Hydro? Not too sure. Calipers are unreliable according to some.

The key to getting accurate measures from caliper measures is to take 3-5 measures of each area and then take the average of those. measure yourself the same time of day and under the same circumstances for 4-5 days in a row

I prefer calipers. I don't believe I get perfect results as to determining exact body fat percentage, but they do provide a consistent and accurate measurement of my progress in how well I am doing in gaining muscle/losing fat.

not sure what a good way is but bodyfat scales i personally dont like them...i look around 14-17% but it measures me as 23%-25%....but then again maybe i have alot of inner fat that cannot be seen..
