    Lied Rec weight scale

    I often weigh myself on the scale located in the men's rec. locker room. Wanted to know if any on here use it and, if so, find it to be accurate.

    I use a bathroom scale at home but it typically weighs me at 8-10 lbs. heavier than the one at the Rec. I tested the one at home with a 25 lb. dumbbell and it was accurate.

    Also, anyone know which scale the wrestlers use?


    There was one?

    Re: Lied Rec weight scale

    I've never tried the one at the rec, but I do know that sometimes a scale can be off at 125 even if it is accurate at 25.

    Re: Lied Rec weight scale

    I always found that scale to be off too, on the lighter side.

    I know exactly what you mean! Thought my home scale is off.

    Re: Lied Rec weight scale

    I'm hoping it is accurate...for my weight's sake.

    I just assumed it is as they use it for intramural wrestling and Iowa Games weigh-ins.


    There was one?

    There is no way its accurate. I've weighed myself on two different scales apart from the one there and the other two matchup while the one at the rec doesn't.
