    Body fat %


    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.

    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.

    ^ this. If you know what to look for visually, you can usually pin it down to within a few %.
