I tested my body fat on one of the hand held ones before a workout and it read 5.4. How accurate are those damn things. I'm pretty damn lean but I dunno if I'm that low lol.
a handheld one told me i was3% than 20% 27%....my caliper told me 8%, 8% thab 8%
Yea il go test the real way. Lol.
usually handheld BIA may be about 3 % off. calipers can vary on type of calipers used and person testing you. underwater weighing was considered the gold standard but there still may be a significant fluctuation in percentage. The only true way to tell is with a cadaver but screw that lol. BIA is a good reference point, there is no perfectly accurate method, just estimates.
a bodpod is the best eay
post pictures of front, back and legs, it ain't too hard to figure out
don't get those stupid ones attached to the scales. It said I was 55%Bf when I'm 5'10 185 lbs.
