Could use some help from my skinnier PE friends.
I’ll cut straight to it- I’m a big fat lovable guy who is on a weight loss program. Well, chunky anyway. LOL
Long story short I was experimenting today on various ways of measuring BPSFL and found that by simply switching from a ruler to something with a smaller end surface area, in this case a pencil, I could get another 1/2-3/4” on the measurment. Obviously I have a bit of a fat pad which could very likely be causing the difference in measurement between the ruler and pencil.
So…I was hoping some of your skiiny guys could try using a pencil or something similar to see if you also notice a significant difference in the numbers. No need to be real precise, just note approximately where the end measurement spot is on the pencil and then use a ruler to get an actual number.
If there is little/no difference then I can surmise the pencil measurement to be a more accurate number (in my case) . In turn this will cancel the variable of my shrinking fatpad as far my record keeping goes. I guess it might also be a good way for someone to keep accurate measurements if they’re packing on the lbs as well.
Thanks to all!!
