Anthropometry (Skinfolds)

What I can expect?

The process involves taking skinfold measurements from 8 sites. It also requires taking some girth measurements. During the process each site is marked with a pen and either 2 or 3 measurements will be taken.

What Should I wear:

Clients should wear shorts and you may need to remove some clothing to take the subscapular measurement. However usually measurements can be taken if the client is wearing a sports bra.

What measurements are taken?

There are 8 skinfold measurements

  • Bicep
  • Tricep
  • Thigh
  • Calf
  • Abdominal
  • Subscapular (below scapula)
  • Illiac Crest (lateral hip)
  • Supraspinale (anterior hip)

Other measurements taken are Height, Weight, BIcep (relaxed and tensed), Waist, Hip, and Calf girths.

How long does it take?

The whole process takes about 30 mins

And how much would it cost?

The cost is $75 which entitles you to 3 sessions which can be completed at a time based on your needs
It’s important to note that having skinfolds taken is usually something that is done periodically and is used mostly to look at the changes in lean muscle mass and fat mass across time. It is most widely used across the athletic population.
