A question on reach
 
I am 5'8 (68 inches)
My reach is 5'7.5 (67.5 inches)

What... Does this mean?

Thanks

Well, I understand it like this: if you stretch your arms to the sides parallel to the floor (like in famous Leonardo da Vinci image), the distance between tips of your fingers would be 5'7.5 (67.5 inches)

When you stretch your arms out to the sides and measure from finger tip to fingertip and go across your back it is 67.5 inches. It's not the most accurate way to gauge reach, a better way is arm pit to end of the fist.
