  • Hi,
    Today I’ve weighed myself at the gym. This scales has two handles you hold while weighing myself.

    Weight 83.0Kg
    BMI 23.7Kg (your ideal BMI is 18.5 to 25.0)
    BODY FAT: 14.1% (ideal body fat 20.2 to 29.2%)
    BODY FAT MASS: 11.7Kg (Ideal is 16.7Kg to 24.2Kg)
    I’m male.

    I’m aiming to reach 79Kg as I still have some flab in my waist.

    Are these machines reliable for body fat measurement?

    I’ve always been lean-built (on the skinny side) although I gained some muscle in my youth with weight training.

    Any help much appreciated

    Antonio,

    If you google body fat measurement/ hand held/ gym/ accuracy etc, you’ll find a huge number of articles discussing this.

    The quick answer seems to be that the hand held device at your gym will only be measuring your upper body composition. And no, its not reliable!

    Thanks for that. I’ve read a some articles and the information is somewhat contradictory but mostly agree that this is quite unreliable.

    Mr Mosley uses what seems to be a reliable scales with BMI meter. He holds a handle with both hands while his feet stand on a metal plate, so this seems to measure the impedance between his hands and his feet, with would measure the whole body composition? (or most of it).

    I wonder if that one is good.

    I just checked a weight/height chart. 129-130 is on the high side of normal for your height.If you’re fine-boned, you’ll look a little chubby, compared to someone with a medium build, or larger bones. If you’re fine-boned, you should be at the lower end of your range (105 -115 or so). If you work out, and build lean muscle mass, and lose some weight at the same time, you’ll see yourself get toned, and because muscle weighs more than fat, you won’t have to meet a seemingly impossible goal (105-110). You should look great at a weight in the middle of the range for your height.

    Using BMI as an index can be very deceptive, btw. I would ignore that, since your BMI is said to be normal. Your BMI isn’t telling you if you have sufficient lean muscle mass, for example.

    I’m now on 77.5 Kg and aiming to 75 Kg.
    Great answer, your weights seem wrong though, 110 is 49.89 Kg.
    Thank you.
