Either way this confirms I can start eating again which is nice.

Okay, I'll post a pic in a few weeks after I put on some mass. Shouldn't take long now that I got promoted to a non active job.
A lot of people underestimate his body fat. At less than 15% you can see first row of abs without flexing...sincerly i think you re not at thar level. It is important in my humble opinion to have a honest opinion about bf because you best bet would be lost some pound arrive at 10 -12 (not easy expeciallly if you was on diet before) and than start to clean bulk.

I supposed every photo is relaxed,not flexed, but at 15 % body position let me think that he flexed abs. Right now i think to stay in 13-15 range...i see my up row of rectus ,relaxed...vein in arms and shoulder but the most fat is on leg.
I assume every one below 20% is flexing or at least tensed. Above that it doesn't really matter.

I got a bodyfat measurement via a 'styku' machine done last week. It was free for signing up so I figured why not.

Not sure if anyone has used these before but they are like a 360 scan of your body that takes visual measurement... While I think it was helpful and showed me things like postural alignment I need to fix and measurements like my right arm being bigger than my left....

I forgot to take my shorts off so it couldnt read my legs and perhaps that contributed to inaccuracy but it pegged me at 11.6% bodyfat. There's no way I'm anywhere near that. I just started working out on 5/1. I'm doing 5 pullups... I have a little gut and 33 inch waist... I mean as recently as 7 weeks ago I was eating donuts, chick fil-a, and cheese fries while at work.

Visually I estimated I was 22-25% when I started 5/1. I've only dropped 10 lbs via lengthy cardio sessions and no compound lifting until this week. I haven't even been doing RFL or anything. I'm DEFINITELY above 15% and I'm almost certainly in striking distance of 20%, perhaps 1-2% above/below

Pretty disappointed in the accuracy of that thing. Online it tries to say its more accurate than Dexa... I'll try again next month (another free one to measure first month progress) and see if its more accurate without the shorts. Also, I should be able to come up with a better visual estimate after I lose a few more pounds as it gets easier to estimate the lower you go IMO.

Has anyone used this form of bodyfat measure?

Thank you Lyle. This website is a game changer once you understand the mechanisms behind fat loss/muscle gain.

Spun my wheels for years prior to finding this site.
