- Rating: 9/10 (I love the Skulpt Chisel. You can really track your progress with both its muscle and body fat measurements)
I decided to purchase the Skulped Chisel recently and I must say, I have been presently surprised. Its actually accurate! The last one of these kinds of product I used was years ago and it was just a fat measurer. I remember it was terrible and didn’t even come close to being accurate. This is one of the reasons I stayed away from these types of products for so long.
But I’m glad I decided to get the Skulped Chisel. Its new technology that actually works.
How the Skulped Chisel works
The Skulped Chisel a takes accurate measurements of both your body fat and muscle.
It does so by using what is called Electrical Impedance Myography or EIM. This is a noninvasive way to measure both fat and muscle. Small electrical currents are passed into the body to measure amount, density, structure, etc, of both body fat and muscle.
EIM technology is NOT new and untested. Its been studied and tested for over 15 years and has been around in the medical community for a while now. It is often used for evaluating neuromuscular diseases.
The technology has been around for some time now, but it hasn’t always been available to the general public. With the Skulped Chisel it is, and its affordable.
And no it doesn’t hurt
When you hear that it passes electrical current into your body you might get scared. Well don’t be. Its such a small current that you won’t even notice it. You literally won’t feel a thing.
What measurements does it tell you?
As you can see from the picture to the right, it gives you both MQ ad Fat%, which I will go over briefly.
MQ or “Muscle Quality”
Although it doesn’t sound scientific, this term actually is a scientific term. It refers to the amount of force a muscle can produce relative to its size. This is determined by the density of the muscle fibers and other factors.
Of course you probably already know what this is. Its just the percentage of your body weight that is fat. The higher the percentage the more fat you have.
Besides these two muscle and fat statistics there are also some terms around the outer edge of the circle as you can see. They include needs work, average, fit, athletic, and skulpted. These aren’t as important but its still a cool feature of this product.
How to Use the Skulped Chisel
The process is very simple and only takes a matter of seconds. If you look on the back of the Skulped Chisel you will see metal areas. These are electrodes and sensors that need to be pressed against your skin to measure your muscle and fat.
To get the best readings it is suggested that you wet the metal area with water. So you could spray it with a spray-bottle or just wipe it with a wet towel.
Where to place it
You can place the Skulped Chisel on 24 different muscle groups. This includes all the main muscles areas, back, abs, arms, chest, shoulders, legs, butt, etc. Before you place it somewhere it will ask you where you are going to. So you select whatever you want and then place it there.
Once it starts to measuring it will only take seconds. It has an LED light that will be blinking as it is in the process of measuring.
Syncs to your smartphone
The data that the Skulped Chisel finds is then synced to your smartphone. So ya, you should have a smartphone to use this.
The Skulped Chisel app comes with the actual product so you don’t have to go buy anything else.
How the Skulped Chisel can help YOU
It can really help you accurately gauge your physical improvement.
One problem a lot of people have when they are trying to get in shape is that they only weight themselves on a scale. All this will tell you is whether you are losing weight. It won’t tell you anything about your muscle or fat.
People give up because the scale isn’t going down fast enough, I see this all the time. Well this is because people tend to gain muscle at the same time they lose fat. So while the scale might not be going down, their physical fitness level IS actually going up.
With the Skulped Chisel you can measure both fat and muscle. Your scale might be staying right around the same, but the Skulped Chisel is showing that you are losing fat and putting on muscle. Thats exactly what you want and now you know you are making results happen.
It also tracks your progress. So you can see at earlier dates where you were at as far as muscle and fat, and compare them to later dates.
Is the Skulped Chisel affordable?
The Skulped Chisel is priced at $99.00 at the Skulpt website. And this is the cheapest you can find it. You can Click Here to purchase the Skulped Chisel
So it is fairly expensive, but if you are serious about getting in shape, then this is better in my opinion than a scale or a regular bodyfat monitor.
And besides the Skulped Chisel measuring your fat and muscle, it also has a lot of other benefits.
The Skulped Chisel app that comes with it provides you with some great additional features. These include:
- Guest mode
- can measure clients, friends, etc. and email copies of their results
- Fitness advice
- based on your physical standing, the Skulped Chisel app provides you with fitness advice that is tailored just for you. This includes suggested exercises, sets, reps, and weight used
- this feature shows you how you stand with people of the same age and sex as you
- Calorie counter
- this one is particularly great. It suggests how many calories you should eat based upon your goals, body fat, activity, and more. I know many people will love this one.
Should I get the Skulped Chisel?
Like I said, I have been disappointed in products of this kind in the past, because they have been very inaccurate and a letdown. But I am very happy with my Skulped Chisel. Its accuracy is very good and its an overall quality product.
Measuring both your body fat as well as your muscle is a great way to keep track of your physical fitness level.
What it comes down to is whether or not you are willing to pay $99 to buy the Skulped Chisel. I know for many people this is out of their price range. But if it is in you price range then I say go for it. Its a quality product that provides what it is supposed to. You won’t be disappointed.
