The Importance of Muscle Mass

The human body has three types of muscle: skeletal muscle, smooth muscle (in the walls of the organs) and cardiac (heart) muscle. The majority of the body’s muscle is skeletal: there are over 600 skeletal muscles in the body making up about 40% of total body mass. So when it comes to building muscle mass, you need to focus hard on building, or at least maintaining, your existing level of skeletal muscle.

Achieving Optimal Wrestling Weight

Monitoring an athletes weight and body fat levels is crucial in assuring they wrestle at the appropriate classification. Tanita introduced the world’s first body composition analyzer (TBF-300WA) designed for High School and Collegiate wrestlers in 2005, using the ACSM and NCAA guidelines for weight loss. The new TBF-300WAplus builds on the success of the original model adding an increased weight capacity, larger platform, and enhanced printout, while still maintaining the unique formulas to determine weight classifications.

Testing Muscle Quality

Do you know there’s more to assessing your strength then just determining the weight (mass) of your muscles?

Using Tanita’s exclusive dual-frequency technology, we now have the ability to analyze and assign a value to your muscle quality.
