    DEXA, Hydrostatic Weighing, BodPod, Calipers, Bioelectrical Impedance... From the picture alone, I'd speculate you're >=20%

    Making a prediction of body fat from a photo, let alone in person is highly speculative.

    i personally would guess at 18%. as said above though its very hard to judge on a photo. best thing to do is go to a gym and get someone to do a 9 point caliper test.

    Yep, it's too tough to call from a picture. Everyone carries fat in different places. For instance my arms are way more ripped than yours, they look around 10 percent, but at the moment, I have 1000 times more fat on my stomach than you do, lol

    lol ditto.

    If you look at everything other than my stomach and lower back, I'd pass for sub-10%, but I'm certainly not

    Calipers or bodpod. But in all honesty, it doesn't matter - just about what the mirror looks like.
