Exercising Tips : How to Measure Body Fat

Weight Loss Tip: The best tip of all for weight loss is to eat less and exercise more. Kicking up your overall metabolism is a good way to make your body burn more energy, and eating fewer calories will help by making your body burn the ones it already has, in the form of fat.

Body fat percentage can be measured by using a caliper to calculate excess skin at designated skin fold locations, or by using a body composition scanner, which measures body fat through electro magnetics. Determine body fat percentages with tips from a personal trainer in this free video on exercising.

  1. Dude why would I take ANY advice from this lady about ANYTHING, ESPECIALLY
    being fat!

  2. Once you know the body fat in lbs you can calculate your percentage body
    fat. It’s relatively simple math once you know how many lbs of body fat you
    have and your total weight. But then again, simple math is not simple
    enough for some. : ) ~

  3. Perhaps because she “is a professional bodybuilder and a fitness and
    nutrition expert.”

  4. shut up u gaylliance, i sign in everyday just to give ur comments thumbs
    down, its all about the horde!

  5. expert village sucks at everything! why did she demonstrate pinching the
    fat just above your knee when that isnt a testing site? and she didn’t
    explain which site you are replacing when you take the measurement of the
    mans chest in the male 3 site. expert village should change its name to ”
    the undereducated population village”

  6. or you can do it the why the navy does it and measure you neck then waist
    and sub you neck from you waist and get an estimate close to your body fat
    within a 3-4 point range

  7. i had the digital caliper and it broke in a few uses. very low quality. I
    just ordered the regular plastic kind so it won’t break as easily. cost
    only 6 bux

  8. ok heres a tip for everyone. if your taking exercise advice from someone
    that isnt in shape…well…there ya go…dont..

  9. @Familyguy1800000 If you actually watched the video, she wasn’t talking
    about any exercise.

  10. @Alundra321 she did what is called OVERTRAINING. that is why you shouldnt
    do it…you’ll look like that.

  11. HEY! This womans trying to help you fat disgusting people sitting siitng at
    your computers all day to lose some of your weight, and maybe get laid one
    day, and all you can do is give her shit about the way she looks. You
    people make me SICK.

  12. @MegaUltra17 lol u mad? Hahaha you’re on YouTube too, and you’re probably
    some fat old faggot who thinks this bitch is hot because you are too old
    and ugly to get anything else. Oh and I’m sitting at around 7% body fat and
    190 pounds, so yeah – you fail at life.

  13. She is cute. Maybe she is ugly, but she looks so kind person. Look at her
    smile at the end. “She’s beautiful in her way, ’cause God makes no
    mistakes” 🙂

  14. BMI/Body Fat scales ARE NOT ACCURATE! Do not trust them! ONLY way to
    accurately measure your body fat is with a caliper.

  15. this just in, using body calipers are suppose to be done on the right side
    of the body only. this video is void. 😛
