It’s time to start thinking about getting your body in the best shape possible now that the weather is getting better. Just in time for bathing suit season, we have the perfect recommendation. Meet the Skulpt Personalized Smart Fitness Trainer, a new training system that provides customized exercise and nutrition guidance based on precise measurements of your own muscle quality and body fat.
Skulpt offers you the ability to optimize your workout routine to get more efficient and reliable results, and get fit faster. To do this, the training system comes with a hand-held body scanner called the Chisel to accurately measure muscle quality and body fat across 24 muscle groups using electrical impedance myography.
The device is simple to use. Get started by simply downloading the Skulpt app to your iOS device and charge the Chisel handheld device for two hours to ensure it is fully charged. The charge will hold for two to four weeks on one charge.
Once you have done this, it’s time to start taking measurements. To begin, select the muscle you want to measure from the home screen, or click on your “fat %” or “muscle” scores at the top of the screen to measure your total body fat % or total Muscle Quality. When the muscle has been selected, use the spray bottle provided to spray the sensors with water. This is a necessary step and will help the sensors make better contact with your skin. As with any electrical medical procedure, the sensors need a conducting medium between the electrodes and the skin, just like what is used for ultrasounds and EKGs. Place the device against the appropriate muscle as directed on the app, and make sure all of the sensors are making contact with your skin. When the measurement is ready, your Chisel’s light ring will turn from red to blue. You will also see a measuring progress bar on your app, and your results will show up on the app as soon as the measurement is ready.
The unit is designed to measure your fat percentage and muscle quality of up to 12 muscle groups on each side of your body (left/right). The 12 muscles are: biceps, triceps, shoulders, forearms, chest, abs, upper back, lower back, quads, hamstrings, calves, and glutes. For a total body fat percentage, or total Muscle Quality score, you’ll need to measure three muscles: triceps, abs, and quads.
Once you have completed measuring, it’s time to decipher how good your muscles are. It is based on a scale from 0 to 100, where a score of 50 is considered average. A higher Muscle Quality relates to stronger, leaner, and more fit muscles.
After taking a measurement, your score is categorized into one of five fitness categories:
● 0-20 MQ: Needs Work
● 20-40 MQ: Fair
● 40-60 MQ: Good
● 60-80 MQ: Fit
● 80-100 MQ: Athletic
This might be the easiest way to get in shape and stay in your best health possible by keeping track of your food intake and taking regular measurements to get you on a healthier routine.
