Keep in mind that the BMI calculation is used to screen the general population for health risks related to having too much body fat. This is a tool that works well for most persons who are curious about their health and want to stay in proper shape and experience inner health.
The fact of the matter is that fitness goes well beyond just large muscles. Instead, workability of the muscles and stamina, along with flexibility and oxygen flow rate is what matters. When your cells work they produce wastes that need to be transported away. How efficiently your body does these tasks is a measure of your cardio-respiratory endurance. Aerobics needs a special mention here.
The word aerobic means using oxygen, so aerobic exercise is literally an exercise that uses oxygen. This is the type of exercise that we might consider with activities performed over time at low to moderate intensity, such as taking a comfortable jog around the neighborhood, riding your bicycle or rowing a boat. Aerobic exercise is important because it strengthens your heart and lungs by making them work harder. Did you ever hear that really fit athletes have very low resting heart rates? That's because a high level of fitness leads to a strong heart, which is able to pump a lot of blood with fewer heartbeats.
BMI - the Body Mass Index is a very important point that helps you know about the level of fitness and shape that your body is in. First, you need to understand the difference between mass and weight. Mass is the volumetric measurement of the matter contained in a body and weight is actually the quantum of force at which the gravitational pull of Earth acts on a body. BMI is a ratio of the mass of your body and calculates the fitness levels based on a clear distinction and cross-check of height to weight measurements. So, alternately speaking, BMI is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women.
BMI is a fairly reliable indicator of body fatness for most people. Additionally, BMI is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening for weight categories that may lead to health problems.
