Latest DEXA Results Are In 90 Days Post Hernia

Joe Abs DEXA Results 031617This morning I took my first DEXA Body Composition exam since November 25, 2015.  It has been just 90 days since I was released to workout after recovering from hernia surgery in October.  It’s also been just over 6 months since Ava Kalea Kennedy was born – and man is it hard to work off that baby weight 😉  !!!!

I have been working out pretty good – at home with BeachBody workouts and sometimes at a 24 Hour Fitness – but my membership there just expired, so now I’ll be working out at home and on the beach with BeachBody and Stacia Kennedy.  My clean eating has been pretty good, with a mostly pescatarian diet for the past month or so.

The last couple of times I had a DEXA scan, I was very disappointed in my results – I was expecting much better results – probably because I once tested out at 5.2% bodyfat on a BodPod.  While I know the BodPod is nowhere near as accurate as a DEXA scan, I was still hoping for less than 10% bodyfat.  In November 2015, I was 14.4% at 157.8 lbs.  Today I tested out at 14.5% body fat and weighed in at 165.9.  So in the last 16 months or so, I’ve not been able to workout much because of the hernia, my wife had a baby (usually a time of weight gain for both parents), had surgery, been diagnosed with AFIB, became a BeachBody Coach, gained about 8 lbs of muscle while maintaining a percentage of body fat that is lower than 92% of 25 year olds.

Not bad for a 54 year old guy whose abs are coming back ….
