First of all you need a skinfold caliper. Many different qualities are available on the market today. Our recommandation is, that if you need research grade quality, you should go for the Harpenden skinfold caliper or the Lange skinfold caliper ($300-$400). If you just need a good caliper at an affordable price, we recommend the Slim Guide caliper ($20-$30).

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is important and everything.
Nevertheless think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with images and video clips,
this website could definitely be one of the very best in its niche.

Excellent blog!
