This guide tells how to use a skinfold caliper and how to choose the right test.

Slimguide skinfold caliperCalipers
First of all you need a skinfold caliper. Many different qualities are available on the market today. Our recommandation is, that if you need research grade quality, you should go for the Harpenden skinfold caliper or the Lange skinfold caliper ($300-$400). If you just need a good caliper at an affordable price, we recommend the Slim Guide caliper ($20-$30).

 

Harpenden skinfold caliperFormulas
Currently we are providing the Durnin and Womersley formula , which is suitable for most purposes and the Slaugther formula for children. Later more protocols will follow.

 

Conducting the measurements
It is important that you practice and get experienced with the measurements in order to achieve a high reliability in your measurements.

measuring skinfold1. When using the caliper you gently pinch a skinfold with your thumb and index finger.
2. 1-2 cm aside from your fingers you place the measuring tips of the caliper.
3. Release the caliper and wait 1-2 seconds before you make the reading on the calipers scale.
4. Repeat an additional 2 times at the same spot. Use the average of the 3 readings.

Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really
make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your
theme. Bless you

In 2019, a $16.2 million prize went unclaimed
for three weeks when the South Island winner quietly came to terms with the win ahead of claiming their prize.

Have you ever considered about including a little bit
more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
But think of if you added some great pictures or videos to give
your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and
videos, this site could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field.

Great blog!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could
add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some
time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy
reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
