Pinch method isnt the best- but in terms of reliability vs convenience it's good.
It should give you a fairly accurate reading if you do it right.

Like those guys said, its not the most accurate...but it is the cheapest and easiest, that is why trainers use that method. One main problem with the test is that the skin fold thickness can differ greatly from one person to the next. Its tough to calculate what is skin and what is fat. Either way, being told that your at that low of a bf% is fantastic!
