Body Fat % Calculator

Post by Topher72086 » Tue Dec 20, 2011 3:41 pm

Hello,

As I conducted a skin fold assessment and plugged in the numbers to the 7 site as well as the 3 site calculator for a male, there was a 6% discrepancy between the two formulas. The 7 site revealed a 15% body fat percentage, where the 3 site revealed a 9 % body fat percentage for my client. Any explanation would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

Can you give the numbers you plugged in?

I punched in some test numbers and both gave similar numbers for me and they were consistent with this site which uses the same method: http://www.free-online-calculator-use.c ... ators.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

For others, the link to the Exrx calculator is http://exrx.net/Calculators/BodyComp.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
