I Bought some calipers today, and my bf% seemed a little off.

My measurements were:

Chest - 10mm
Abdomen - 12mm
Thigh - 11mm
Bicep - 4mm
Tricep - 5mm

Please tell me what you think my body fat is.

~10% looks bout right to me. With your abs showing that well I'd say it has to be no higher than 10 unless you are a genetic freak and store fat in places almost all males don't.

I'd say around 12-14%. Looking great regardless though man. Excellent progress!

Damn, looking good. Quite the thick midsection you got there. I like it. I'd guess 9-10%.

I'd say 12-14% as well. Hard to say without seeing the lower body, though.

11%.
Cool abs and lats. I know you didn't ask for constructive criticism but id say your chest is lagging a tad.

Based on the calculator on exrx.net with your 3 site measurements, age and weight, it says you are 9.2%. which is inline with heathj and Fenbay said.

That's a mighty large change for one month from this:

With the definition amongst your abs like that I'd say around ten. I would also like to see your legs.

Why did you zoom in only on your abs and most of your pecs? Show a picture full body, bodyfat doesn't just sit on your abs.

Look at Gaileo being the b.s. detector now:eek: , lol.



I agree, either the 2nd set of pictures isn't you or the 1st, or none of the above. Which is it?


You know, upon further review, maybe they are. That is one heck of a change for 1 month, what gives?

O crap St. patty you're being called out.

You need to post another picture showing your Tat or holding up a sign. Those picture are huge difference from your last. Please show us that your not BS'n. You do look awesome.

I can tell that he's used some sort of photo editing tool.The top half is white with freckles and the bottom half is smooth and tanned.

I could be wrong but I don't see how it's possible to have a tanned waist line but a white top half


*EDIT*Plus a change like that even with steroids is unfathomable

Ron - those are actually blemishes on my chest (acne and scars).

Two words guys, SHAVE and TAN.

(not a very good tan, but a tan nonetheless)

I was kinda amazed how much more definition I have without upper body hair.

The pic from a month ago wasn't at the best angle either, I had my 3-year-old taking the pic.

I'm actually flatterred that you guys are calling BS on me.

I'd be happy to take more pics to prove it's me.

I had to take the pics myself cause nobody else was around (I live alone). I'll try to get some full-body pics.

Thanks for the criticism, I'm gonna focus on chest more when I start bulking again.

I've gone through like 3 cans of animal cuts. I had a 4-week cycle of 1-test in April, but I don't think it helped as much as I thought it would.

I'd have to say my best supplements are discipline, hard work, and dedication.

ALL OF THESE PHOTOS HAVE BEEN UNEDITED. I'LL POST SOME MORE PICS TONIGHT TO PROVE IT'S ME.

Its possible because now that I've started tanning I'm like that too. My abs have gotten quite a bit tanner but my chest still looks pale in comparison. Its actually pretty funny and I've had a couple people mention it to me. I don't know why its doing it like that but it is. My lower legs are quite a bit darker than my upper legs and my butt has not changed any color at all. Its possible.

06-10-2003, 12:50 PM
you should include a sign in the pix mentioning WBB and mocking those that have called you out. :D

i.e. "WBB Rocks! Big Show is a ******!"

:D:D

easy Big-Ron . . . I think you got confused with Big Show

too many 'big' people around here I guess

funny how "Big" is a popular prefix. Why not "Medium"? :D

Callahan's right Ron - got you confused w/ big show. My bad.

06-10-2003, 01:28 PM
Patty, you look awesome. Amazing progress man. I have no reason to doubt you, and I've got an 8 week cycle of 1-Test en route to me as we speak. You gotta tell me exactly what you did!

ElPietro
06-10-2003, 01:44 PM
Just for the record I didn't dispute that it's you. It's just that ONLY looking at the abs isn't always best. I know all of us go on cuts, and check our abs everyday in the mirror, but you can have a very successful cut and lose no fat around your waist. So just judging from one area isn't always best.

Your body may need to lose fat around the chest, back, legs etc, before it even starts on your love handles or gut. In this case, obviously you lost a lot around the midsection, but it would be cool to see how much came off the legs or back, etc...

galileo
06-10-2003, 01:51 PM
All I said was that it was a mighty large change. I could tell it was you from the mole on your right oblique. However, I can't tell your means of achieving it from just a picture. ;)

FYI:
170 @ 15% to 165 @ 10% is 9lbs of fat lost and 4lbs of muscle gained. Whatever you did, it worked.

You're lying. :p

To get a real measurement of it, take a skinfold measurement of your subscapular(under shoulder blade), suprailiac(above hip bone) and axilla(under armpit, across from nipple) and tell me those measurements...

To be honest, I think I was lower than 15% when I was 170. I was given a lousy test at my gym, and I didn't feel it was accurate, but that's all I had to go by because I didn't have my own calipers.

Are you sure it was only hard work and dedication? Was some of that dedication medicinal? I only ask because it is a truly outstanding transformation, one that pushes the limits of what someone can do unassited.

He said he did a cycle of 1-Test, and I'm willing to bet he probably got a little bit more out of it than he expected.

I did 4 weeks of 1-test, followed it up w/ 20 days of 6-oxo and ZMA. That was in april. I'm about to post more pics.
