    Accu-measure bodyfat callipers

    Anybody try these? They seem to be quite inexpensive and are supposedly the best callipers out there. How do you guys measure your bodyfat?

    Can you use these things by yourself? I had my BF done at the gym a while back, and some of the places the staff measured, I wouldn't be able to reach (between shoulder blade and spine, etc.)
