The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    how to do 5-7 point test w/ bf calipers

    i would really appreciate links to places that would explain how to use my calipers. i know i can use them as a ruler to gauge changes, but want to know how to use them properly. any reputable place (that's why i'm not using the first one i found online) that has a way to compute / instructions for a test using at least 4/5 different points on the body.

    I went to http://www.rustyiron.net/bodyfat.htm and did the 3-point using my Accu-Measure both last night and this morning. Last night I got a reading of 13.15% and this morning i got 13.05%. Now, I honestly feel like I am not that low at all. I kinda feel like I am closer to somewehre around 15-17%. The 3-point is known for being inaccurate right?

    not as much as a 1 point. the more points, the more accurate; all there is to it.
