Tracking your results is great for motivation, and helps you learn what works for your body. This involves taking measurements and a couple of photos. We know this can be uncomfortable, but it’s worth it when you can see the ‘after’. Here are some handy tips on how to take your body measurements:
Only weigh in once a week and ideally on the same day at the same time.
Measurements should be made using a flexible body measurement tape. Measurements are done to the nearest half centimetre.
Chest measurement should be made at the nipple or the middle of the breast.
Bicep measurements should be made at the midpoint of the upper arm; typically the widest point on the upper arm.
Waist measurement should be made at the midpoint between the lowest rib and the iliac crest (the highest point on the hips) – typically the smallest point on the waist.
Hip measurement should be made at the widest point around the buttocks.
Thigh measurements should be made at the midpoint of the upper leg.
