Stats for Monday. Today my weight is down. Oddly, my measurements are the same except the belly button which is down. I like using this way of assessing my progress much more than just the scale. With this method I can see if I am increasing my lean body mass, which is my main goal along with decreasing my fat mass. Scale weight does not distinguish between those two measurements.
30 April 2012
Weight— 151.6 down 1.6#
Waist— 37 in. same
Thigh—22.5 in. same
Arm—13 in same
Bellybutton—38.5 down .5 inches
Fat Mass—57.76 down .6#’s
LBM— 93.84 down .99#
This is the Katch/McArdle calculator that I used this week instead of doing my own math like I did the week before. I don’t like the lbm going down??? Not sure what to make of it. In general, I think I will not rush to panic. When dealing with half inches and less the tape measure may or may not be sufficiently accurate…even though my best effort is made to reproduce the best result by always using the same measuring place. I like the scale going down. Very much looking forward to being in the 140’s. Soon.
PS…if you wish to find your body fat measurement you can use the Navy method located here
Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start. Mine began with an early morning fasted lift session. Two mile run coming up mid day for cardio.
