I'm a 35 yr "young" female, 5'5" and 135 lbs. My lean mass is 99 lbs & my fat mass is 36 lbs (26% body fat). What is the ideal or healthy balance between lean mass & fat mass? Or should I just pay more attention to the body fat % figure?
My goal is 22% and not sure how I came up with that %, but it was a goal I set after find out my beginning body fat was 39%. Does it really matter what the charts say or should I just keep going until I feel good about what I've done?
Also, my work out buddy just turned 40. She's devistated that her body fat % automatically went up just because she's in a different age bracket! Why would age have to do with it if you are working out, eating well as opposed to being a 40 yr old that doesn't work out and doesn't eat well. Very confusing! Sorry so many questions....I was on a roll.
