What is your body fat? - Page 2

post #16 of 219
I had the caliper thing done a while ago and it was 12%, but I have abs so can this be accurate?

Depending on where you store fat, it certainly could be.

I would guess I'm somewhere around 12. I will probably break out the calipers the next time I'm home, which is in a couple of weeks.

Probably a bit lower. It's a more or less thing.

I've also got abdominal definition so you're not the only one like that...

9-10%...dropped 60 lbs. of fat in the past 12 months and got back to the physique I had back in college...made a huge difference in the fit of my clothes...6'1" and look much better at 177 than at 235

Never been measured, but probably around 12%, from what I understand. Decent ab definition, excellent vascularity, etc. The small amount of fat I carry seems to be stored in the lower back. I have no interest in reducing my fat, but would like to add about 10-15 lbs more muscle (am 5'9" and 155 lbs). This is becoming easier as I've gotten older and my metabolism has slowed down a little

9-10 right now in winter, in the past I get as low as 6-7 in summer. We'll see this summer.

Last time i checked I had a 9.8. I'm sure I gained a bit more.

I oscillate between 0.6% and 1.2%. I'm also a trained nutritionist, professional model, MMA enthusiast and personal trainer on weekends. I eat 14 meals a day

I am sure I do NOT want to know.

Body measurements. Use a tape to measure various parts of your body then enter the measurements into a web site that will calculate your body fat percentage.

Here are some you can try out:
http://www.healthcentral.com/cholest...-2774-143.html
http://www.linear-software.com/online.html

Note: The calculations may not be completely accurate, but the error will be the same each time, so this technique is good for tracking relative changes in body fat percentage, even if the absolute value is not correct.
