Question Accuracy of body fat scales/machines at the gym?

Hey everyone. I’m a woman who looks lean in person, and has no bulges, love handles, etc. I’ve had my fat tested as a nutrition shop with a scanner, and I’ve come up at 22%. I’m fine with that. I’ve also had it done at the gym on a scale which checks body fat, and wow! It said I was 28.8%. That...

Spinal Epidural & weight gain

I'm going for a spinal epidural Thursday for a small herniation in my back that really bothers my neck (steroid injection basically) I've been looking up side effects and see that weight gain is one of them, but didn't think that one steroid injection could cause this! Has anyone had experience...

Talking Fresh meat! Newbie here ~

Hi all, So this is my second time around at making a serious effort at a transformation. I have generally been quite active and love being in the gym. However, my downfall has always been what i put in my gob (crisps are the snack food of the devil, and cheese, I eat A LOT of cheese....). ...

Smile OFFICIAL Cutting Support Thread (Oh noez, not the evil C word!) (no emo)

Hurrow everyone. Thought I would start one of these. We have a bulking thread, and I figure that after all the winter months, there are most likely others (like me) working on cutting down some. So I guess I thought it'd be cool if we posted our progress here. :) Pics are always a bonus as well!...

Short of the DEXA scan, what are some ways to figure out muscular imbalances?

I’ve been told that these scans give you accurate information on where you have muscle weaknesses. I like the way I look, but sometimes I’m unsure as to whether or not something should be stronger (back, trunk, etc). I know this test gives you results which pinpoint fat and muscle. EDIT: I guess...

Question Bulking if you're fat?

Hi all :) I've been doing some research on bulking and cutting, and the common theme is that in order to gain muscle you need to eat a calorie surplus/gain weight. But my question is, what if you're already overweight? I am overweight...so I don't want to gain more. I'm basically just...

scale/measurements not budging

Hi guys, I originally had a thread on here that seems to be gone. It was regarding "body fat percentage". 3 months ago I had a DEXA scan and was at 34% bf. I am female, 37, currently 121 lbs (started at 127lbs) and 5'4''. I decided to do a 10lb cut by lifting regularly and consuming 1250 cals...
