    Reeeeaaaallly?

    If it comes up as this, I'll probably shart myself, but in a good way, haha.

  4. What do you mean what you will come out at?

    I thought the Dexa scan was used test for measuring bone mineral density.

    Did you stop taking your multi vit and calcium yesterday?

    HGH/sleep enhancer: HGHpro
    Test Booster: TestoPRO and STOKED!
    Preworkout: MANIAC Fruit Punch and Pink Lemonade

  5. 10% BF as per the dexa IDK.

    Yes.

    It is used for that, it is also used to accurately assess body composition. It is second to none in this aspect.

    Ha. No.

  7. ok in that case 88% Lean body

  8. id say not above 10%

    The DEXA is primarily used to measure bone density, along with a host of other scans, but BF% happens to be a part of that host. All BF measurements have their short comings, but the DEXA is held as a gold standard, even above hydrostatic for BF accuracy.

  10. It can also measure body water content. My guess is 14% fat.

  11. ill say 11-12%

  12. Woot!!

    9% so says DEXA.

    I had a scan done a year ago, here's what has changed since then:
    • Dropped 17 pounds of fat
    • Gained 12.7 pounds of lean mass
    • Dropped from 17.8 - 9% BF

    Yeah, I feel good about that

  13. so do I win with an 8% guess or does Somewhatgifted win with a 10% guess? I believe The Price is Right gives it to whoever is closest beneath the right number.

    Haha.. Yeah, legs and ass are quite lean, apparently.. Wow.. No junk in my trunk

    Thanks a lot man!!

    The test was free yes, one of my professors runs the FIT (fitness institute of texas) lab at my university, he made DEXA available to everyone who wanted it done in his class. I jumped on that shit like crazy.

    Well I'm still covered under my parents insurance, being a college student.

  26. how can insurance cover that? there is no real (medical) reason to get one of these scans right, that would warrant them covering it?

  27. Down here they're $40 a scan for students. Fee was waived for me, as my professor runs it.. Fukc yeah!

    I need to get one of those, im probably like at 25 or something.

  30. OZ did you get other stats to go with that? Id be interested in seeing all the results.

    DEXA's are fairly popular with the elderly. As Ozark mentioned, bone density, perhaps arthritic diagnosis. The BF% reading is a side note, but it happens to be an incredibly accurate note.

    Like his bone density?

    I think it reads things like subcutaneuous vs visceral fats, organ size, etc.... I've always wanted to tell someone "your axial skeleton sucks, bro. Do some weight bearing exercises and stop being a pu$$y"

    Thats what I feel like telling some of the douches at my gym with calves and thighs the size of my arms.

    Doing the same damn arm workouts every single day I see them.

    Let's see...

    02/24/09
    • Bone Mass: 7.2
    • Total Mass: 174
    • Fat Mass: 14.8
    • Lean Mass: 152.4
    • Percent Fat: 8.5% (I've been rounding up)


    Compare that to a year ago,

    01/28/08
    • Bone Mass: 7.3
    • Total Mass: 178.8
    • Fat Mass: 31.8
    • Lean Mass: 139.6
    • Percent Fat: 17.8%

    Note: Everything is in pounds, just in case anybody wondered.

  38. Thanks for the rep bro! Down almost 10% body fat and up over 10 lbs of LBM is an awesome achievement for a year i think. Do you have a before picture?
