    thats what i was thinking. and you can be 5'9 and 200 with less than 20% bf if you're packing muscle. you have some bf but i highly doubt its near 30%.

    I was 225 when I took that pic last season. I only weigh about 200 to 205 now. I think the scale is wrong because it seems awful high.

    I've never had an accurate reading from one of those scales. Calipers are much more accurate.

    Wait so you got this bodyfat reading on a scale?

    Just putting your height and weight into that doesnt account for muscle, if you really want to know go get a legit testing.

    Well it depends, you could be 200lbs and 35% bf depending on how much muscle mass u have.. plus its kind of hard to tell your bf from a pic with pads on lol

    You are using your BMI (body mass index) which is very bull****. Find a hospital that uses A BodPod or hydrostatic weighing. If your friend has a pool you can look up the process for hydrostatic weighing online. The margin for error on each is below 3%. Also idealy you want between 20-25% to maintian average bodyfat and a healthy life style. Anything above 34.99 is considered obease, but there is no way you are above 28.

    Some scales are accurate (The REALLY EXPENSIVE ONES), my gym has one, not really a scale in the traditional sense, but it uses bioelectric impedence and gives a whole bunch of stats other than weight and bodyfat

    And i have gotten the same numbers with calipers as I have with the scale, done moments apart

    wow. thats high. you dont look like it from the pic. how did you take your bf% test? i learned in my kinesiology class that when people use the body scale, its a high chance that its off. It can be off by 10% or less.

    not to beat a dead horse, but the hand helds, scales, and even calipers aren't the most accurate. they all have places where you can have error with things like sweaty palms. the best is taking the number via hydrostatics.

    Ya I think those things are ****ed up. A guy that is 5'11 and weighs 205 with 5% BF, isn't as healthy as the guy who is 5'11 180 pounds with 15% BF.

    Personally, if you stick with football throughout HS you'll be fine, but that dont mean go ordering BK or ****donalds 24/7. I take it your a linemen, and if your a starter then more power to you. Spend time in the weight room gaining muscle, keep up your endurance a bit, specially if your a guard (all that pulling and trapping can be a pain some times) and most importantly working on your form. Do you do any other sports? If not, maybe consider track. Our coaches here always enjoyed seeing us linemen throwing and taking a couple of jogs around the track with the runners.. just a suggestion.

    Don't worry too much about ur fat. Remember to do a lot of speed work and even some HIIT. You'll lose some fat while gaining muscle if you can consistently keep a strict workout plan and good diet. It won't come in like a couple weeks, but through consistent effort, u'll eventually see good gains.
    1 Corinthians 6:19-20

    19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

    35% is really bad..most lineman have around 20-24%..D-1 lineman usually have around 15%-20%.. I hardly doubt you have 35% body fat..Your height may be a factor why your scale says 35% body fat. Get a hydrodensitometry body fat measurement its the most accurate way, it may be expensive but it is worth it.

    35% is pretty bad, however if you got that number from an internet calculator those things aren't really that accurate. The way to reduce the BF% is to gain lean mass.

    Mine isn't to much better but once I'm done with football for good I'm cutting like theres no tomorrow.

    "Sometimes you just feel tired.
    You feel weak and when you feel weak you feel like you wanna just give up.
    But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength
    and just pull that s*** out of you and get that motivation to not give up
    and not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse." -Eminem
