Measurement Fundamentals

High-end athletes are constantly measured - it's largely how we determine if a player is a star or not - at least most of the time.

Just remember, there are right ways and wrong ways to everything.  Technology can be a huge help - especially with measurements and athlete tracking. When I say tracking - I mean taking regular measurements over time to ensure that training and the daily work of the athlete isn't hurting the them.
