    Hand size - a way to check bodyfat?

    I heard people saying upper arm size is a good way to chek your BF. Not in exact numbers or something, just a good way to know your aprox. ~BF.
    Is it true? it there some kind of a equasion (sp.) that uses your heigh weight and arm size to check your BF?

    Thx in advance

    anything that doesn't involve calipers and/or immersion is gonna be a shot in the dark, at best.
