Body Fat Measurement
I was wondering if anyone had a good practice for measuring body fat? I know I use the floor scale that provides me with Fat, Muscle, and Water. Today I was talking with someone at the gym and said I should use a average of a hand held and a floor?

The bodyfat calipers are supposed to be more accurate for measuring body fat percentage levels. Generally, they will provide you with a lower reading. The reason I says supposedly, earlier, is that you have to have someone with years of experience performing skinfold tests. Otherwise, the readings will not be as accurate. I always liked bioelectrical impedence because it did not involve human error. Bioeletrical impedence does not work well for bodybuilders, though. They will need a skinfold test. Just my two cents.

You could average it but I wouldn't.
