Quad size and caliper reading.
 
Question for experienced caliper users...

My quads are "relatively" lean...measuring 22 mms. My quad measurement cold is just a bit above 31 inches right now.

Any clue what my size might be if I hit 10% bodyfat or 5 to 10 mms via caliper?

Also, what is your estimated mm reading and estimated bodyfat percentage. Just trying to gauge how much I might dip as I drop the pounds.

What's your bodyfat at?

You are the squat king. I'm sure your quads will catch up. 24 is not that bad NT. My quads have always been disproportionate to the rest of my body.

Ouch! I have the opposite problem. My legs get so big that my wife continually asks if they're going to shrink much as I cut.

On the other hand, my pecs suck!

I've been hanging around 24.5" at about 9-11 mm and 14% - 15% BF. 5' 10" upper 2teens. I have to cut slits in the legs of my boxers so they don't bind up.
