Measurement conditions should be the same each time to ensure accuracy. (Time, place, person taking the measurements)
Measurements to be measured in cm’s to ensure a greater accuracy.
To self measure you can purchase a myotape/orbitape as it makes it a lot easier as it autotightens with a button to help accuracy.
Each bodypart should be measured 3 times and an average taken from it. I insist you measure to a 0.1cm accuracy.
Why I like measurements to be taken regularly?
