Ok, anybody use the calipers by accu-measure? I've had them now for about 2 months or so, measure my b.f. at least once a week the way they say to. I've measured an average of 2mm on the scale, that's 3.5% b.f. according to the chart. I measured this all through cutting phase, and even now for about 3 weeks into post cutting, bulking phase. Am I doing something wrong here?

You're not necessarily doing anything wrong. Skinfold measurements of bodyfat can be off be several percent compared to underwater weighing, especially in people who are leaner or fatter than average.

your doing nothing wrong. I have the same calipers and they are junk. I prefer using the mirror now a days.
