Ape Index

Ape Index

Last night I measured my ape index. I used a site called http://www.ape-index.com . I typed in my height and arms length. It then divided my arm span by my height to work out my ape index. My ape index is 1.051. My arm span is 7.5cm more than my height.

This explains why all my long sleeved jackets and long sleeved tops are now short sleeved tops and jackets!

A positive ape index is supposed to be good for climbing. People with negative ape indexes are sometimes called T-Rex’s.

Michael Phelps the Olympic swimmer had an ape index of 1.04 so I am obviously a better climber than him!
