    Chest measurement

    When measuring the Chest, which is the correct spot to put the measuring tape over? Do we put the tape directly over the nipples, or slightly above it?

    You're suppose to flex! Though its really hard to flex and take an accurate measurement on your chest by yourself. I usually have gyno help me on my measurments.

    This is how you do it:

    Chest: over the nipples, dont flex lats. Take a normal breath in and one out. Use average.

    I read somewhere the only part you flex while measuring is the upper arm.
