Does anybody know of an online calculator or even the formula for a three measurement caliper test? The locations the trainer used was 'abdomen, subscapular, and triceps'. Most online calculators that reference the three location measurement use chest, thigh, and abdomen.
Yes, is was an impromptu session at the local high school. She didn't have her computer. Upon further research I think the three locations she measured were based on the NWCA's (wrestling) guidelines. That's the only place I could find on the 'net that used: triceps, abs, subscapular. Of course, I don't have a login to their OPC (calculator site).
I figured out you were using measurements sites per the NWCA guidelines and discovered they use these locations because the NCAA does. From there I was able to find a link to this book's page that references wrestlers and found the formulas.
The number I came up with correlates with the NAVY method of height, age, waist, and neck measurements (there are online calculators for this - it is what the military uses for estimations).
