I recently bought a scale that calculates weight, Body Fat, and Hydration Levels, among other things. I did my first weigh in and it said that I only have about 3.9% body fate and weigh about 136 lbs. Now, before you go saying that the scale is inaccurate, I intentionally bought a scale that was a little more expensive and is designed for lean athletes.
My questions is, is my super low body fat actually hurting my cycling? I will say that my FTP and endurance is definitely on the low side, but I'm not sure if that's from my lack of training, only starting training seriously a couple of weeks ago, or something else.
BTW I'm only in my second season of cycling and I'm 5'11, in case that matters.
