As many of you know I am not one for mirrors and checking our selves out. I am for actionable data. Such as did my Deadlift go up 5 lbs this month how about my clean or my front squat. If so then my fitness is increasing! Studies have shown that those with type 2 diabetes, which used to be called adult onset diabetes but we are now seeing in children but that is a different discussion, who workout regularly compared to their inactive counterparts outlive their counterparts and live much more free lives. Another point is the body mass index, BMI, it has been found that I am considered overweight my height and weight do not match up approptiately on it, Richard. I don't think I am overweight though? So how does it all work. BMI is just a calculation of 703x weight in lbs/Height squared in inches. So how could this be the best indicator of overall health?! It can't be but it can be a good road map. So if you fall in the over weight road like myself. Measure your waist and hips if they are negative you are healthy if they are positive we got some work to do, Their are some good tests that are better for us. Like the water dunk which actually gives a body fat percentage. But in the end who cares? If we are going to the box and putting in work and seeing increased numbers in our lifts and our double unders while our row times and run times go down then we are doing it right and always moving towards our road of increased health!
