I agree with you 90%. My ego needs the catering

However, itís nice to know as a baseline estimate (yes, estimate) where my LBM is, how itís changed over the year and what I look like at specific body fat percentage ranges. Iíll use this range of body fat percentage to gauge when I should start bulking. In any case, Iíll post the results here
