Case Study: Low muscle mass male

This 26 year old man was very surprised to find his percent fat at 23.7% despite only weighing 123 lbs. His total fat mass is quite low at 29 lbs, but due to his very low muscle mass for his age and height, his percent fat is too high. A young male should maintain a percent fat that is below 22%, especially in the lower abdomen.
