  • Waist Measurement and body fat percentage

    Hello, I've been dieting for a while with the goal of hitting around 10% body fat, maintaining it for a month or two, and then going into a bulk period. Using the guideline in your waist measurement it says my waist is about 32.3 inches. Is there a reliable correlation to this being around 10% body fat? The US Navy internet calculator says I'm 8% when I plug in my info, but I don't know how reliable that is.

    Nope. For example, my waist circumference is 31" but I'm probably about 13-15% BF right now.
