How to Use Our Body Fat Calipers
When taking a skinfold the basic idea is to “pinch and pull.” Attempt to separate the fat tissue from the surrounding tissue with a good pinch, and then pull away from the body just slightly.
Once you feel like you have a good pinch, perform these steps:
Place the calipers about 1 cm to the side of your fingers.
Press on the serrated thumb pad next to the word “press” until the two arrows line up.
Note the measurement on the little scale to the right of the arrows. The hashes are in increments of two. That means one mark lower than 20 is 18.
Release the pinch and repeat all of these steps several times for all sites.
