Hydrostatic Body Fat Testing

It’s been a little less than four years since I had my body fat percentage accurately calculated at a mobile testing station. Last night I had it done again by Linda of bodyfattest.com outside of a health club in Reseda. Last year was pretty rough on my body; I was under a lot of stress
