You have probably heard of an exercise and weight loss program for men called the adonis effect. They use the following ratios to determine the pefect body:

waist/height.447
shoulder/waist1.618


To use this chart:

Start with your height and multiply by .447 to get your ideal waist.
Multiply your waist by 1.618 to get your ideal shoulder mesurements.

Example:
If you are 5'10" that is 70 inches.
70 x .447 = 31.29 inch waist.
31.29 inch waist X 1.618 = 50.62 inch shoulders.


Perhaps you would rather use a calculator to determine your ideal body measurements. This calculator will give you information based not on your height or weight, but on your wrist size:
