How many skinfold sites do you use?
If you conduct or have previously conducted skinfold testing, add your vote below to the number of skinfold sites you use in your assessment. The number of skinfold sites used by health professionals varies greatly, as the results show. The number used would depend on the time available, the skills of the tester, and the norm tables that are used to compare to others. Within reason, the more skinfold sites you use will make the test more accurate, though there are often other considerations such as time.
