After reading Norcross’ articles on Body Composition for Beginners, I wanted an easy way to do the calculations as described by the formulas in his articles. I checked out the links for the BF% calculators, but I thought they were garbage. They didn’t look good and they weren’t dynamic as there were four different calculators for Male 3 and 7 site, and Female 3 and 7 site. Just not very practical and horrible design.

I decided to design a new calculator for the T-maggers. I emailed it to T-mag hoping they would hook me up with a little something for my efforts, but I never heard back. Anyway, no big deal, I’ve learned a ton from T-mag and you guys.

In my opinion, the calculator is pretty self-explanatory, but here is how to use it.

- Select your sex.
- Enter your age.
- Enter your measurements (in mm), 3 per site. Each site MUST have all 3 fields completed.
- For a 3-site calculation, complete the 3-site portion of the form.
- For a 7-site calculation, complete the entire form.
- Click on the Calculate button.

Please post any bugs you find or any suggestions you have. FYI, this was tested with IE 6.0 and uses Javascript.

I hope you guys and girls find this to be useful.
