Episode 302 Show Notes
In this week’s episode of Strength and Scotch, Grant and Heavey discuss the best methods for measuring body composition changes at home. From smart scales, tape measurements, calipers and lifting progress, they cover the gamut of both fat loss and body recomposition tracking. Heavey also helps Grant get over his hatred of the scale.
