What does the DEXA scan tell me about muscle distribution?

In the Baseline consultation we’ll tell you how your muscle is distributed around your body.

The report shows you your left-right imbalances but Bodyscan’s huge DEXA dataset means we can also plot your muscle distribution across arms, legs and trunk (torso). This top-to-bottom distribution is not in the report itself, it can only be revealed thanks to our extensive database of 17,000 scans.

If your muscle distribution is uneven, you can even things out by focusing resistance training on particular muscle groups. But an uneven distribution may be expected due to your favourite activity – eg, we’d expect a keen cyclist to have more muscle in their legs than elsewhere!
