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.
around the navel too. Some of these jokers in the military want to measure your effin hips and call it a waist measurement which kills me especially with my endo hips
i just do an honest min relaxed as normal.
