Fitness Monitors : Body Fat Caliper Demonstration

Weight Loss Tip: Older people should increase water intake. An older adult needs to drink at least 8 cups of water a day. Your body tends to become dehydrated more quickly that that of someone younger, and sometimes the signs of dehydration aren't quickly obvious. Also, try to avoid caffeine, as it can make your body lose water.

Body fat calipers are an easy way to measure body fat percentage. Learn how to use body fat calipers with health tips from a fitness instructor in this free fitness monitor video.

  1. what if you lean backwards and the thing can’t grab your skin?? seems like
    a stupid way to measure fat

  2. He demonstrates for chest so we know how to pinch the skin, and then he
    shows all the rest of the areas where u pinch.

  3. She can’t read, that is 4mm not 1/10th. Which makes her 15.4% body fat if
    I can read the 108p video, which is still crazy low for a girl.

  4. I need one of those, it’d be useful – tho at first I know it’ll give me a
    high reading, but I guess you gotta start somewhere.

  5. OK first off she looks AMAZING, and thank you I have this one and the
    Instructions were confusing.

  6. Thank you, that was helpful. However I have seen other videos which state
    that measurement should be vertical. Can you comment on that? I can only
    manage to get a measurement at a diagonal or like you did, horizontally.

  7. It’s the most accurate, practical, and east method to estimate your body
    fat percentage
    more accurate than Bio-Electric Impedance Analysis (Omron) and less acurate
    but more practical than Underwater Weighing

  8. Short and simple video. I have had this for years but never use it. I have
    always thought it was a useless piece of garbage. An article on fat loss
    brought me here so maybe I will start using it.
