We have already discussed the importance of measuring your progress and today I am going to show you a couple of great tools for measuring that progress. As we have discussed, you should be tracking circumference measurements as well as body fat measurements. I have just the tools for you to do that.
Body Fat Calipers
One of the ways we can measure our own body fat is via calipers. I recommend Accumeasure calipers. They can be used in one single spot on your body and will give you an accurate view of what direction your body fat is going. Remember, it isn't important for the measurement to be 100% accurate. What matters is that you measure consistently the same way. This way if your percentage is dropping you know you are heading in the right direction.
MyoTape for Circumference Measurements
It can be very difficult to do circumference measurements without help from someone else. Enter the MyoTape tape measure. It is designed so that you can wrap it around a body part, latch it to itself and then hit a button to lock it tighter and then read the measurement. It is an essential tool for you to check your progress.
Photos are the best way to track your overall progress. Photos tell the story. I try to take pictures weekly. I don't stress if I miss a week. The idea is to have documented evidence of your transformation. It also serves to motivate you.
Get the Tools!
It just so happens that the tools I am recommending are available from Amazon.com as a package deal. They are available for $9.98 total for both the Accumeasure calipers and the MyoTape tape measure.
