How Do You Measure Fitness Progress? You decide you want to get in shape. You go for runs every day for a week and try to eat less food. You step on the scale every day for a week and the numbers go down.
Yaaaay! You go to a cookout on a Sunday, step on. How often to take body measurements. When it comes to taking body measurements there’s no need for daily tracking as physical changes generally don’t change on a day-to-day basis.
We recommend taking weekly body logs, measured at the same time of day and under the same conditions. Because tracking your body measurements and fitness progress can be crucial for getting in shape! Those who succeed in transforming themselves are those who write everything down. As they say “That which gets measured gets improved.” Or as we tell our 1-on-1 Online Coaching clients, “track the problem to crack the problem!“. Taking measurements is hands down my favorite way to track progress.
For some people (especially those with a significant amount of muscle on their body), taking weekly or bi-weekly measurements is the easiest way to tell if they’re making progress. Knowing how to take body measurements, progress photos, and tracking your activity and food intake will shed major light on the holes in your plan of attack and change your perspective. If the numbers and photos are not reflecting positive change, it is time to start something new and make some changes in the right direction. What You Need to Take Your Measurements Don’t worry taking body part measurements is super easy.
All you need is a flexible tape measure (fabric, not metal!) and a method to track your results like one of my above measurement trackers. You can find fabric tape measures at almost any art & craft or fabric store near you. First things first: It’s important to take accurate measurements of your body before, during, and after your fitness program so you can track your progress — all you need is a measuring tape and a scale. Keeping Track of Your Body Measurements: Here is how you take 7 different body area measurements, plus your weight.
All you need is a tape measure (not the metal kind of course) and the blank body measurement chart you can download for free below. Remember to keep your muscles relaxed while you’re measuring. An accurate way to test your fitness progress is by taking tape measurements. Weighing yourself on a scale is a harder way to tell if you are actually making progress and can easily become discouraging.
The weight on the scale will fluctuate if you have more muscle or even if you had a big lunch. If you want to take a full body measurement to track your progress, do the above from the quick measure, as well as the following: Bust – Measure all the way around your bust and back Midway – Measure between the widest part of your hips and waist Knees – Measure just above the knee (around the leg).
