Just in case anyone was curious, I put my info through all the calculators I provided in the Powerful Fitness Tools post and came up with the following
- My ideal weight is somewhere between 151 and 170 lbs
- My 110/64 blood pressure ranks as normal, while my resting heart rate of 63 beat per minute also ranks as “good.”
- My basal metabolic rate is 1,889 calories per day.
- The cholesterol calculator says that my 142 LDL is in a healthy range.
- The exercise risk calculator says I am ready to start working out.
- According the to diabetes risk calculator, I am currently not at risk for diabetes.
- The body fat calculator (non-caliper) claims my body fat is 23%- I think that is too high.
- No measurement on vertical jump
- The male girth calculator says that my 7 inch wrist suggests that: My chest should be 45 1/2 inches; my wait 31.8 inches; my hips 38 inches; my biceps 16 3/4 inches; my forearms 13.2 inches; my thighs 24.5 inches (a piece I guess); my calves 15.5 inches; and my neck 16.8 inches. Those all sound like good goal numbers to me.
- the answer to the longevity quiz made no sense to me.
- My 50 push-ups in one minute ranks as excellent (in the top 15%) according to the push-up calculator.
- And the frame size calculator surprised me when it said I had a “LARGE” frame- I always considered myself medium. However, I ran a few more numbers, and if my wrist were an 1/8 of an inch smaller I would rank as a medium frame. So I am right on the dividing line between medium and large frame.
