Estimating bodyfat in children by this method is more valid than using BMI or Ponderal index.

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite
justification seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider
worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail
upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

mm, Morten Z...I was just doing that... looking for the formula and found this site. I do not have net access, where I will be doing the measurements. Therefore I needed the formula.

please send formula

with Slaughter formula there is a small clause you are missing. If the sum of skinfold (tricep and subscapular) is more than 35 mm the formula changes to
Fat (%) = 0.546 (tricep + subsc) + 9.7 otherwise is fine.
Thanks for this great Site
