Body fat - skinfold - YMCA

YMCA skinfold testThe YMCA skinfold body fat test is one one the most widely tests used for estimating body fat percentage. The advantage of this test is that you can choose to include or exclude the thigh measurement as this is often difficult to measure accurately.


  1. Measure skinfold in millimeters as indicated on the illustration and enter values.
  2. If the thigh measurement is a problem - either due to difficulties in getting a well-defined skinfold - or due to clothing, you can exclude this from the test with only minor effects on accuracy.
  3. For further instructions see our guide "How to measure body fat with a skinfold caliper"

The YMCA skinfold test is based on the Jackson and Pollock four sites formulas. Experience has shown that the thigh measurement is sometimes difficult to obtain and therefore an option to use only three sites is given.

napanood ko po yung sayaw ni alden para skin d malaswa nasa isip
lng ng nanonood kya naging malaswa it depends on how you feel while watching the dance
# maganda nga pagkakasayaw ni alden yung facial expression niya walang kalaswaan kaya maganda ang
dating habang sumasayaw sya naexecute niya ng maayos yung pinapagawa sa kanya
nandun na sa nanood yun kung anong tumatakbo sa utak niya kung bkt sya nalaswaan ibig sabihin yun kasi ang iniisip nyo kaya yun din ang nagregister sa utak nyo in short mga malalaswa kasi kayong magisip lawakan nyo yung utak nyo para
tama ang magrehistro sa isip nyo hope you understand

Perhaps I'm missing something but the red and blue colors appear to me to be reversed.
