    So what's the unwritten rule about measuring your muscle groups? should it be done flexed or relaxed? post-workout or pre-workout?

    I've recently made some lofty goals and realized that they were too vague. trying to get more specific (goals have to be measurable right?). so I don't really know if it's a realistic thing to say, "I want to add 2 inches on my chest" or whatever.

    so i'm trying to find the right way to measure stuff (biceps, chest, etc...), but want to make sure i'm doing it right. thoughts? does this shit even matter? lol

    Measure on top from the groin to the tip "flexed". If you measure from the bottom, it'll come out to, like, 12 inches.... icon_lol.gif

    It should be preworkout when your muscles are relaxed and your circulatory system is not taxed to truly measure progress, since post-workout your muscles thereafter are recovering from the strain of muscle training.

    Currently, with my trainer, we do measurements of the: Neck, Shoulders, Chest, Waist, Hips, Legs, Calves, Arms, Weight and % of Body Fat every month to see the results.
