Body Fat %

07 Jul

So after this long journey of weight loss I have never taken my body fat percentage. But I was very curious to know where I stand. I was thinking I was in the mid 20s.


Using the caliper: Using a caliper. (females) take the supra iliac measurement by pinching your skin and pulling it out a bit. Clamp with the caliper until the arrows line up. Do the same for the front of the thigh and the tricep, or back of arm. Do that twice. If the numbers are far off, do it a third time and average the two closest numbers. Add the 3 measurements then use the chart to find your body fat percentage. On the vertical axis is where you find the total of all three measurements, then go to your age group and there’s your body far percentage. It’s the same procedure for guys except measure the chest, abdomen, and thigh.


It was pretty exciting to see that I’m at 18% and fall in the athlete range. It almost makes sense though since my weight seems so heavy for what I actually look like.
