Muscle tone is often important to martial artists especially when conditioning for a competition. Your Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of fat based on both your height and weight.

BMI Ranges
Underweight = <18.5
Normal weight = 18.5-24.9
Overweight = 25-29.9
Obesity = BMI of 30

The following tool will calculate your Body Mass Index. For more information regarding BMI see the information page offered by the NHS.

The Ideal Weight for the Martial Artist.
One of your performance metrics might be to hit your ideal weight. There are many ways to measure your ideal weight. Dr PP Broca introduced the \”Broca formula\” in 1871. This formula influenced the \”Met Tables\” in 1943 which were used until 1970. BJ Devine\’s formula was introduced in 1974 and is used on many web pages today! In 1983 Dr JD Robinson introduced the \”Robinson formula\”. The popular Devine formula is not without its problems. While it works very well for men it suggests a far too lean weight for women generally, the problems are particularly inherent with shorter women. It is for this reason Pad-Up! have employed the Devine formula for Men and the Robinson formula for Women. The following tool will suggest your ideal body weight.
