Default Bf%. ?

Ever since I have been a member I have noticed that just about every one claims to be 10-12% body fat. But never seem to post pics. Itís always the same when asked I will post in a few day or I canít figure it out. How are they getting this number.

That's a pretty normal bf% to be around. I've always heard that if you have visible abs, then you're in that ballpark. So that's what I've went with. I could be mistaken, though.

Those are worthless.

Get a dexa, bodpod or hydro dip to get real fat %.

Those things are not that accurate, just like MK said. One thing to keep in mind if you do use one of the electric ones, they often have an athletic mode. Makse sure you are in the proper mode.
