The Best Methods for Measuring Progress

How to Track Progress Efficiently: You don’t need to track progress daily or weekly, changes wouldn’t be drastic enough. Track progress every 2-4 weeks.

Stop Weighing Yourself Daily. The daily fluctuations will mess with your motivation. Weigh yourself once every 2 weeks, but rely more on how things feel, or girth measurements.

Track Body Fat. Get a personal trainer to take skinfold measurements and track your body fat every 2 weeks.

Take Measurements. Girth measurements of your neck, chest, arms, waist & thighs. Remember ladies the chest shrinks first so don’t get a heart attack if your bust size goes down.

Shoot Pictures. Full body pictures from ankle to neck, front/back/side, every 2 weeks. Compare with your previous pics.

Strength Stats. Log your workouts. Strength going up means muscle gains and strength training prevents muscle breakdown.

Take a compliment Listen to what friends, family and colleagues might say. They’ll notice your body change more than you will. Clothes will start to feel differently too.

Why focusing on fat is a GOOD idea!

To be within the healthy range your body fat percentage should be between;

25-30% for a female

18-25% for a male
