gymcels are just so fucking retarded, i have never seen a more low IQ group of people, they are incapable of making bodyfat estimates, hell, in 2016 they still think you need 1g of protein per lb of bodyweight, despite there being numerous studies saying otherwise

this guy is 18% bodyfat as measured by a DEXA scan, your normal gym bro would say 'looks about 10%'

Two supposedly most accurate bf estimation methods - dexa and water weighting give quite different results.

Fucking lol at that bloated potato jaw

It's like there is some unwritten law that gymcels have to be potatofaced light bulb heads

dexa is a weighted average of all bodyparts
hydro fluctuates depending on water retention and assumes equal fat distribution in the population for each bodypart, which is simply not true

You will only gain body fat if you do sarcoplasmic hypertrophy.
Also the face looks fat because they don't have a massive bone structure.

Most of us are using this type of model for estimations:



If that's inaccurate, post a better schematic to work from.
