I just bought an Accumeasure 3000 fat caliper. The instructions say to simply measure the skinfold by the ab region and check the measurement in a chart.
Isn’t it more accurate to measure more sites? (like Triceps, Biceps, Thigh, etc…)
Also, does anyone have a link to equations that are used to calculate BF% once I have all the measurements?[/quote]
Sure multiple points of measurement are more accurate. I found that with a pair of traditional calipers the difference between a 3-point and a 7-point measurement was about 1-1.2% bf. The 3-point gave me a higher measurement. That’s mostly because I tend to pack on the blummer around the abdomen. 3-point measurements take from peck, abdomen and thigh.
