Hope you guys can help me out with one of my client. He is 22 years old, 5’10”, 276 LBS. We have been training together since January and he has lost over 10″, BUT HAS NOT DROPPED ONE POUND! He is the exact same weight as when we started.
I have NOT done body fat on him because one of my fellow trainers told me that when a person is that heavy you should only measure them because 1. The pinches are all going to be “60” 2. It is really hard for their self esteem.
So, is this true? Also, could my client be replacing all that fat with muscle???
What about if based on your BMI you are a little over weight so you diet and lose inches, but the number in the scale does not move, and you go back to your doctor get weighed and the number is the same and based on your BMI you are still over weight but you have clearly lost inches and fat! That’s why I hate the BMI.
