Sticky Thread Sticky: Body Fat % - What is it, and how to measure it!

In the industry we are in, and with such a focus on 'being lean', it is no surprise that everyone is curious as to what their BF is. However - in the female community on a whole, there is a gross distortion of what a persons BF usually is! So - on the request of a few members, I have put together...

Postpartum back issues

I've never, ever had back funkiness, but since about 6 mo. into my pregnancy, my lower back is just off.
