Body Fat Truck Reminder

 In Blog, Uncategorized

Just as a reminder, the Body Fat Truck will be here Thursday, Jan 18 between 6:30 and 12pm

Spots are still available and you can register HERE. $49 if your first time — $39 for retesters

This would be a great body comp measurement for the Whole Life Challenge considering we’re bringing back the truck March 2nd, the day before the WLC finals. (Get on team CrossFit Los Angeles for the Whole Life Challenge HERE.)

For those new to the BF truck, here’s a little more information about this method of measuring one’s body composition:

The hydrostatic method uses a two component model which separates the body in two distinct pieces: 1. Bone, muscle, and connective tissue collectively known as lean mass sinks (more dense than water). 2. Body Fat-floats (less dense than water). By obtaining your land weight and water weight (based on buoyancy) they can calculate your body fat as a percentage of your total weight.

The hydrostatic testing method has been around for over 50 years and is based on Archimedes principle which states “that when a body is submerged in water, there is a buoyant counter force equal to the weight of the water which is displaced”.

Hydrostatic weighing is a very accurate technique for measuring body composition. The technique uses tried and true variables that feature a low percentage of error. For that reason, many experts refer to hydrostatic weighing as the gold standard for measuring body composition.

Whether you’re trying to lose fat or gain muscle, the body fat truck is a simple and good tool to give you information on where you are, or if you’re going in the direction you want. More precisely you can use the information to tailor a nutrition plan to supplement your training.
