    measuring you waist?


    Strange question, I didn't know where to post it.

    When measuring your waist, are you supposed to flex your abs, relax your abs, or inhale & "suck in" as much as possible?

    Would like to know the answer to this too... being extremely overweight when I was a kid, I used to suck in my gut all the time, haha. So now, sucking in my gut, while simultaneously flexing my abs, is my natural position.

    Personally, I "stand at attention" as if I were being yelled at my a drill instructor when I measure.

    I tense the abs somewhat but I don't intentionally try to suck it in. That's just a head game. Flexing your abs like that will give you a consitant base. The fat around or on then still jiggles.The key is to do it the same way every time.
