WATCH A VIDEO where Michael talks about body fat percentage.
PERCENT BODY FAT MEASUREMENTS
A waist measurement is made at the level of the navel (umbilicus or belly button) parallel to the ground. The second girth measurement is neck circumference, measured just below the adam’s apple with a slight downward tilt (front slightly lower than back). The neck circumference is subtracted from the waist and that figure is used along with height to determine body fat percentage from the table.
Measurements are made to the nearest half inch and rounded up for the neck and rounded down for both waist and hips.
