I know this is a silly question and that it's more accurate if you get this done with the caliper things. I was just wondering if it's possible to get the body fat percentage from using only your weight and the measurements from your waist, hips, wrist, and forearm?
Again, I know that it's better to get something like this done at the gym or wherever else you can get it done. I was just wondering if it could be somewhat accurate. It would be nice to think that the things I listed above would give an accurate picture but I think it's missing some things. Based on what I listed above, I have a body fat % of 26.78. I think, in reality, it is higher than that because I am holding most of the unnecessary fat in my abs and inner thighs. It doesn't help that I'm top heavy. My body fat % is definitely lower now than it was in August 2011 (when I had the body fat % done). Back then it was something like 96 lbs of lean body mass and the rest was fat (~60 lbs.). If it helps, I was using an app that I found on my phone. Yes, it is free.
I am just curious if you guys think that it can give some perspective even if it isn't 100% accurate.
