The body composition analyzer really understands the various indexes of the body:
Many people will have the same confusion, inadvertently wondering whether there is a problem with their own body or whether they have a physique that is prone to obesity.
Body composition analyzers want to know the real reason and must know the various indexes of the body: weight, body water content, body fat, lean body weight, skeletal muscle, BMI, body fat percentage, waist-to-hip fat ratio, segmental muscle balance , Visceral fat, basal metabolism… What the hell are everything except weight?
How to measure it?
Here is a grand introduction to everyone!
(Body composition analyzer)
Its measurement items include body weight, body water content, body fat, lean body mass, skeletal muscle, BMI, body fat percentage, waist-to-hip fat ratio, segmental muscle balance, visceral fat, etc. Let’s take a look!
In fact, for our little friends who come to exercise normally, in addition to height and weight, an inbody body test table, the more important indicators are the following:
BMI (Body Mass Index)
BMI = weight (kg) divided by the square of height (m). It roughly reflects the degree of a person’s [fat and thin].
According to Chinese standards, non-professional athletes have a normal BMI between 18 and 24. If it is less than 18, it is weight loss; if it is greater than 24, it is overweight. (This index will be available as soon as it is tested on inbody)
Body fat rate
It is the ratio of fat to total body weight.
Generally speaking, 14-24% of men and 21-30% of women are healthy. Many indicators in “body measurement analysis”, such as “fat-free body weight”, “total water”, etc., actually reflect the level of body fat percentage from the side, and the water content can also determine whether you have the possibility of edema.
The higher the muscle content, the stronger the body’s metabolism, and the stronger the exercise capacity. It is closely related to the basal metabolic rate to be mentioned later, and it can be roughly understood that the higher the muscle content, the higher the basal metabolic rate, because The calories consumed to maintain muscles are still very high.
Waist-to-hip ratio is the ratio of waist circumference to hip circumference, which reflects the degree of accumulation of fat in the abdomen, and is closely related to visceral fat. The higher the waist-to-hip ratio, the higher the visceral fat level.
If you are very light but have a relatively high waist-to-hip ratio, you need to be vigilant-the accumulation of abdominal fat is more likely to cause cardiovascular disease. For a healthy waist-to-hip ratio, men need to be less than 0.9, while women need to be less than 0.8.
The basal metabolism is in kilocalories (kcal), which refers to the calories that a person consumes every day in a awake and extremely quiet state (not eating, drinking, not moving, or thinking), which is equivalent to the minimum calories needed to maintain life .
If you are losing weight, this is a very important indicator, it can help you calculate the daily calories of food. Generally speaking, the greater the weight, the stronger the metabolism, and the higher the muscle content, the higher the basal metabolism value. (This is the reason why some people can’t get fat no matter how they eat.) Only by understanding the current state of their body can they make a more effective exercise plan!
Body fat tester recommends to test every three months, because 90-180 days is the renewal cycle of fat cells, and three months, the basic body cells are renewed, and each test is a new self , I feel pretty good!
