    When I saw the front I thought over 15 but after seeing the back I think 15% might be close. A few sessions in the tanning bed wont hurt your cause either.

    Not over 15 for sure, close to 15 sounds about right.
    Your stomach probably looks better in another pose (flexing abs, and more downward pressed pose, you are not the champ of posing yet, and probably look way better in real life then in these posing pictures, also get some tan.

    Looking good

    I Obviously 20% is to high, was it a handheld device? I am not sure enough to guess but keep at it you are making great progress!

    Facile, it was the scales that were used i've heard these are inaccurate though.

    http://www.bmi-calculator.net/body-f...at-formula.php

    I used this formula and it came back at 14%. Next time i will ask for the calipers.

    Will update again in 2 weeks.

    I think all the automated BF calculators are designed for the masses and not specifically BB's, If they ask for your age there is also an age bias programmed in, becuase I am 38 the machine makes an assumption I am fatter than I am, I always do my real age and then drop it by 10 years and do it again, my BF is 2-3 points lower???

    Age discrimination!!

    Great improvements bro, whatever you are doing is working! Are you doing low intensity in the am, or HIIT?
