    I can swing a handheld by 5-10% in one day by increasing sodium and water intake. It measure the impedance (speed the electricity travels through your body) Increasing your state of hydration and electrolytes will totally fool the that hand held by increasing the speed the electricty travels through your body. The faster it travels the lower it thinks your bodyfat is since muscle is 80% water it assumes your LBM is much higher. If you are lean and dehydrated it will read a much higher bodyfat level due to slower electric conduction, and on the flip side if you are a little soft but well hydrated it can read much lower than you are. It is probably as useless of a device as the old school BMI charts since it relies on such an easily modified method of measurement.

    You would probably be better off just taking progress pics, and or getting some calipers just to make sure the pinch measurements are moving down. The actual formula is not needed so long as you see the pinch measurement getting lower your bodyfat is too.

    You look like you are kicking some ass and should be happy with your progress.

    Yeah. I got a bunch of handhelds this year for class. So I just use it for convenience. Have some calipers as well. Need to take ten home though.

    I think the years of bad choices are all collected there.

    Measure with calipers today. All sights were under 10 but the belly. It was over 25. Average was 13.5.

    The work has shown the most in my live handles. They are now second leanest area.

    Agree here. 13.5 is athlete level. Can't complain about that too much. Way better than average.

    Not looking skinny, looking more and more fit. Making good progress boss. You're on the right path.

    Deadlift

    Nothing but deadlifts. I had no imagination today.

    2x8,135
    2x8, 185
    2x8, 225.
    2x8, 275
    2x6,315
    1x3, 365 (had no drive at this point)
    1x10, 275, 1x15,275

    All sets up to 275 were snatch grip.

    Nothing fancy but brutal.

    Looking good Caleb, making progress for certain. The weather up here was indeed chaotic, we had 3 trees / very large limbs down on our street alone.

    I haven't felt this fatigued in a while. Between my deadlift session and building a garden shed I'm wiped out. Every part of my body is done. I think I'm going to take a walk tonight and get back to it tomorrow.

    Side note. On Sunday I finished my last Epibolin dose. I had lowered my dose to two pills per day. I'm still on 2 Ed of 550 and epi-v. I haven't had any sides to report. Biggest upside has been the increase in volume I have been able to do. My strength is good but I haven't pushed it because I've been concentrating on increasing volume. My work capacity has been very positive.

    Another side note. My weight has continue to climb while on my "cut". I started at approximately 220 and now I'm at 230. So far a 10 lb. increase while trying to cut fat. Can you say easy gainer? My total calorie intake has been at or below 2500 the past month. The Epibolin and increased volume must be working.

    That's nuggin Futs I can do similar things at the beginning of a cut when on anabolics but 10 lbs I don't think.
