How many skinfold sites do you use?

Ab Skinfold SiteIf 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.

Within reason, the more skinfold sites you use will make the test more accurate, though there are often other considerations such as time.
