What the hell are Calipers? I have googled before you ask but they just look like measuring sticks how the hell do you find out your BF from that? Even if they give you ever measurement of your body.. i dont get it.

Because i was wondering about my BF level, ive developed a very slight sort of 'over hangy' belly which as an ecto ive never had before, so that means obviously bit to much stored fat.. but my arms and legs dont have any fat on them their so toned and my waist and sides dont have any lab and are lean, its just this random droop bit ive developed :s

hahaha, cardio is for pussys but it have to be done. Now and then I enjoy swiming but only when there is harly anyone in the pool.

over on the other forum some guy said that he wrap his waist in cling film to loose the extra fat, but I very much think is BS. can anyone comment on this?

you could introduce a bit of tread mill or cross trainer after your training, just easy for 15 minutes, that is what I do, my knees are not what they used to e now

Intense cardio (treadmill) is not to good for body building. you can loose muscle as well as fat.

I tend to think that doing a routing weights, eating well and resting is all I need to do and on the long run I feel good I look good. To be honest I hate those guys in the gym that stare at themselves on the mirror for ages, if you become to concious you will never be satisfy and be unhappy.

Really i would love to have the best fitness and endurance, along with the massive body and power except at extremes they cancel each other out i guess. I want to sort of soliders body you know.. able to run for miles without breaking a sweat but also being a bad ass with rippling muscles and power lol, solider is best kind of analogy for it really, functional fitness and strength
