No, it's different but it may have been influenced by it. It doesn't take bone structure into account which is a major difference.

it actually tends to be the natural guys that get angry about it, especially the "permabulkers". They hate the idea that they're not carrying as much muscle under all that fat as they think they are. I've seen some arguments on forums between Casey Butt and angry bodybuilders and they get really nasty. It usually comes down to whether or not anyone has actually surpassed the limits he's set, and no one ever has...

For me it predicted a maximum bodyweight of 195.1 lbs at 20% bodyfat. My actual bodyweight is about 245 lbs at less than 20% bodyfat.
