It’s important for your health to know your weight, but especially where body fat is. To have fat in and around your abdomen, is detrimental to your health. A good way tot determine the amount of fat around your belly area is to measure your waist circumference. Measure the narrowest section of your waist or measure your waist between your lowest rib and the top of your hipbones. For correct measurement you need to exhale and then measure your waist circumference.
If your waist circumference is higher than 102 cm / 45” for men or higher than 88 cm/ 35” for women, you will have an increased risk for Type 2 Diabetes and Cardiovascular disease.
It is important to realize that having fat around your abdominal area, is worse for your health than having fat around your hips and buttocks.
When you do bodybuilding, you will probably have many muscles en low body fat. Your BMI can go up to 25-30 and you will probably have a good waist circumference. A body fat measurement is a better measurement for you.
