I wrote about the results of my first three months at Core Performance in February. I’ve now got the results from the second three months (i.e. a total of six months!) and I’m still making progress, which is gratifying to see:
12/3/2010 2/22/2011 6/5/2011 Delta
Weight (lb): 168.4 164.2 164.2 0 lb
Body Fat %: 22.91 17.66 15.56 -2.1%
Lean Mass (lb): 129.82 135.20 138.65 +3.45 lb
Fat Mass (lb): 38.58 29.00 25.55 -3.45 lb
Waist (in): 37.5 37.25 36.25 -1.0 in
Hip (in): 41.5 39.75 39.25 -0.5 in
Note that the delta is since the last measurement, not over all time.
Even though my weight didn’t change, I exchanged 3.45 pounds of fat mass for lean muscle — which is why it’s never sufficient to just weigh yourself to gauge progress!
Admittedly I’ve slacked off a bit recently from working out as often as I should — due to a number of things (boredom and schedule conflicts primarily) so I’m hoping I can keep myself motivated as the summer kicks off…
