Chest: Measure the total circumference of your chest at its fullest point, just under your armpit.

  1. Waist: Place your hands on your hips and bend to the side. The indent on your side as you bend is your natural waist. Measure the total circumference at this point.
  2. Waist Jeans: Measure your circumference at a point about two inches below the belly button.
  3. Hip: Stand with your feet 6” apart. Measure the total circumference at the fullest point of your hip.
  4. Sleeve Length: With your elbow slightly bent, starting at your middle neck bone, measure to the point of your shoulder and down to your wrist bone. Or take a shirt that fits well and take the same measurement.
  5. Inseam: Stand with your feet 6” apart. Measure from the top of the leg/crotch to below the ankle. Or take a pair of pants that fit well and take the same measurement. 

Body measuring tips:

  • Generally, take measurements in an unflexed state and before your workout.
  • Keep the feet together, relax your muscles and stand up straight.
  • Consistency is essential - measure under the same conditions and using the same measuring equipment each time.
  • Pull the tape tight, keeping pressure against (but not pinching) the skin and ensure the tape is kept level and not at an angle.
  • To make sure the tape is positioned correctly, ideally, get someone else to take the measurements for you. If this isn’t possible take the measurements yourself in front of a mirror for better visibility.
  • Measure both sides of the body to accurately track progress and symmetry.
  • Always measure on bare skin and not over clothing.
