Portland Personal Trainer | The Types of Body Fat Testing

There are three main types of body fat testing: 1. Hydrostatic Weighing - Also called the dunk tank. This is the most accurate, but time consuming and more expensive2. Bioelectric Impedance Analysis - Hand held device or a scale that has the technology it built in (quick and easy- needs to have correct inputs)3. Skinfold  Measurements - Use of calipers measuring 3 to 7 sites (some companies use the Skindex).I will be posting more about body fat, so stay tuned for more information. Above is just the basic types.Thanks,Kisar
