Exercise: Upper Body

Are You Losing Fat?
You can't trust the scales to tell you the whole story - are you thinner and fitter after 10 weeks as measured by your waistband?  Have your legs and arms and abs firmed up?  Even if the scale hasn't changed much - are you leaner?

Bodyfat Percentages
For good health, bodyfat should be above 5-25% for men and above 12-32% for women.  Walking and other aerobic exercise is a very effective way to decrease body fat.  But to gain muscle mass and tone, strength training should be added to your exercise routine.
