Body fat

How does everyone on here measure their body fat?

I am eager to find out what percentage I am at the moment and have been told that bodyfat scales are crap and are not accurate is this true.

These are the ones i was gonna go for HoMedics Model 9105 Family Body Scale

    you can buy a set of calipers online pretty cheaply. Your gym may be able to test you pretty accurately otherwise.

    You can use callipers (cheap on ebay) but its a bit tricky to do youself
    or you can get the gym staff to do it.

    But if your not competing the mirror is a good indication, unless your like the 2 delightfull
    chaps at my gym who claim there 10%bf yet there gut sticks out further than their chests.
    (obviously have fairground mirrors in thier houses)

    Well they give us a laugh

    one caliper very gently on the genitalia and the other on the car battery, pretty explosive results

    You are not your Job
    You're not how much money you have in the Bank
    You're not the car you Drive
    You're not the contents of your Wallet
    You're not your ****in Khakis
    You are the all singing all dancing crap of the World.
