Correct Body Measurements?


#1

I've never heard of a proper way to measure bodyparts until I came across this:

www.mm2k.com/muscle-measurements.html

Is there a general consensus on this? Is the wrist and hip approach correct?

Thnx!


#2

Its purpose is muscle size goals. I would not benefit because I've already surpassed their goal measurements, except for waist that is. Ongoing battle. The answer is no, this is not an accurate measuring tool. I don't believe this is a measure for your potential.


#3

No,there actually are standardized methods that exercise scientists use to measure.

Look up anthopometry on the internet, you should be able to find something.
