Measuring your body: 101

When you start a new workout program, it's best to take your measurements so that you can track your progress. Here is the recommended way to measure:

Chest: Measure directly across your nipple line

Upper arms: Measure 7 inches down from the tip of your shoulder and be sure to measure both arms (don't flex your biceps or triceps)

Waist: Measure at your belly button

Hips: Measure at the widest area of your hips

Abductors: Measure just under your butt (feet tight together)

Thighs: Measure 6 inches down from your inseam and be sure to measure both thighs (have your legs apart and weight evenly distributed on both feet; don't stand on one foot while either thigh is being measured)

I really like the way you organize the information. We all know that Exercise has been clearly proven advantageous to both cardiovascular health and maintenance of strength and flexibility in any individual throughout the aging process. Thanks for posting.
