to give an accurate guess by looking at pictures. Pictures are doctored, and movies are shot to enhance the looks as well. Many of these "big" movie stars are a lot shorter than you think and therefore weigh less than you would think. I bet if you hit up a book store you can find books on these guys that have the info you need. Im sure you arent the first person to do research on the subject.

    As I said in the other thread you started. All of them no more than 15-16 inches.
