Overshot My Recomp Goals – Part 1

I did the WVU Bod Pod this morning. Back in Oct 2017 I was at 25.3% body fat. My goal since then has been 15% body fat. Apparently I undershot that goal and I am now at 7.5% body fat. This is confirmed by my Nokia Scale when I set it in athlete mode (something I hadn’t done since I didn’t consider myself lean/athletic).
I am happy with the re-composition aspect because the test shows me gaining 8 lbs of lean body mass at the same time that I lost 36 lbs of body fat. I’ve succeeded at the recomp goal way beyond my expectations.
 So what’s wrong with that? See Part 2 for the risks involved with low body fat.
