What can be measured can be improved

Recently, I was told by Andre Benoit that “strength is the mother of all qualities“. This certainly rings true in the world of body composition training. Train for strength and shape will follow. Some bodybuilding gurus still preach that if you train for shape, strength will follow; as this false gospel spreads, so do distended bellies. Strength is your base.

Strength gains come with lean muscle gain.  More lean mass allows a greater energy expenditure along with higher metabolic rate, all leading to fat loss.

We now have ourselves an Inbody 270 Body Composition analyser that is capable of measuring a number of great health markers and establishing an accurate means of measuring your training results.  Let’s be honest, the scales are useless when it comes to measuring your training results.  If we build some lean muscle mass and increase your bone density (lifting weights increase bone density which is very important for longevity) you will lose body fat while the weight on the scale might not move. This may dent our motivation although in reality your body composition can be changing dramatically and those pesky scales won’t budge.  This is where the InBody analyser can make all the difference.
