    estimate my bf%

    i wasn't sure where to put this. if a mod knows a better forum, move it please.

    i'm just looking for educated guesses from experienced people. all i have to go by is the little handheld thing at my gym. i've heard they aren't very accurate.

    some info that may help:

    i'm 42 yrs. old / 5'7" / 195lbs / waist - 34in. / chest - 50in. / arms - 16in.

    devices that use bioelectrical impedance to measure body fat are not accurate at all, hydration levels drastically effect the test results.
