Curious about BMI?


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Curious about BMI? within the Women's Fitness (Female Bodybuilding and Training) category.

Excerpt: I was wondering about my BMI. My BMI is 28 which is overweight, which I am, so it is accurate there. My body fat percentage was coincidentally also measured as 28%. The thing is, although i know i have more fat than the average person,I also think i have alot more muscle than the average person (although I am not sure). What I am wondering is: is there a way of knowing my percentage of muscle? maybe from these calculations. Do people with a BMI of 28 normally have this amount of body fat

    It's maths. If you weighed 400lbs you'd have more muscle than an average person cos they're not that heavy. But if over 1/4 of you is fat I doubt the PERCENTAGE is different.

    BMI is yet another bullshit number put out there by cookie cutters. of course as weight lifters we have muscle mass which will bump that number up.

    Most BMI calculations are pretty off. Dexa scans can give you an assessment of everything
