It gives Miles 16.67% BF (at 255!). You have a bright future in bodybuilding imo.


I guess the issue is just different distributions of fat?
definitely depends on bodyfat distribution. probably much more accurate at the low bodyfats those guys are dealing with, as usual. because that is definitely wrong.

i can extend my stomach to make the measurement around my belly button 45" btw. and 39" isn't "relaxed," but my stomach is never relaxed. it actually is uncomfortable to relax. but it's not like i'm sucking in hard to get to 39" though. it's just how i live my life.

That says my BF% is around 11%. Think thats a bit lower than reality.

Ding ding. That's me. I hate it.

Edit: But if I lost 45 pounds from where I was I would probably go from a 38 to a 32 so I dunno

Amazing work spenda. V. well done.
How much strength did you lose and how long did you do the RFL? I think you got a pretty good payoff imo strength loss vs 45lbs.

I should be starting a psmf in a few weeks myself.

42 to 32 with 45lbs weight loss seems like a lot. i was a 32 at 180 and am a (snug) 36 at ~225.

do you wear your pants really high up or something? like covering your belly button?

From what I can tell he is measuring an arbitrary point around his stomach, not wear he wears his pants, which would be much lower I assume. So his measurements really have no relation to pants size.

i have a big friend who, in an effort to hide his large gut, decided long ago that he would wear his pants at his belly button and let his lower gut sit concealed behind the zipper of his jeans. he never goes shirtless, but you can tell he has a "waist" at this point. it was probably the biggest mistake of his life.

You guys do not wear your pants on your hips? I thought that was where all guys wore their pants. Maybe that is a 90s weak thing.

I wear a size 32 that is supposed to be a "relaxed" or "anti-fit" for the lol-omos. Its skin tight.

i don't think anyone was referring to "waist" as the smallest measurement of the torso. when i say it i mean where i wear pants.

I was just making a comment that I did not think Spenda was measuring where he wears his pants, but somewhere higher.

eta: what I'm calling "waist" is at belly-button level.

On a side note, I just watched Erin Andrews on Dancing with the Stars. She has lost so much weight her arms are twigs and she has lost her T&A. Very dissapointing, and not particularly attractive (or healthy) looking.

When in doubt, increase it imo.

Edit: I actually don't know exactly what you did with that rep scheme but increase, obv

Re: **8*8*8 March version Two(2) ***88***8

So I'm in this hotel in Manila and I'm looking at the hotel gym. It's alright, but not ideal. I have:

Dumbells up to 60 pounds
Some sort of smith-like machine which I've seen before - it's a cage with a barbell attached to these metal poles but it can move in three dimensions, it just can't tip over on either side
A free standing barbell

So, keeping in mind that I will be squatting 280 but can probably only clean 135, should I do front squats outside the smith-like machine, front squats inside, back squats inside, or should I wield the barbell and destroy the machine for the good of mankind?

Also, what's the opinion on these machines in general? I mean, they seem pretty fine to me.
