So here they are with a comparison to previous body comps in May of 2008 and January of 2008:
|Body Fat %||7.8||8.7||8.9|
|Fat Weight (lb)||12.56||13.83||14.24|
|Lean Weight (lb)||148.44||145.17||145.76|
So what’s the trend …
Weight is up a little BUT, Fat Weight is down and Lean Weight is up which means I’ve replaced fat with muscle hence the dropping Body Fat %.
A few posts ago I estimated my body fat at 8% so I guess I know my body pretty well.
What’s the goal?
I’m not concerned with weight. Instead I’m concerned with my weight to power ratio. Does anyone know how to quantify this? In my mind if my lean weight is up and my body fat is down then I should have a better weight to power ratio. This could be a misconception??
I would like my Body Fat % to be around 5% or 6% in June and November.
How can I get there?
Well, if I look at the locations where the body fat readings were taken I can see where this fat is …
- legs < 5%
- chest < 5%
- triceps <5%
- tummy 12%
- back 12%
So it appears that all my excess fat is in my tummy and back. I can target the back through strength work which I will add to my 3 day core/stability/abs strength program. For the tummy I will have to target this through diet. Yep, I must take in less calories than I expend to get rid of this little bit of fat. Can’t get around it …
