Track Your Statistics:

Whenever you begin an exercise program or change your exercise goal or focus it is important to do measurements and chart your statistics so you have a baseline starting point. It is a good idea to do your measurements and statistics every 8 to 12 weeks so you can see your progress and chart your success. When doing testing the most important thing is to be consistent. Where the same clothes, aim for the same time and day of the week and use the exact same equipment to get the most accurate results. When tracking statistics, I like to include; body measurements, body fat, weight, flexibility, endurance, crunches (how many crunches you can do in 1:00) and push ups (how many push ups you can do in 1:00.)

When doing body measurements follow these guidelines:
Measure on bare skin when possible or wear the same clothing each time. Remember the more consistent you are with the location of the tape measure the more accurate the results. For ease of measuring and best results use a soft tape measure.

Biceps, right & left

Measure at the smallest part of your torso, just under your ribs
