Track Measurements for an Aesthetic Physique

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeBOU0Yi60o

In this post, I want to highlight the importance of tracking your body measurements.

When I used to do online coaching, a common issue I would run into with my clients while they were on their cut was that their weight wouldn’t change for a period of 1-3 weeks.

Now, this isn’t the end of the world.

Weight is only one piece of the puzzle, and the number on the scale does not define you!

 

If you’re making strength gains in the gym, increasing the size of your body parts like your chest and arms, and decreasing your waist size, then the number on the scale doesn’t even matter. You’re building muscle and losing fat – this is best case scenario!

Do You Really Need To Track?

Tracking your body measurements allows you to reflect upon previous data so that you can see yourself progressing. It is nearly impossible to notice gains overnight. In fact, we don’t strive to go from zero to hero in 1 day. That’s unrealistic.

Focus on being a little better each day, whether that’s an increase in weight or reps, and overtime you’ll be blown away by how far you’ve come. And even if you begin noticing some stall in progress, the log of all your previous measurements prepares you to make tweaks and adjustments to find what ultimately works best for you.

These Are The Best Tips For Tracking Body Measurements

Go to your local craft or dollar store and buy a cheap tape measure. Then, you will want to begin take measurements of the following body parts:

  • Arm (Flexed)
  • Waist (Relaxed, right around belly button)
  • Chest (Mid-level)

Do this once or twice a week upon waking. After a few weeks, look back and check out the progress you’ve made.

In my Aggressive Fat Loss program, guys are dropping on average 0.5 inches off their waist each week! If you’re interested in getting the same results, I strongly suggest you check out the program here.

This Is The Power Of Tracking Your Body Measurements

Tracking body measurements is an outstanding tool you can use in your arsenal throughout your transformation. Being able to see progress is very motivating, and will always give you that extra kick when times are tough.

As well, it gives you the knowledge to tailor your program so that you’re always making gains.
