    Skip's DEXA Scan

    Below is my DEXA scan from last month at the 8 week mark on my cut.

    DEXA is the acronym for Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry. This is a precision analysis of body composition. As you can see in the report my analysis breaks down every component of my body weight.

    On the first page you see the basics of my body composition:
    Body Fat
    Total Mass
    Fat Tissue
    Lean Tissue
    Bone Mass

    Further into the analysis is broken down into sub groups and averages:
    Resting Metabolic Rate
    Relative Skeletal Muscle Index
    Fat Distribution
    Visceral Fat Content
    Muscle Balance
    Bone Density

    If you look at the top of the report you will see my weight of 196.1 pounds, that is from the DEXA analysis of my body scan by composition of my body, not from a scale.

    I weighed myself at home before I drove to DEXA scan facility and my scale had me at 196.0 pounds.

    Incredibly accurate.


    BONE DENSITY
    If you notice my Z-score is 1.1 which is impressive as I am rated 0.1 higher than the average of a 30 year old and his bone density.

    BUT, this type of DEXA Scan is not specific for bone density T-score, this is generic overall Z-Score test for overall density. I previously had a DEXA Scan for specific areas that target density in my hips, femurs and lower spine for T-score results and I had a couple spots that came back at 0.9 on the T-score, so if you are concerned with osteoporosis or osteopenia you need to get the DEXA T-score scan that is specific for osteoporosis analysis.


    OTHER BODY FAT MEASURING METHODS
    Calipers are okay but according to the guys in the know they are on average 3-5% higher then actual body fat.

    Bod Pod is okay but suffers from some of the same issues as calipers as body fat is actually higher than actual.

    It is worth noting there are many 'FDA devices' that state they are 'FDA cleared'

    That is just saying the FDA does not regulate them, not that they have gone through any three phase trials or FDA approval process.

    As an example some of these fake 'FDA cleared' incredibly inaccurate devices are InBody and Tanita. I have seen side by side comparison of InBody with DEXA and Inbody has been lower body fat over the DEXA Scan by a whopping 10%. Same can be said about the Tanita device.

    In my opinion it truly is a crime to manufacture and sell something that is total bullshit like these devices.

    Anyways, while I have read up on the subject I am not an expert in this sphere so if anyone has anything to offer like their experience, call bullshit, want to add some broscience, agree or disagree feel free to chime in.

    $95 for my initial scan and $70 for each scan after, each operator is different but you should not pay much more than that.

    Nah man my winky is all muscle.

    It's my ball sacks without a doubt

    Hey Skip, I thought you'd just post this in my thread so we could get some others going?

    I'll be happy when my BF numbers are much lower but I'm cool with it for now. Now that I've read yours I can compare to the Español version.

    Thanks for posting the results of your scan. You say this is 8 weeks in on cut where do you think you started bf%?

    Looks like pricing for these scans is similar in my area after checking.

    I was an estimated 22-24% body fat at the start which was an estimate by me and coach I was using.

    I can do that.

    That is 12% bodyfat in my avi.

    I am in between travel locations but let me see what I can do tomorrow.

    Guys would be shocked at what 8% body fat really looks like when using DEXA scan.

    8% body fat on a DEXA scan is ridiculously peeled.

    Dam youve dropped roughly 10% bodyfat thats quite stellar. What does your cycle consist of? Mainly diet change and added cardio? Very nice results

    Before picture on January 7th and after picture March 7th, so basically 8 weeks.

    After picture was the morning I got the DEXA scan.

    Current stats are:
    Age: 60
    Height: 6-2
    Weight: 196.0

    These are relaxed pose so cut me some slack

    I came back from a shoulder injury in the fall of last year and took a lot of time off from the gym until mid-December when I cranked it back up again.

    I have severe damage to both, especially to my right shoulder. No cartilage, the top of my humerus is worn flat and angular on the sides with bone spurs to boot. I eventually need reconstruction surgery but I am putting it off for now.

    Diet is Keto. I swore I would never use Keto as I always viewed only useful or needed for fat asses or people with a metabolism of a tortoise

    One thing is I am very flat on this type of meal plan. Seemed like other cuts I did with carbs I was not as flat.

    I ran 500mg of TIPP with 300mg of Mast-P for nearly 8 weeks. I will say the Mast-P really shined on this cut over others I have run and think I am going to use more often in the future.

    I am still on a cut but temporarily on hold as I have been and continue to travel this month. My goal is to get to 8% body fat next month then start a bulk.

    My end goal is to be 210-215 pounds and <10% body fat.
