      I'm 19 and I measured my shoulder width to be 22.4 inches across. I'm 6ft 2 and I've never worked out before. I'm 260 lbs. I've started losing weight but I have questions?

      1) When I lose weight, will my shoulder span go down? Or will it remain about the same?


      2) If I worked out, I could have like 24 inch shoulders? Isn't that a little too much even for 6ft 2?

      24' all around your shoulders or just in front/back?

      I have 44' shoulders all around and they are small as ever

      I stood with my back against the wall. I relaxed my arms and made two pencil marks where my left shoulder ends and right shoulder ends. Then I measured the distance between the points. = 22.4 inches

      Interesting. Never seen that before lol

      Try using a tape measure around
      your shoulders

      Edit: also, wide shoulders are good in bodybuilding
