During your weekly check-ins, we will weigh you on the scale and take your body fat measurements using body fat calipers or an electronic body fat analyzer. As you progress in your training and get stronger, your lean mass (“muscle”) will increase and your body fat will tend to decrease. This calculation of lean mass to body fat % is called you “Body Composition”
Your body weight can fluctuate with water levels, sodium levels, lean mass/fat ratio within days. The scale is only ONE indicator and not the final authority of progress. Your overall “body composition” is the most important measurement. As you gain lean muscle, your weight may slightly increase, but your overall body composition is actually transforming!
