When you commit to a regular strength training program and fix your diet? Well, as my client, Chuck, found out- a lot! Check out his very impressive numbers:
April 18, 2009- 222 pounds, 33% body fat
June 19, 2009- 202 pounds, 25.5% body fat
When you do the math, that comes out to be a 21 pound fat loss and a one pound gain in muscle mass. Most people's weight loss is usually up to 25% lean, muscle mass.
Chuck commented that the scale did not change in the last three weeks. However, his body fat did continue to decrease by about 3% during that time. Just goes to support the idea of throwing out the scale altogether!
