I've had great success with LeanGains protocol. I went -30% below TDEE on rest days, 100-200 cals below TDEE on training days. 2g of protein per bodyweight kg, 30g or so carbs on off-days, a lot on training days, balance coming from fat intake.... (more)

The method of choice seems to be to test all these methods (Tanita scales, calipers, military charts, expensive hydrostatic testing) and use the numbers that are most flattering. :) Depending on which method I use, I may be at 8% or at 14% body... (more)

Tabata's are great, but full recovery sprints are useful tools as well, especially if you are just beginning. There are several methods of doing this: ??? Sprint for 45 sec - 1 min/walk slowly for 45 sec-3 min. Repeat for 6-10 intervals. As you... (more)

My scale says I'm 20% body fat, but looking at example pictures, I look nothing like the guys with 20%. I'd say I'm probably closer to 17% or 18%. So obviously, something is off. Does anyone have suggestions for getting my BF% more accurately? (more)
