Fred, most of your bodyfat is intraabdominal...you will need to get into a tub.

Electrode test is not a good test. I am 5'8 210# and my trainer does the 11 point pinch test. Right now I am at 10.2% and the electrode show me at 28%. If I was 28% I would be a fat bastard.

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

I hear the electode test is more accurate than the pinch. I've been 5% by the pinch but that's not right.

I bet I have used over 30 personal trainers and even in highschool it was always the pinch test. I don't see how pulling on you fat is less accurate than a machine shooting impulses threw your body. Never see a doctor's office using a digital scale. Always an old school stand up scale.



Maybe davbrucas can answer this one.

he mentioned it already. intra abdominal fat, "heart attack fat". It's stored around the internal organs. Caliper tests won't show it.

We all know that Hydrostatic Testing is the most accurate. We were talking about electrode vs pinch test. Also calipers can not measure obese people. They only open up so far.

I prefer the mirror method...i dont care too much about a number...especially an inaccurate number like the pinch test. I really just care how i look. If i had to guess...I'd say I'm about 11-12% right now. I've gone up quite a bit over the past few months. I used to be a comfortable 8-9...based on calipers.

Most people underestimate their body fat. If you can pinch one inch in your "love handles" area then you are more than 15%. I have no idea which of the two mentioned bodyfat estimators is the most accurate. Someone google it...

1 inch thickness...or 1 inch distance from the rest of the body?

It really depends on how hard i pinch and how hard i pull. Based on that logic...If i am really determined I can probably pull myself to about 40%....thus proving the inaccuracy of a pinch test. The problem with an Electrical Impedence test really kicks in when someone is approaching the 10% mark....as someone mentioned it will commonly register 5%. I dont believe they will ever be truly accurate because of the properties of electricity. Its always going to take the shortest path...thus limiting the measurement to the upper, medial, or lower region of the body.

the love handle test would show I'm about 90% BF, LOL.

Some just carrymore fat there like some have in in the gut, ass, etc.

Our family just has handle. My dad is 5 11" and weighs 155 lbs and still has some handles, LOL.

I would guess I am in the 20-25% range from the times I was tested and the way my body is now.

Either way, no where near the 10% range.

I bought a $50 pair of calipers that have a pressure sensor to make sure that it is done correctly. It is supposed to make it more consistent, but I can take the same measurement 10 times in a row and never get the same reading.

I also have an electrical impedence scale. It will fluctuate at least 10% within any given day. It relies on how hydrated your body is.

I have found the measurement system on mybodycomp.com to be the most consistent.

Either way, congrats on being so low. I wish that I was there.

Mine will jump around by 3-5% depending on the time of the day. With my wife its more, like 5-7%.

I don't put to much stock into it.

Just for kicks I put my trainer on the electrode tester. He is 6'3 325#. His body fat is easily between 8-10% right now. He got on the tester and it said he was 55.4% body fat. What a joke. For small guys and girls it works ok. For big boys it is a joke.

My trainer is a big boy. Micaa Hooker. He is bulking up for a show in March. Needs to get to 340# then cut down to 290-295#@ 2% body fat for the show.

You get down to about 5%. 3-4 days before the show you drink no water. Very weak and dangerous but that is what it takes to get rock hard 2% look. Anybody that has been to a pro show knows that those boys look like they are going to pass out of stage.
