THE NUMBERS ONLY TELL ONE STORY…
Today let’s talk about the scales.
Now there is a whole debate on; don’t use them, do use them! For me I think they’re a great tool to use if your goal is to track fat loss or building muscle.
They’re great to measure if you’re going in the right direction or whether you need to change things like: – increasing/decreasing food – changing interval timings – switching intensity – alternating different classes – manipulating water or other aspects of your training.
One side of it as well I want to go over is how the scales should be just 1 factor to look at rather than the only factor. The reason for this is like I have experienced with my clients. I have had clients go up in weight or their weight hasn’t moved but inches have dropped, strength has increased, they feel better etc. This is because of muscle.
If you’re gaining muscle while dropping fat, which can be done, then this might potentially happen.
It is a reason the scales should be used but should be used with a few other factors:
? Is your strength increasing ? Are inches dropping on the tape measure ? Do you feel better and have more energy ? Are you sleeping better ? Do you clothes fit better
If you tick a few of these as well then don’t stress and continue the process to a stronger body with less fat and better health.
Found it useful, give it a share and like. But please, trust the process.
Thank you for reading.
