go to a public place, strip down to underwear and start dancing

if you get whistles, it's low enough and time to bulk

if you get arrested, you're fat and need to cut

DXA scan is the Gold Standard. If you really want to know then $100 is worth it.

Even the expensive clinical-grade methods aren't perfect.
This is stuff like:
-Bod Pod
-Dexxa Scan
-Ultrasound Skin Thickness test

Fat calipers are insanely innacurate since most people can't do it properly. Legit there are "fat caliper technicians" who train to do this accurately.

Electrical impedance tests = bullshit (these are the ones which you stand on/hold on to and it measures your BF % by sending a small electrical current through your body)

Legit, just submit a photo on a forum like bb.com (4chan will just tear you apart lol) and ask for experienced users to estimate visually. Like I think I've gotten to the point where I can estimate within +/- 1% error margin.

PS: Just to show how BS some of these methods are, I did a bod pod test at a university kinesiology laboratory before my competition. It sais I was 2.1% BF which is impossible as I'd almost be dead lol.

When I asked the technician doing my test, he said that unless you cut the subject open, it's impossible to get an accurate BF % estimate.

I find it so weird she's from my home town.

And that her mom was cheating on her dad, and Lorde probably knows now, and she's come to terms with it and her parents are still together now.

She seems pretty down to earth. But I don't know her.

It's just weird. My family hung in circles with her family, all rich and famous people. Then she blew up. And I was left with this empty sort of.... disappointment in myself and a severed connection that was never there, like a phantom limb scenario.

mine say im 10% but that's bullshit

Post story pls

Mine showed ~7% and it looks legit
>>
>>35600361

I never met her.

I never will.

Even the guy that her mom was cheating with doesn't talk to any of the family any more. They took that ticket to fame and wealth all the way, one-way ticket, straight off into the sunset on that one. Her mom's a force of nature. But it's all controlled. Wellington's a weird place, man. But it's like any place: You're there because you're running from something, stuck in something, or too scared. You'd think that wasn't always the case but it actually is for everyone and where they are. I could go on but I'm rambling

By bodybuilding standards, 15% IS catastrophically fat. Also keep in mind it depends how good/bad the lighting is.

FWIW; yesterday, there was some report on German TV. It was about some shitty exercise gimmick, and they went to some doctors in Munich for the before/after comparison. And those doctors used the same formula Scooby uses (Chest, abs, thighs).

And let me tell you, in bad lighting, yes, 15% looks fat as fuck. One of the guys had a 15% bf before and looked like shit. In bad lighting, even 12% looks kinda chubby, because that was his "after" value.
