    Lightbulb How body age is determined?

    Actually, I am 28 years old but the body age says 19. Is there any formula to calculate body age?


    I am using Mi Body Composition Scale.

    I have attached the report.

    Sounds like an ego massaging number that isn't useful for anything.

    I imagine it is based on your body composition, the idea being that males have their best composition numbers at an age of around 18-25 yo... or at least the numbers that are measured by the scale - which can way off because they were probably measured by BIA.

    Honestly OP, keep things simple. Weight yourself. Take measurements if you want. Keep track of your performance in main compound lifts and make sure it rises over time. Making it any more complicated than that will add nothing to results.

    If I were going to give a body an age I'd look at condition of joints first, but I don't think any general "body age" number is accurate or useful anyway.

    I have the same app. Body age in that app is based solely on your basal metabolic rate. It means if you did nothing all day you would burn calories at the rate of a 19 year old that is the same height and weight as you rather than 28 year old. Given that BMR slows down as we age that is a good thing.

    I give drug screens to refinery contractors for my official job. They are welders, fitters, boilermakers, electricians etc. They have a pretty tough life, and they drink, smoke and don't take care of their health. I'm 52, and I see these guys that have a tough life and I swear they are older looking than me. I have to put down their birthday on the drug screen form. These older looking guys are 5-10 years younger than me.

    On the flip side, every now then I see someone and I'll guess them to be in their late 50's or early 60's. My guess was 10 years too young. I ask them how they do it. They'll say something like "The last cigarette I had was in 1982, the last beer was 1983"

    No need for a gym. You can get started doing full body calisthenics 3-4 times a week. Look up convict conditioning and anything by Al Kavadlo.

    Or his brother Danny Kavadlo... I prefer Danny to Al because in the photos of Al doing insanely hard stuff he's always smiling and that's just too much and gets annoying, can't he look like he's struggling just once?
