For example, all that really matters is consistency with measurements, and the mirror.

It's kind of a weird comparison too because 40% through 20% is some schlub taking a selfie with a potato, 15% on down is clearly professional photos with good lighting, posing, and maybe some makeup.

I was guessing the first image was ~5-6% bf and not 3-4%. But what the heck do I know, might be true.

Here's a good question, Lyle maybe you have the answer to this. I see this chart floating around the internet in various places.



Where do these numbers come from? Hydrostatic weighing?

Probably. If you read the article Body Composition Numbers on the main site, you'll see that tehy are more or less identical to what I state there.

The site put their logo all over it, but clearly yours is the original:

I can't recall where I saw or found it or if it's in the public domain.

In case anyone wants to see the video of me doing the DEXA scan, here's the link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8UfkKy8LKc

I clocked in at 7.7%....

Comparing myself to these pictures, I think I'm ~15%. I weigh 187lbs.

187lbs @ 15% = 159 LBM / 28 BF
177lbs @ 10% = 159 LBM / 18 BF

Looking at those pictures, I think there's quite a large difference between 10% and 15% in terms of how impressive they look but in my case, those two are 10lbs apart. Interesting. Onwards with UD2.0...
