View Full Version : body fat % formula with calipers

07-10-2006, 03:00 PM
I just got my calipers from bodybuilder.com. The instructions that came with the caliper say to pinch at the belly 1" above the hip bone. Then use the mm measurment with the included chart to get a body fat %. I have had body fat tested in the past and it was always done with 3 measurments...leg, arm , and belly. Does anyone have a formula that i could measure 3 areas in mm and convert to body fat %? thanks.
