Buster Benson I need more goals.
I asked about getting as many metrics and numbers to chart my progress as possible. So they sent me to the chiropractor downstairs for a free body assessment this morning. They measured inflammation of the spine, muscular imbalance, and made pretty drawings.
The doctor also measured my neck, biceps, thighs, chest and stomach circumferences. Now I have numbers that I can check every couple months to see if this exercise really is having any good impact.
I’m a pretty wimpy dude. I always have been. So, feel free to laugh at my numbers. I gotta start somewhere though, and I know everyone’s got various things that they’re insecure about. I just happen to post mine on the internet.
- Neck: 35.5 cm
- Chest: 91.5 cm
- Waist: 80 cm
- Right Thigh: 50 cm
- Left Thigh: 45 cm
- Right Calf: 38 cm
- Right Bicep: 28.5 cm relaxed, 30.5 cm flexed
- Left Bicep: 25 cm
I weigh about 157 and have about 11% body fat according to my fancy scale at home. I don’t know what my blood pressure is at the moment, but I have results from a couple months ago that I might post here too.
Basically, I want to gain about 10-15 pounds of healthy weight. I want to stop being underweight and out of shape. The weights I’m at are sort of unstable right now since they’re still trying to figure out where I’m at. I think I’m currently doing 160 on the leg press, 100 on the pull-down, 95 on the weird back machine, and 175 on the one where I pull forward. I could be way off though. I’ll keep better track once they figure out the real weights I should be at.
