I am not talking about calculating your BMI here, I mean a real test. The two standards I know of are the caliper test or the total immersion test. Both methods are probably good but I wouldn't be surprised it the results varied from each other. When it comes to fitness, it is nice to have some concrete numbers to measure the extent of your success. I have debated getting a test in order to set a goal. The cost can be a bit much and the availability of these tests varies from location to location. Have you ever had an accurate test done? Would you consider getting one?
