BMI is a joke for bodybuilders and athletes. According to BMI I am obese...but right now I am sitting below 10% BF. When I had my physical last year my general Dr. made an arse out of himself. After everything was said and done he had the nerve to look me in the eye and tell me I was obese and needed to lose some weight to keep in optimum health. I just smiled and said "not a chance in hell". He just said "yeah, I figured you would say that".
If you have a decent amount of muscle go by BF measurements. Calipers or submersion are the best methods for getting an accurate measurement.
