Posted by Scott_Herman - February 22nd, 2014

However, when it comes to your measurements you need to be as accurate as possible!

Accomplishing goals is what keeps us going and inaccurate measurements can leave you feeling discouraged.


Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you take your measurements.

  1. Always take measurements under the same conditions: Flexed or Unflexed.
  2. When taking measurements, make sure the tape is “snug”. Not too tight or too loose.

Measurement Locations

  • Forearm: Measure around the thickest part of the forearm.
  • Arm: Perform a bicep flex and measure the thickest part of your arm.
  • Neck: Simply measure around the neck.
  • Shoulder: Wrap the measuring tape around both shoulders.
  • Chest: Lift your arms up and wrap the measuring tape around your back and chest. Lower arms and take the measurement just above your nipple line.
  • Waist: Wrap the tape around your torso at the belly button. Do not suck in your gut!
  • Hip: Wrap the tape around the thickest part of your glutes / hips.
  • Thigh: Wrap the measuring tape around the thickest part of your thigh.
  • Calf: Wrap the measuring tape around the thickest part of the calf.

Now you can successfully update your measurements on your SHF profile! If you need more help be sure to check out the attached video!

The incline works the upper part of your pectoral muscles the decline the lower through a lot of people say there is no point of doing this I disagree and flat benching just does an all-around benefit for your pectoral muscle dissertation writer uk. The incline and decline help to target specific parts of your chest.
