    Are bodytrax scanning machines reliable ?

    I’ve started lifting again and I’m trying to use this machine to track my progress. Should I pay attention to the fat % and muscle % that this machine gives me ?

    NO Nothing but expensive gimmicks.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Nope

    No BIA machine is accurate, it's a fundamentally flawed way of measuring bodyfat and will cause you problems if you try to use it. We see posts on here regularly by people getting confused by the results they throw up.
