    Default Want to know your bodyfat % ?

    For anyone who hasnt yet purchased a set of callipers, (you should really) then if you post up the following, I will work it out for you.....

    Your Height,
    Your Weight,
    Your Waist measurement,
    Your Wrist measurement,

    Please provide the body measurements in inches and the body weight in pounds, this is for ease of calculation.....Thanks

    *** For females, please include the Hip measurement as well....

    Taking the waist measurement.
    Measure your waist around the belly button, Do not guess the measurements, or take the size of the jeans, pants etc. USE A TAPE MEASURE.....!!!!!

    Taking the wrist measurement.(males only)
    Using a measuring tape, wrap the tape around the wrist, this is the area that is "above" the hand but "below" the wrist bone.

    Taking the hip measurment (females only)
    Take a fabric or plastic tape measure and wrap it around the hip area, the tape measure should be secured at the fullst part of the hip area, and is always over the buttocks. Make sure the tape is straight, parallel to the ground and not cutting into the hip/buttock area.

    No probs mate, its handy to keep your eye on the total bodyfat, and also the fat free mass as any loss of muscle will show in that figure even before you notice it in the mirror..
