    is there anyone who knows how to interpret FAT MASS / MUSCLE MASS /WATER MASS

    HIGHT = 178cm

    WEIGHT 71kg

    my FAT MASS = 15%

    MUSCLE MASS = 59%

    WATER MASS = 64%

    what does it mean? to get better muscle do I need to increase muscle and water mass? what % do I need to achieve to grow nice muscles?

    how to work out how many Kg of muscle I have? what are the best % for muscle mass and water mass I should aim?

    thanks a lot, if any of you have any idea, please let me know, also it would be nice if you add your fat/muscle and water mass and weight and height

    thanks

    If you increase your muscle mass, without gaining or losing fat, your body fat % will decrease. If you lose muscle mass, without gaining or losing fat, your body fat % will increase.

    Subjectively speaking, for your height, weight and body fat, I think your body fat is rather high.

    A good target for you is 78kg with 10% body fat. 8% would be better.

    Considering your current stats, to reach 78kg with 10% body fat, you will need to gain 9.85kg of muscle mass and lose 2.85kg of fat.

    For 8%, you will need to gain 11.52kg of muscle mass and lose 4.41kg of fat.
