Today, I visited Dexafit and had 3 things done. First, I had a dexa scan (DXA scan) done to determine my body composition, including body fat percentage. Then, I had my resting metabolism tested. Finally, I had a Fit3D scan which made lots of measurements of my body. The whole thing was incredibly interesting and informative and I think getting updated results over time will be very motivating. Since this is all long I will do a separate post for each procedure.
Here is the post for my resting metabolic rate testing.
And, here is the post for my Fit3D scan.
The Dexa Scan
I will start with the dexa scan. I described the dexa scan in my prior post talking about the upcoming testing. The scan was pretty much what I expected from the scans I had previously had for bone density purposes. You lay on a table very still. I took off and my shoes and my ankles were actually strapped together and I was told to put my hands underneath my posterior.
