So, went to a local university and had the Bod Pod fitness assessment.
Let me just say that I have vascular arms, vascularity on my upper chest and shoulders and when I’m pumped up in the gym, a lot of muscle separation. I say all this because apparently I was fooling myself into thinking I was leaner than I really was.
If you’re not familiar with the Bod Pod, it is second only to the dexa scan and has an accuracy rate of 1-3 %. It measures air displacement rather than water.
If you’re really curious about your BF, the cost was $30 for me and they also provide you a caloric needs chart based on activity level. Most major cities have businesses that offer it or like me, you can check with your local state university.
