Default Best Circumference Measurements

What are the best circumference measurements to be taken to keep track on how big are you getting on a bulking and how fat are you getting? Which ones are worth to be taken?

I just do waist at belly button and a couple inches below because my lower back is the first to start gaining fat. Then just arm and calf and thigh.

But if I'm getting stronger, waist is maintaining and weight isn't going up too fast. Don't sweat if the rest are growing as quick as I would like.

Do you measure the calves flexed?
How to know if you are measuring in the same part of the thigs/ calves every time you do it?
Do you flex your biceps pulling your forearms as near as possible to your biceps , or mantain a 90 degree angle between forearms and biceps?

For a male I do measure:
- arms
- 2 fingers above the belly button
- around the belly button
- 2 fingers below the belly button
- thighs

I always flex both arms and thighs; all that matters is to be consistent each time you do it.

These little details like this are why I don't stress if my measurements don't seem to be changing, but everything else is going in the right direction.
