Body Fat Reader?

  1. Body Fat Reader?

    I am new guy starting a REAL workout, not just for sports like in high school. Well Im 29yrs old now, i lost 40lbs from weighing 235lbs. I have been doing low to medium intensity and lifting alot more than i ever have.

    I want to start logging my progress and would like to log my body fat % as well. Ive searched the net and all have pointed me to measuring various parts of the body and plugging them into a "calculator" online but i dont feel its accurate.

    Are there any other ways of measureing body fat accurately? Any machines that are accurate that i could buy?

    thanks for any help.

  2. I use an Accu-measure caliper, and it works pretty well. Not as dead on as a machine so to speak, but gets you into a couple percent. They also have digital versions of these.

    Accu-Measure Body Fat Calipers

    Can be purchased anywhere. Run a Google search using: body fat calipers

    The more points the more accurate. Try doing a search on the internet for skinfold body fat calculations.
    All my life I've never stopped to worry 'bout a thing,
    Open up and shout it out, an' never try to sing,
    Wondering if I've done it wrong,
    Will this depression last for long, wont you tell me,
    Where have all the good times gone.
