Top Rated Scales

You may not believe what I’m about to share with you.

I am finding out more and more that quite a few of the wrestlers I work with don’t have a scale at home.

Being a former wrestler, I have no idea how this is possible.

Back when I was in High School and College I was constantly checking my weight…maybe to the point of being neurotic. I easily checked my weight 6 or so times a day.

Now that I write that, yeah that does sound a bit over the top. But regardless, that’s what I did.

Anyway, what I’m getting at is that I almost always knew what I weighed.

So this post is for those of you without a scale at home, or who are in the market for a new, more reliable one.

Here are the Top 10 rated scales on Consumer Reports (from consumerreports.org):

1. Taylor 7506 (scored 95 out of 100 overall)
Suggested price on CR- $35

2. Tanita HS-302 (scored 93 out of 100 overall)
Suggested price on CR- $60

3. Escali B180R (scored 91 out of 100 overall)
Suggested price on CR- $30

4. Escali B180S (scored 91 out of 100 overall)
Suggested price on CR- $30

5. Tanita HD-357 (scored 90 out of 100 overall)
Suggested price on CR- $65

6. Weight Watchers WW39 (scored 87 out of 100 overall)
Suggested price on CR- $30

7. Weight Watchers WW110 (scored 82 out of 100 overall)
Suggested price on CR- $30

8. HoMedics SC-310 (scored 62 out of 100 overall)
Suggested price on CR- $30

9. HoMedics SC315 (scored 62 out of 100 overall)
Suggested price on CR- $30

10. The Biggest Loser 733BL (scored 62 out of 100 overall)
Suggested price on CR- $30

Accuracy and consistency were the two variables that the researchers tested.

The performance of both variables was then put into the overall score out of 100.

So give Google a visit and check these scales out.

Ultimately, I hope it saves you some early morning weight cutting for the rest of the season.

Hi, I’m Dickie (the author of this blog). Here I am with my good buddy, Kyle Dake. While he doesn't have a nice coat like me, he is pretty good at wrestling. Here's what he said about my training system:

Before I began lifting using Dickie's system my wrestling skills were getting slightly better. I've now been lifting under his guidance for more than 5 months and I have begun to dominating ALL of my competition. At first I had little faith in Dickie and his program, but now I would run into a wall if he told me I would get stronger! I know it sounds insane, but I would. The bottom line is Dickie is an expert and knows what he is talking about. If you want to defeat those kids whom you've always lost to and reach a level you never thought possible, I suggest you start lifting using Dickie's system immediately.

-Kyle Dake, 4X NCAA Division 1 National Champion
