Don't Trust the Scale

As you may have noticed I'm in the process of updated my blog layout. I've also some work to do on finishing my tennis elbow articles. Sorry for the delay. they will be coming up. I also have a guest post coming up by Julie Gannon of be simply strong. Exciting stuff.

What I want to talk about right now is the scale. Please folks, don't rely on just the scale or your bmi as a marker of health and how fit your are. Along with that, your weight is not as important as your body composition. I wanted to share this because, according to BMI, and to a lot of folks a person who is 5'6 and 170 lbs is overweight. Well, have a look at Canadian bobsledder, Kaille Humphries. Just try and tell me that this girl is overweight and doesn't look good. Go ahead. try. 

On that note. GO CANADA! #wearewinter. (that is the first time I've used a hashtag outside of twitter, I'm not sure I like it.)
