Athlete Journal: Chris Duffin, Entry 38 – Body Fat Testing

I had some body fat tests done this week and also got some supplementation advice. The training week was great, but it ended with a mean case of the stomach flu.

Athlete Journal, Entry 38 -Body Fat Testing

I had my body fat checked via Poliquin Biosignatures and hydrostatic weighing. The results show that I’m getting back in a better range. Right now I’m sitting at 9.1% on hydro weighing. The Biosignatures gave me some advice on supplementation to focus on based on where I’m holding fat.
