Body Fat Calculator for Females is a bodyfat calculation based on the averages taken from US Navy Method,3-folds by Jackson-Pollock-Ward,and 7-folds by Jackson-Pollock-Ward formulas. All circumferrence measurements should be done in cm,measured to the nearest mm using tape. All skinfold measurements should be made on the right side of the body in mm using a body fat caliper. Body fat caliper should be placed 1 cm away from thumb and finger,perpendicular to skinfold,and halfway between crest and base of fold. Pinch should be maintained with the body fat caliper for 1 to 2 seconds before reading the caliper. Take duplicate measurements at each site,allow time for skin to regain normal texture and thickness.
