Hello fat measuring experts!
Here's my question.
It says to basically pinch some fat and inch above your right hip bone. The thing is, I don't have a lot of excess fat there. But if ya move in one inch toward the old belly button, then yes, there is some solid pinching material!
So should I just take an average of the two areas? I don't want to record a fat measurement that's false either way.
Hey there. There are other methods that use more points than just above the hip bone...perhaps google it...I know there are some formulas that use up to 5-6 points...like the tricep area...belly, quads, and a few others. Maybe try that?
I use the Accu-Measure calipers. With that device, I measure about 1 inch above my hip bone. I measure 3 times and take the average. Now, realize, the AccuMeasure is a plastic measuring device which can get worn down (I suppose) and may not give the "most" accurate results. With that being said, I would still get one of these for my use. Using this is better than getting on the scale and getting frustrated... Just my opinion.
