Hi Fit Peeps - Here is a useful link to calculate your body fat % for both men and women:
Personally, I like to use the Jackson/Pollock 7 Caliper Method; there are other tests available.
Make sure that your fitness routine includes aerobic fitness, strength training, stretching, core exercises, and balance training.
Well, I could say that at Mommy Fitness and Conditioning, we are beyond balanced :)
A sample of #MFC routine:
Run (1 mile per day)
Stations (alternating upper and lower body workouts per station)
Stretching improves the range of motion of your joints and promotes better posture. Stretching also aides you in relieving stress.
Cardio helps you to breathe faster and deeply; it maximizes the amount of oxygen in your blood. Therefore, oxygen is efficiently traveling through your body; you won't feel as if you are out of breath when completing daily routines that exert you physically.
Strength training increases bone strength and muscular fitness; you maintain muscle mass during a weight-loss program.
Core exercises help train lower back, abdomen, and pelvis muscles which aide you in using your upper and lower body muscles to full capacity.
Balance training helps in avoiding future injuries, especially at an older age, such as fractures.
