    5 weeks out 6.4%bf dexa scan

    Hey guys i am competing in my first comp at the wbff world championships in the open fitness category, i had a dexa scan today witch is the new "gold standard" for measuring exact body composition. so bellow i have posted the results of the scan, where it shows how much fat and lean muscle i have in specific areas of my body.

    For example i know my left glute is bigger then my right, and the scan confirms this haha.
    I have also posted pics of me taken today. to show you what 6.4%bf looks on me (i am pretty depleted of glycogen at this point)

    i am 5'5"
    145lbs and am aiming for 3%bf

    Some of these pics makes it look like my arms are not symmetrical but they are pretty close and verified by the scan to have only 50g difference, im just posing weird as i still need to practice lol.

    The dexa scan was done at the bone wellness clinic in toronto.

    i dont know man, if i had to guess from the pics, i would have given it 10 or 11 percent, but who knows, your abs and quads are soft in comparison to your back, again who knows what those machines say. i think at 6 percent all kinds of fibers and striations would be showing on the body.

    if your goal is to hit 3% in 5 wks u better crank it up. you look to be about 10%.. remember it's not what some paper says but what you appear to be

    You are looking lean bro, but 6% is stretching it, regardless of what the Dexa scan said.

    i have the same problem some days .. just depleted and dont have enough muscle mass to push against the skin so u look "fatter" than you actually are

    thick skin sucks lol

    no science just going by my experiences with day to day dieting in low BF ranges when u don't weigh 185 pounds
    what can you possibly say to a guy thats ripped up like mother @$%#! rambo

    Haha ya I love how everyone is an expert on BF% just by looking at a couple pics. Ya bud toss the scan results they're obviously wrong (jk)

    You're ok for 5wks out .. don't stop there and if I was eye balling I would have put you in the 7-8 range, but I'm not a scan device haha.

    I remember for my last cut I stood on 2 differ industrial bio electrics that both read 3.0% and did a couple diff skin fold types that ranged from 3ish to just under 5% ... never tried a dexa.

    Anyhow ... pics tell you when you stop, not the scan results but you likely already know that.
