I will be updating this section weekly so you can track my progression of my health-related goals. To start off, here are my current measurements:
Height: 6’1″ Weight: 177 lbs. BMI: 23.2 Body Fat: 10.5%
To track these measurements, I have been using the Omron Body Fat Loss Monitor. Thankfully at the LA Fitness I work out at, the personal trainers have them at their desk and let me use it for free so make sure to ask your gym if they have them to use. They aren’t the most accurate, but something is better than nothing in my experience.
All of these charts are taken from my diary at MyFitnessPal
This article from NerdFitness does a good job showing pictures of body types with different types of body fat percentages to help you set your own goals.
To check your Body Mass Index (BMI), I use the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website’s calculator.CDC Adult BMI Calculator
These two measurements are easy and free so that is why I am encouraging you to start here. With everything, there are many other things you can track such as cholesterol, blood pressure and fasting blood glucose, but those will need to be done by professionals.
