3-Point Skin Fold Bodyfat
3-Point Skin Fold Bodyfat calculator
The 3-point skinfold body fat calculator estimates a person’s lean body mass and body fat percentage based on their weight, age, and thickness measurements of 3-skin folds.
This calculator is established on Jackson pollock 3 point technique and tends to be accurate for some individuals. However, this method underestimates the body fat levels in lean bodybuilders.
Body fat percentage=495/ (1.10938-(0.000826s)+ (0.0000016ss)-(0.0002574a))-450
Percentage body fat=495/(1.089733-(0.0009245s)+(0.0000025ss)-(0.0000979a)-450
The formula variables include
S= sum of three skinfold mm
The skinfold measurements are widely used in assessing body composition. The costs of the test are less. The method is easier than other body composition techniques like hydrostatic weighing
A 3 point skin fold calculator is a common technique used to determine body fat composition.
The procedure is cheap and tends to be accurate when compared to other methods.
