Fitness Measurement Update – July 30
My training has also changed. I am now going to a new gym which is very strength and conditioning focused. Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I do work with a class where everyday is different, but we primarily do things like battle ropes, TRX moves, tire flips, and other metabolic strength work. On the other days I lift for strength and growth with lifts like squats, pull-ups (chins and wide grip), deadlifts, glute ham ham raises, etc. It seems to be a good balance and as you will see below it is working.
Here are the BodPod measurements:
May 3, 2011 (lb)
Body Mass : 160
Fat Mass: 38
Fat Free Mass: 122
BF %: 23.8%
July 30, 2011 (lb)
Body Mass : 159.7
Fat Mass: 28.8
Fat Free Mass: 130.9
BF %: 18%
As you can see, I have gained 8 pounds of muscle and dropped around 4% body fat, all while staying at the same weight. To me that is what I am looking to do.
My goal is still to get to 10% bodyfat which means I need to get my body weight down to around 145 pounds and put on some more mass. I hope to hit this goal on October 31, 2011. Stay tuned and we will see….
