      Default Testing bodyfat

      I know there are several ways to test bodyfat, and there are margins of error with them. Yeserday a trainer was testing member's bodyfat so I said what the hell and had mine tested. Well I was pretty happy to see mine was at the lower end of the scale fof "normal". At 43 years old, I was happy with the number but not ready to settle at it, lol!

      Yes they do. When women start getting below about 15%, they can have issues with there hormones. I do know that!

      Jump in the pool and see if you float.
      The Troll is a stupid idiot with nothing better to do but start trouble but don't be afraid to engage back with The Troll in a friendly manor.

      The Troll is kept on a tight leash The Troll will be under supervision so he don't get himself into too much trouble.

      The Troll eats his own shit!
