    what are some levels of body fat percenage, like what is too high, what is too low, what is decent, what is good? I was measured tonight and i was curious where i stand in the scheme of things, although mine is all fucked since i havent been able to do cardio since feb. due to a knee injury. just curious. :x:

    You know whats good and whats not would really depend on what the athlete is training for. As far as the fat look, I guess you could say anyone below 15% is not fat by decent standards.

    How did you have it measured? Most simple ways arent that accurate.

    I would say anything under 14% is good

    3 point clamp thingy

    we had an athletic trainer come in and take all the HSwrestlers body fats since the state of ohio is now putting in measures saying you cannot drop below 7% body fat, otherwise you have to get a Dr. pardon saying it is healthy, WTF, dumb especially since all but two of our guys were below 7% right now, 4 months before the season

    glad it doesnt apply to since i'm going to college, the new rules say you cannot drop more than 1.5% body weight per week, if you drop more than this you are not elligible to wrestle would be 3.6 lbs for me :eek:

    so i did it for shits and giggles, since ive never had a good one done, the electro stat thingy i had done 3 years ago told me i was dead, so....
