    Bodyfat Checked Before or After Cardio?

    Out of curiosity, are there any positives or negatives in getting your bf% checked after a strenuous session of cardio? Does it make any difference (maybe in bleeding out some excess water?) at all?

    Thanks for any input

    I don't see how it could make a significant difference. Maybe checking it morning then night but not before and after cardio.

    Yeah, what temperoath said. When you do cardio your body starts to push fluid to the surface to keep your body cool. Therefore if you do a pinch test it won't be as accurate. You want to make sure you're nice and dry.
