Are these actually any use?  I am on the verge of being obese when I do them

They assume an average physique so are really only useful as a guide.  If you've got a large build and/or are very muscular then expect a high BMI figure, even if your body fat percentage is low.

definitely not muscular, must be large build

BMI by itself is useless apart from loading life assurance premiums

oh dog - not the old "is BMI of any use" discussion again.....

generally a waste of time for athletes but useful as a measure of fatness for couch potatoes who do no exercise
