I am planning on doing a cut so I thought that I should probably have an idea of where I am at before I start. I have no idea what my bodyfat is, I am curious what you guys think it's at?

The first one was me at 170lbs and the rest are me at 191lbs.

P.S. Do you guys think I have gyno?

you kidding?!

I'd say your somehwere around 15% or 16%. Doesnt look like gyno but its hard to tell from the small pics. Back is looking lean though.

^^^Thanks man, I'll try resizing a pic it's probably not the easest to tell from this pic but it's the only pic I have at the moment. I was a puggy as a kid and I'm not sure if it's normal to have multiple creases of skin around the armpit area. I will try and get some more photos if that would help.

I thought those weren't suppose to be very accurate.

If you measure correctly they can be quite accurate.

~16-18% IMO, keep us updated on the progress.. Unless u have calipers, or get a dexa done, asking for a general consensus on bf is ur best bet IMO.

Detard, I was. Some are accurate, if you've measured right.

I thought you were talking about the online ones as well. I don't really want to fork out some coin for calipers at the moment, I rather spend it on some food. The only access I would have to some calipers would be at the gym. But I'm sure if I asked the P.T. there he would try to get me set up on another crummy program like the ones he had me on when I started lifting/ talk me more often.

I have already learned a lot from this site so thanks for you help guys and girls :smoke:

Apparently he was. He's incorrect - they are terrible.

Let the mirror be your guide.

16-17 No more then 17% though. Probably closer to 16%. The pics are very far away so its hard to tell but judging from the side of your stomach/legs/back etc. everyone's estimate seems right.

I don't think you have any gyno at all. Too many people think they have it. You look perfectly fine/normal.

Good luck with whatever you're doing.

If you use a calculator that combines height, weight and waist measurement you can get a good estimate. Certainly no worse than cheapo calipers used by someone doing it for the first time.

OP: Get a tape measure and measure around your bellybutton. Then go to

Once I find my measuring tape, I will try that and let you guys know where it turns out.
