Losing fat but maintaining weight? jc3717 4 2 yearsfuba141 (10): If you've been doing this for awhile, then you'll come to know what's best for your body, it's a never ending process. Everybody is different too. For those stubborn thighs try adding bodyweight squat to your routine. It worked for a lot of people.

measured BF n am just FRUSTRATED._. Illadian 14 3 yearscardinal (6175): Go by how you look and feel. It's literally an insignificant number you're getting worked up about. My gym scales claimed this morning I was at 7.2% body fat. At my lowest weight they claimed I was 5 %. I believe I have never been 5% and right now I'm no lower than 9%. I have also observed using these scales over a prolonged period of time that tons of factors effect the number. If I reintroduce more carbs, weigh myself at different times,...
From 22% BF to 27% in a week?!?!? Jessi_A 8 4 yearsjja0016 (829): alot of the times even scales are inaccurate week to week unless you're keeping sodium levels the same, drinking the same amount of water, etc.. also weighing yourself at the exact same time week to week, before or after you go to the bathroom, etc.. what @Method said is the best way by looking at yourself in the mirror

It is based on equations I've developed through over 6 years of research and analysis of data from drug-free champions both past and present."

Body fat estimation Lowrenc 12 5 yearssohail92 (271): definately go on a lean bulk around 200-400 calorie surplus. You look about 16%~ but should definately concentrate on adding more muscle mass before cutting.
Body fat callipers BWestern 3 5 yearsKReed (165): Calipers ARE accurate. As long as the person testing you know what they are doing. I do fitness assessments everyday with Lange calipers. Much more accurate than biolectrical impeidence machines.
How can you calculate body fat precentage ? jeeza_1234 5 6 yearsKReed (165): How is that a bad site? It is recognized and recommended by ACSM. You obviously know more than they do though, so why don't you educate us.
Bodyfat % changes Morgan 4 6 yearsThor (5028): It's best to have someone else do it for you. Try get measurements from your tricep, bicep, subscap, illiac, abdomen, thigh, calf. Chest is optional. Measure on one side only each time. Grasp skin to bring up the skin and tissue but no muscle. Do it cold (not after a workout, or at the end of the day) and fasted is a better than fed. You can't just convert the skin fold tests to a percentage - you'll need a formula or a chart. A quick google...
