body fat on a male great was you over a surprisingly and now we’re doing a video on how to measure body fat on a female using skinfold measurements there’s other ways to do it you can use body of immersion in the water which is one of the more underwater version accurate accurate right so but it’s expensive than they have the bod pod but the other one they have is the those electronic body fat testers and those are unreliable right easy to use but there are unreliable so this is the most reliable way that’s inexpensive this is the sequoia marina soft sequoia fitness 4,000 body fat caliper i got $MONEY on amazon for 1195 I think it’s excellent it got four . three out of five reviews for analysis there’s like hundreds of reviews sharing and the the review a few negatives I saw her just somebody had trouble using a little why but abdominal I like about best is that spring-loaded brand which means it’s going to be take away bye-bye assignment it’s going to give burning foods the same amount to squeeze every how to lose belly fat in 3 days so it’s going to be reliable right now on a male and a female what we do is three measurements because different people tend to burning exercises deposit their body fat different areas and sold by doing three measurements how to lose we get a more accurate of your overall body and three measurements are different locations yeah male to the female naturally right exactly and the reason you’re going to do this in the first place even is is you want to see get a baseline where you’re at now and then as you work out you want to see are you losing the weight that you’re losing is losing muscle or using body fat sure anything you gain weight you gain muscle which is good in 3 days and you might be losing body fat gain weight like one way to reminder diet they gain weight they’re getting depressed and if they did this they might be losing body fat and gaining muscle team analyzed right so that’s a good thing so today we have Lonni our camera woman is going to come out here and not your life so you can flip that all right and what was the way we do it is we always have the person stand and we do three measurements with the woman there like so different than a man the first one is the basically the super iliac measurement and by the way again what I would i recommend with this as I did on the mail is to actually mark the areas with a pen or marker that way if you because what you should do is you really should do you do all three measurements and then you probably want to repeat all three measurements and maybe even do it a third time and take the average of the three if you really want to get if you really want to be accurate here so all right the first one listen you know what i want to show the second one first the reason i do that let’s come up over the camera here and it doesn’t matter what or yeah doesn’t matter i want to make sure we can see it we see that yeah what you gonna do is here is her little let’s turn this way here’s the X where we’re going to market halfway between the shoulder and the elbow what you want to do is pinch about two or three inches of skin and bring it together like that and this is a vertical one and right below the pinch about a quarter-inch you’re going to go ahead and put the calipers and let them squeeze on the skin can you pull that down oh sure this yeah that’s better because I’m again to three inches squeeze and I’m forming a mountaineer and halfway between the top of the mountain and the base of the mountain that’s where I put the calipers so right below the pinch and squeeze and like that and you can see this is giving me a number of 14 you see that red turn out good ok go all right let’s come back over here now alright still doing okay you

her body fat is only twenty-three percent for Oklahoma that’s really God 13 excellent i’d have to look that up Lonnie but I’m guessing that’s really on the low percentage for for female so excellent
