Time to lose my belly so I went in to Vibra-Train in Auckland who specialise in vibration training. They have a Body Composition Analysis machine with 5-10% margin of error.
I already guessed from looking at photos on the net that my body fat must be around 20% – which is exactly what the machine said.
Total body water: 59%
Muscle Mass: 75.4%
Fat mass: 20%
Weight: 100kg (empty stomach)
My waist to hip ratio is high 0.95 which is not good but I already know I need to lose belly fat.
Now one thing missing from the analysis is bone – and no way can my bone mass be 5% so I guess with this particular machine they don’t differentiate between bone & muscle mass.
I’m not too concerned as its the fat measurement I’m after.
