InBody Body Composition Analysis
When you weigh yourself, what do the numbers on a bathroom type scale really mean? What your number you see really means is the amount of force that gravity exerts on your body while you are standing on the scale, which is your weight expressed in pounds or kilograms.
Have you lost or gained weight? Was it fat, muscle or water that was lost or gained? If you are following a diet and or exercise plan, how do you know if it is effective?
Your body is a complex structure made of different components, such as body water, fat and muscle. Your body cannot be expressed with one simple number.
Titan Training is now offering state of the art body composition analysis though a fifteen second non-invasive full body scan. The InBody 270 is the same as stepping on a scale, while holding on the two handles. See the image at the bottom of the page. Click on the red button near the bottom of the page to schedule an appointment for your InBody Composition Analysis.
The InBody scan not only examines the composition of your body, but also reveals the weight and percentage of body fat, muscle distribution, and body water components that are key to the understanding of your body. Knowing what your body is made up of is essential in preparing a diet and or exercise plan.
The InBody scan will give you a Segmental Lean Analysis of the Lean Mass in each arm, legs and trunk. This will be expressed in weight and percentage. The percentage indicates whether or not the Lean Mass is capable of supporting the individual’s body weight. Each of these body areas can be addressed to achieve a full body balance. This is great for assessing mobility and fall risk in older or sedentary people.
Taking the InBody test once will give you a snapshot of your body in that moment of time. However, taking the InBody test consistently, every 3 - 4 weeks will give you a timeline of your progress in health and fitness. You will be able to see muscle gain and fat loss from your exercise and diet on the body composition history in the printed report.
Protocol to do before InBody Body Composition Analysis
As with any health scan, following the recommended guidelines will produce reliable results. It is recommended to test every 2-4 weeks under similar conditions and maintain the same conditions for subsequent tests to effectively track progress.
This will ensure that the changes observed are a direct result of recent lifestyle changes to diet and or exercise, rather than external factors.
Maintain your normal fluid intake the day before.
Stand upright for a minimum of 5 minutes.
Remove any socks or pantyhose.
Remove all heavy objects such as watches, belts, wallets, jackets or sweaters and hats.
Warm yourself up for 20 minutes in cold weather.
Use the bathroom.
Wear the same clothes each test.
If you feel dehydrated, drink 16-20 ounces of water 45-60 minutes prior to testing.
Keep the same routine as the same as the first day of testing as possible.
Eat or exercise for at least 3 hours.
Consume alcohol or excess caffeine for at least 24 hours.
Use a shower or sauna.
Use ointment on your hands or feet.
Do not become over hydrated.
Do not take the scan If you have a heart pace maker.
