    Been gone for a bit. Before left, blew past first goal range into next.

    Body fat is 16% at 125 says scale. Thinking 122 - 125 is a good place! I look tiny.

    boney collar bones, ribs in dťcolletť / sides, defined shoulders and the v in arms with veins popping from fingers to elbow when carry groceries. Legs lean but no booty and lost definition in quads. Hamstrings too tight. Upper tummy flat. Hardly any lower tummy.

    Need to start core training and do little something in hotel room - gym is TINY and filled with males. Iím one of 2 females and other one looks more like dude. Sheís the only person who stared.

    No one bothers me.
    The safest Iíve felt in all my business travel.

    Take care!

    I'm going by this guide:

    **Marcus's HIT Dungeon**-female-body-fat-percentage-pictures.png

    So are you around about the top middle?

    I'm currently on T3 and Var trying to get below 10%. Currently I'm around about 10 - 12 %.

    Started doing abs again yesterday and I think I'm going to do abs on every workout day (it's been a few years since I've trained abs seriously).

    Weighing in at 125 today. PCP says lost lean muscle, too thin and wants 5 pounds back- quads, booty.

    Iíve NEVER had doctor tell me to gain! I canít commit to gym workout bc of work schedule so he wants me to do anything while working 12 hours daily. Hmmm. Itís not a bad idea.

    3 more days! Picked up 2 month membership and met the most comprehensive and amazing chiropractor EVER. I want to smuggle him in my suitcase. lol He adjusted shoulders, knees, pelvis, wrists, rib, along with the regular stuff and recommended strengthening rhomboids and lats plus yoga. Iím twisted as in scoliosis so this seems a reasonable approach.

    Iím looking to start working out in a week!

    Some people have the attitude, "If it's no broke don't fix it", when it comes to chiropractic. (And of course some people think chiropractic is a load of hogwash).

    But anyway, what do you lot think about chiropractic for people who lift weights? Should a weightlifter go to a chiropractor a few times a year just as a preventative measure? Or would you only go if you had something that needed to be fixed?

    I think it's a great preventative measure. We get routine blood work several times a year, see doc's for routine checkups. No different with chiropractors. Especially worthwhile if into bodybuilding due to the stress we put our bodies under. Key is to have a chiro that can do limbs, not just back. Not all of them go beyond the spine.

    A good chiro is a blessing; especially for back and neck tension and spasms. Add in deep tissue work and I'm a happy camper!!

    You've got a good plan there, GGR. Flexibility plus a strong core is the key to a healthy spine.

    Keep is in the loop, Clarky!
    A good chiro can do wonders, but sometimes it takes more than 1 visit to get the kinks worked out.

    If you get a chance, push down your kilt a bit and let a good tech do some deep tissue work on your back if the chiro gives you a decent report. Just getting some blood flow though tight back muscles will feel AMAZING!
