DesktopWeb FormText   brawn : calipers (round 2)Sat, 12 Jul 2008 03:55:16 GMT # 

BMI has my bodyfat percentage at 30%. body-part measurement estimations put me at 21-24%. so i'd been trying calipers for the last 3 weeks. using calipers, i'd been consistently measuring 14 to 16%. this seemed low to me, so i thought i was using them incorrectly OR my calipers were broken. finally went to the gym and had a trainer measure with their calipers ... 15%. for my age, the normal range should be 15 to 19% ... so i'm at the lower range for normal. the problem is i've still got some belly. supposedly you have to get below 10% for abs to show definition. i'd have to drop another 10 lbs to get that low. current plan is to finish out this month of fat loss, next month will be a baseline month, and then i might spend the next 2 months after that trying to get to 10%. i won't do another 3 months of weight loss in a row ... it's starting to wear me down.
