"Fighting trim".  That's how boxing trainers describe whether a
man is ready to step into the ring.  It means broad, strong
shoulders and a compact, rock-hard waist.

But what is the ideal waist size for a man?  What is fighting trim,
these days? As you might expect, recommendations vary.

Under the guidelines of the International Diabetes Federation, a
normal waist measurement for a man is 38 inches or less.

Many doctors are even more stringent,
recommending a target
of  35 inches for a man.

Your height matters of course.  A man who is 6 feet tall will
have a larger waist than a man is 5 feet 4, even though both
may look fit.

Take Tiger Woods for example. Tiger is 6'2".  His waist size is
28 inches. This is why he looks superfit.  

Shaq -Shaquille O'Neal --is 7'1". His waist size when he was
younger and played for the Orlando Magic was 50 inches.   So,
take into account your height when you set your target waist
size.

How to Measure Your Waist

To measure your waist line, stand in front of a mirror with your
feet apart.  Take a tape measurement of your waist just about
an inch above your belly button.


Waist to Height Chart--How Do You Stack Up?

On the next page, we have put together a chart of the range of
waist line measurements that are considered healthy for men of
different heights.  The column titled Waist-to-Height Ratio is a
way to tell if you are considered overweight or at an unhealthy
waist line measurement.  There is more of this measurement
just below the chart.

How does your Waist-to-Height Ratio Compare with Others?
