Good article on how to do a 7-point body fat pinch test.

Later today my new FatTrack PRO Digital Body Fat Caliper will be here. Tonight I’ll practice with them a bit and then obtain what is hopefully a far more accurate representation of my current body fat levels. Lisa is going to have to practice with me, because the 7-point and 9-point tests have pinch locations around back and can not be done solo. From what I’ve read, the 7-point and 9-point tests are very comparable in terms of accuracy, so it will be interesting to see how my own results compare. I’m hoping that’s the case, as using the caliper’s built-in 7-point test would save me some time.

I found a good article (with helpful photographs) that clearly shows the seven pinch locations for a 7-point body fat test. It’s in PDF format. It’s definitely worth a look if you are curious about testing your body fat levels with a caliper and are not sure how or where to pinch. Check it out here.

I’m starving – time to eat! Have a great day. 🙂
