    Hi guys can you tell me when doing measurements where do measure for your waist?? do you measure right around the belly button, right below, above the hips? Thanks everyone.

    Well it depends on if you're a male or female and also where you hold the weight...


    Usually across the belly button area as this is the widest point for most. Hips and such are usually added to the measurements for females.

    Doesn't really matter to be honest, if your just measuring to keep track of progress just make sure you measure the same spot each time.

    The real measurements is taken right below the torax cage and up from the waist bone. Which is usually higher than the belly button. I personnally measure it where my pants are tied. below the belly button. It's up to you.
