how do YOU measure body fat percentage?

  1. how do YOU measure body fat percentage?


    im curious how everyone here tests their BF% to know whether they are on track or not.


    i would venture to say that barely anyone actually uses the hydrostatic testing lol.
    For me, the action IS the juice.


  2. i use skin fold, but i am at college and I am in the exercise and sports science department so i have access too skin calipers.

    I use full ISAK proformas, including 8-site skinfolds, girths and bone breadths. I also have access to one of the top ISAK anthropometrists in the world to do them when I want them done

  4. The Cutting Edge Technology of LAG aka look and guess...requires only a mirror and a pair of eyes.

    Accuracy rate = +/- 10%

  5. 4 fold caliper test sometimes
    visual most of the time

  6. In my opinion, hydrostatic testing is the way to go, use it here and there, seems to be the most accurate.
    doing my own thang!

  7. I bought one of those inexpensive calipers. So I'm not sure how accurate I am doing it on myself. I check three sites, and enter that info here http://www.linear-software.com/online.html

  8. I have access to a Bod Pod that I use on occasion, but I usually just go with the 7-point caliper measurement.
