Segmental Lean Analysis; sounds complicated right? This is the ability of the InBody 570 to measure how much muscle is in your trunk and each of your arms and legs. Here, at the best personal training gym in Clearwater, we have found this ability particularly helpful for clients with nerve injuries or muscular imbalances.
Imagine this scenario: Bill has a lower back injury he suffered a few years back playing golf. He feels that he suffered a nerve injury because his right leg is weaker and has less muscle, and is nervous that this will only get worse. In order to get himself better, Bill comes in to Rock Solid to get on a strength training program. He joins our four month Rock Star program because he is committed to regaining the muscle and strength in his injured leg. We start the program by putting him on the InBody and see that his left leg does in fact have a whole pound less of muscle than his right leg. After Bill has worked hard in the weight room with us for four months we revisit the InBody. Along with his reports of how he is feeling and watching him gain strength in the weight room, the InBody will help us quantify how much muscle he has gained in that injured leg. Did he gain muscle in that leg? Are his legs closer in muscle mass now than when he started the Rock Star program? These are questions that only the InBody can answer for us.
We are so excited to have this machine to help keep us accountable and to help you get the best results possible.
