    DEXA Body scan

    There's a deal going for DEXA body scan at $39 (Aus) at DealsCombined Australia

    Is it worth it? and how accurate are they?

    Its a novelty thing, nothing more and nothing less. And who cares what the results are? Is it going to change whatever your goals are if a machine says you're at 15% or 20% or 25%?
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Not too accurate unfortunately.... likely +/– 5% or something in that vein despite what they claim.

    Save your money.

    The mirror can tell you that

    I firmly believe these kinds of tests add nothing to your diet and training methods. I've had various done including immersion testing, BIA, 7 point caliper. I only care about weight trend and how much ab definition I can see (and strength levels of course).

    Mirror, tape measure and to some degree a scale are the best tools. I remember a friend I hadn't seen in a few years said he was down to 8% via DEXA and when he showed up he was 15% minimum. Don't waste your money. Go buy protein with the money
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough

    You know when you've reached your goal by looking in the mirror, not what some machine tells you. No machine can determine if you're happy with your physique.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.
