Despite all the modern technological advancements in the tracking of body composition, I’m still a “mirror, scale, waist measurement guy.”
Interestingly, these three indicators, checkpoints, are not always congruent.
Take this morning, for instance, with my goal of obtaining single digit body fat, and increased strength on what I call Apex movements, I was pleased to see visual improvement, in the form of striations, “cuts,” and an overall leanness, particularly in the midsection, with a look in the mirror.
The scale was about where I estimated all things considered, but my waist measurement was actually a tick above previous readings, and what I expected it to be.
I guess the moral of the story is to take these readings as temporary glimpses of the overall big picture on your journey towards your goals.
Think trends, not snapshots, especially when it comes to stat-based indicators like the scale or body measurements.
