BMI gets a bad wrap, but like everything in health, CONTEXT is rarely discussed before the answer is given
I hear so many people say, PTs included that:
"BMI is a waste of time so I don't take any notice"
Listen BMI is a pretty good measure of health for most of the population
If you haven't noticed, most of the population aren't athletes, or in good health particularly in the UK or Ireland
If you are not an ATHLETE, 7 foot 2 or have optimal body fat % (men 14 - 17%, women 21 - 24%)
Then BMI is a stat you should be taking seriously
Again, critical thinking beats not thinking.
