Just an interesting thing I noticed this morning.

I weighted myself - 55 kg.

Then I realised the circumference of one of my thighs was 53 cm.

Just a coincidence for me, or something that holds for everyone?

So, if you don't mind, please let me know your weight (kg) and thigh circumference (cm). It'll be kind of cool if there is a trend.

I think it's just coincidence? Maybe men and women are different, but I can't imagine you would gain a cm for each kg.

Would be interesting to see if that's the magical middle number though, maybe right around your weight is where a lot of ppl equal their thigh circumference.

I was curious though so i checked, I'm about 90kg now, with 65cm thigh.

Hahaha. I'm thinking it's probably coincidence but there is probably some sort of trend.

It's probably got a few different series for runners, body builders, cyclists etc. Of course, a person's bone structure and where they tend to lose/store fat probably effects this as well.

So I'd hypothesize that there is no linear relationship, but there would be some sort of logarithmic trend. It'd be interesting to see what the trend is!
