Fine piece of science. Their methods...

 

 

In all, the sums of skin-folds were measured for almost 4000 students. The neuromuscular reaction time was also calculated using a ruler drop test. 

 

 

...allow for multiple applications of their astute findings.  My personal use of that would be getting a wrinklier dog if I wanted that stick to be fetched the fastest.

Skin fold measurement is the gold standard for body fat % calculations... What's wrong with their methodology?

If by "gold standard" you mean cheap and fast then yeah it skin-fold is gold standard. If by gold standard you mean accurate then no.

Is now the part where I, having been called out as wrong, double down on my stupidity? Or do I silently slink away from the thread?

You gotta claim someone is a potential cheat and then have a shit fit against half the regulars here first.

Hydrostatic Weighing, Air-Displacement Plethysmography, and DEXA (Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry) are the most accurate ways to measure bodyfat.  The skin calipers and bioelectrical impedance devices are the cheapest and most convenient methods, which has made them the gold standard testing methods for the cheap & lazy who aren't too concerned with the accuracy of the tests.

Holy shit - this is a game changer!

 

Totally explain's the fat GM's.  

 

I've been gaining weight and noticed my reactions appear faster.  Just don't want to get so fat that I have to move up to IDPA and have to wear fish-net stockings.


Wait, I smell more than donuts...

I didn't think that their reaction time measurement was up to par. Should've gone this way

The neuromuscular reaction time was also calculated using a ruler drop test. 

More bogus science. The ruler drop test has been proven to be an unreliable method in many reaction time tests going back 30 years. Notice the test population was all black youths from similar demographics. Might as well say to be fast one needs to be young, black, have adipose fat tissue, blah, blah, blah...
