Body fat calculator: Use the 3 point system if are testing on yourself and dont have help.




  1. I measured all the three parts as you did correctly. And i used the link you put in the description, I ended up geting .96% bodyfat as my result. Im pretty sure im nowhere near that much nor do i want to be lol what happened ? did i measure wrong or is it the site? Im pretty sure i measured everything correctly.

  2. My coworkers laughed when I told them I was going to shed pounds with Fat Blast Factor, but then they saw the results. Do a search on google for Fat Blast Factor to see their reaction.

  3. Which site is it that you have on your computer? The website you have listed only uses the 7 skin fold technique. Thanks.

  4. @Devin Moore- the measures that you said…4, 4.5 and so on..what were the units you measured it in??…cms, mm or inches??

  5. Have you experienced Trim Fat Maximizer? (Google it) It is a quick and easy way for you to burn up fat fast.

  6. “i just don’t want to bulk i want to build muscle without a bulk” that makes no sense. You either want to build muscle (bulk) or not.

  7. At 5:35 I see your numbers 4, 8 and 5. Are those numbers in inches? You do have the inch button highlighted. If so, where do you see those numbers?

  8. if you dudes require to get ripped immediately without spending a single additional minute in the gym, then you really want to look closely this video tutorial SIXPP.COM

    He was asking too many questions and he was asking them too quickly. They were stacking up in my head like loaves in the factory where Uncle Terry works

  9. Thanks for the instructions on the fat caliper usage! … I’ve had this sucker for years, but I forgot how to use it … and thanks for the website also, looks like that will be useful … I’m at 16 % bf too — looking forward to checking out your transformation vid!

  10. Depending on your self esteem either once a day (the same time each day), three times a week, or once a week. So, if you can handle the truth of your actual fat percentage, then I’d say do it every day after a workout. So if you do LEGS on Wed, then Thursday morn when you get up or before you go to bed, test your bf — stay consistent with what time of day you do it, like Devin says. If you’ve been fat all your life and are new to workout, maybe once each Friday. Hope that helps!

  11. I don’t think that site is too accurate. It’s giving me an estimate of 8,29% whilst I full on know that it should be around 15%. The chart that accumeasure uses with a 1 point measurement is more accurate than this method for some reason.

  12. dude, you are using accumeasure bodyfat calipers which are designed to measure one site… the navel area.  Then you check the accumeasure chart http://www.accumeasurefitness.com/charts.html for your bodyfat result.  

    For the multiple skin fold site version you are trying you need another type of caliper.  Your results will be way off.  I made the same mistake by the way about 3 years ago.  Got my bodyfat measured through hydrostatic weighing (the most accurate way to date) and realised I was using my calipers wrong for 2 years!  

  13. Devin Can you use the accu measure on only one site or can you use it on multiple site

  14. It not accurate for measuring your exact body fat percentages as a couple of pro’s measured me about 4-6% less than dexa, But its a indication if you get leaner of gain more fat. I have really good experience with my Tanita BC-601. It gave me the exact same score as dexa. The Skulpt is reasonably accurate. The skulpt is more accurate than calipers though.
