Underwater Weighing Technique

December 30th, 2009 · No Comments · Anthropometry

Ryan performing underwater weighing (hydro-static weighing) to determine body density and subsequently percentage body fat. See how he blows all the air out of his lungs. This is a necessary step as it can affect his buoyancy and therefore the weight measured in the water.

A video of a lecture on calculating percentage body fat from skinfold measurements. It is not very exciting, but gives a practical example of using the equations to calculate body fat levels. See more about the Jackson & Pollock body density equations.

Lower and Mid Body Skinfold Landmarks

December 30th, 2009 · No Comments · Anthropometry

Dr Exercise demonstrates the landmarks used for the common skinfold meaurements of the lower and mid body sections. See also his other videos. He uses a skeleton to demonstrate the boney landmarks to help you understand what points of the body to use to accurately and consistently measure the skinfold meaurements. It is a long video but well worth having a look.

Dr Exercise give the low down on the landmarks used for the common skinfold meaurements of the upper body. He uses a skeleton to demonstrate the boney landmarks to help you understand what points of the body to use to accurately and consistently measure the skinfold meaurements.

Demonstration of Skinfold Sites

December 30th, 2009 · No Comments · Anthropometry

This is a clear demonstration of the skinfold measurement sites: biceps, pectoralis, iliac crest, abdominal, triceps and subscapular. The assessor is using a Slim Guide Skinfold Caliper which provide good accurate measurements of skinfolds. It is best to mark all measurement sites prior to testing, though experienced examiners like the one here here can go by feel and perform the measurements more quickly.
