Body fat - skinfold - YMCA

YMCA skinfold testThe YMCA skinfold body fat test is one one the most widely tests used for estimating body fat percentage. The advantage of this test is that you can choose to include or exclude the thigh measurement as this is often difficult to measure accurately.


  1. Measure skinfold in millimeters as indicated on the illustration and enter values.
  2. If the thigh measurement is a problem - either due to difficulties in getting a well-defined skinfold - or due to clothing, you can exclude this from the test with only minor effects on accuracy.
  3. For further instructions see our guide "How to measure body fat with a skinfold caliper"

The YMCA skinfold test is based on the Jackson and Pollock four sites formulas. Experience has shown that the thigh measurement is sometimes difficult to obtain and therefore an option to use only three sites is given.

Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and
tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple
ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off
topic but I had to share it with someone!
