Hey guys! I met up with a buddy who is a personal trainer/nutritionist. I am about 6 months post op knee surgery, and starting to get serious back into the gym. My goal is to build up some solid muscle before even thinking about cutting down. That way I have something respectable to show off.
He weighed me, and tested me with a handheld Omron BF% calculator. He stated right off the bat that these things arent 100% accurate, but its a good tool for measuring progress over the next couple months.
1.) How accurate is this hand held device on BF%?
2.) He started me at LBM x 16, + 500 for calories to try and add size with as little fat as possible. Is this a good start?
Macros are around 60% carbs, 30% protein, 10% fat. I log all my foods on fitday, and I am steadily hitting around that 3300 cal/day mark.
