Grant Richard,

Do either of you have stats on your fat% now compared to a few years ago, so that you can measure numerically any muscle loss?

I had a big shock here this week. My last fitness test was in 1998 and I remember I was 81kg with a body fat of 12%

This week I hit 82kg for the first time (on the way down from 90kg) and was thinking I was in the same shape as I was in my twenties since I was training so much.

Sadly, I remembered that we had bought a fancy scales that also measures fat content and water content. I put in my stats and then get a shock, fat content 22%, or 8kg more fat than 15 years ago.

I will neglect strength training no more. I hope this statistic will change quickly with a bit of gym work and muscle memory?
