Another Tool in your ToolBox!
Another tool in your toolbox: BMI
Don't delay, calculate it today!
Do you know your BMI? Your Body Mass Index is a number that helps determine if you are at risk for weight-related diseases. While it is not a perfect measure, it is a helpful tool. BMI values from 18.5 to 24.9 are considered healthy. BMI values from 25-29.9 are considered overweight, and BMI values of 30 or greater are considered obese.
Calculate your BMI: 1) Multiply your weight in pounds by 703. 2) Divide by your height in inches. 3) Divide by your height in inches again.
example: 175 pounds x 703 = 123025
Height 5’8” or 68 inches
123025 divided by 68” = 1809.19
1809.19 divided by 68” = 26.60 - BMI = Overweight
While this measurement is effective with the majority of the population, it is problematic with ‘muscled’ individuals. Due to the fact that it is based on height and weight, the limitation occurs when a person has some reason that they are either lighter than expected or heavier than expected (Heavily muscular).
BMI is a great tool, but just like scale weight, Body Fat measurement, etc. it is just a tool and needs to be used in conjunction with other techniques to give a broad perspective of your health and fitness.
