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?
How far around do you go? Under the armpits?

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.
Which is it ladies?
you flex whenever you take measurements. Why wouldn't you?
This is how you do it:
Chest: over the nipples, dont flex lats. Take a normal breath in and one out. Use average.
how 'bout arms, do you flex for those?
I read somewhere the only part you flex while measuring is the upper arm.
Wait so chest is measured along the nipples, lats and chest unflexed? Wow I was very confused. I always thought that chest and lats were both flexed hard..
