US Navy Method for Males

US Navy Method for Males is a fast and easy calculation with circumferrences to test your body fat using tape. All measurements should be done in cm,measured to the nearest mm.

  • Circumferrence measured from the inferior to the larynx with the tape sloping slightly downward to the front.
  • Circumferrence measured at the level of the navel. This is not the minimal width.
  • Measured without shoes in cm,you may round or be exact(use decimal points).
