When I joined 24 hour fitness back at Thanksgiving, they measured my bodyfat for me and came up with 23%. It has been impossible to get them to measure it for me again without a major hassle, so I bought some calipers and did it myself. My left side seems a bit fatter than my right, but I ended up with between 13.6% and 15.6% using a 7 site test. If I average the left and right side measurements I get 14.7%.
I could very well be doing this wrong, but that seems like a huge jump. I was prepared to be happy with sub 20% numbers. I think I look a bit better than I did 5 months ago, but I weigh almost exactly the same (195). I can definitely lift more weight than when I started, though.
Does this seem right? In a few weeks I can measure again with the same calipers and get a better idea of change, I guess.
