View Full Version : What's my bf?

My family got me a BIA scale recently, which says I'm 17% bf.

Previously I had been using a tape measure to guestimate it and I was getting 12%.

What do you think my bf is?


Note my big goofy smile!

nice arms bro, 12 is a good guess 17 is way off

Yup 17% is waaaay too high.

I'd say your about 11%. Nice and lean. Good job.

Rock Steady

I would guess 14-16%, but I know less than most.

Are your PRs current? You're pretty big for those lifts.

Yeah, the PR's are current. I don't know why I'm weaker than my weight. It's either a mental block or maybe my muscle fiber isn't as dense as those who have been lifting longer.

Though also, those are 5x5 PR's. I don't test my 1RM these days, I just warmup and do working sets.

And the Squat and Deadlift PR's are increasing constantly in large numbers. I put 10 lbs on my squat PR just last night. I expect them both to be over 200 by Feb.

My bench though is only increasing very very slowly.

Thanks for the replies!
