Tanita body test - showing me how much fat I have

About a week ago I took a Tanita body test at EVO Fitness in Moss. I've taken a few of these before, and they give you a very detailed picture of the shape you are in. It is a very easy test to take, you just stand on a machine hold some handles, and within a minute the results are ready. 

As you can see, I have 11,4% body fat (9,8 kg fat), which is within the normal range. The machine claims I have 72,6 kg muscle mass, which is above the normal range (Wohoo!!) 

The machine also gives you a visceral fat rating, and mine is just 2, which is really low. Visceral fat is the fat in you abdomen, around your organs, and is something you really want to avoid. 

What I also like about this test, is the segmental analysis of muscle mass and fat rating. It shows very detailed how you compare to the normal. My trunk is apparently more muscular than normal, and has less fat then normal. What is interesting to see though, is that most of the fat I have is on my legs. Visual inspection shows that it's on my butt! This is a typical Bjerkøe trait. :-P

A test like this can be taken at almost any gym for a small fee. It's a great way to see where you are, and to track you own progress. The bottom line is that I recommend taking a test like this, so go and do it! Do it now! 

No more excuses! Push push push!
