In summary, to approximate your body as a volume of cylinder, you could remove both arms and lay them along your legs. You could remove both feet and pack them around your neck. The final cylindrical package would be as long and round as possible.f

How to solve this problem?
Well, we have no idea how big you are but perhaps you could imagine trying to squeeze a full-size replica of yourself into as short as possible a length of round pipe. So for ease of transport, you could remove both arms and lay them along your legs. Perhaps remove both feet and pack them around your neck. How long and how round would you estimate the final cylindrical package to be?

Now determine the volume of that cylinder, in cm^3.
