Well, me too lol. I actually got it tested with a caliper a couple of times. I've never been tested under 7.5%. 7.5 is actually very low!
By the way, the best way to track progress is to measure your skinfolds with a caliper. The cheap one are actually much better than one could think! I've never seen any difference between them and the most expensive one.
IMO, the best way to track progress, and this is what I'm going to do, is to measure your skinfolds yourself with the same caliper everytime. Do not put the numbers in any formula, only focus on the sum of the skinfolds and don't try to convert it in fat percentage with a formula, this is where in the process that we lose all the accuracy. Tracking your progross this way ensure that there's as little bias as possible because it's always the same tool and the same person doing the measure.
