Skinfolds

Equipment Options

  • Caliper
  • Pen and paper to record results
  • Assistant/Training partner (recommended)

Procedure

To begin the Rookie Me athlete must remove their clothing and complete this test in their underwear. The equipment of choice for conducting this procedure is a Caliper.

  • The Caliper is used to measure the skinfolds in the designated areas on the body as required.
  • Pinch the skin in the desired area and use the Caliper to calculate a result.
  • Aim to conduct all measurements on the same side of the body – so that the results are consistent.

Nine sites to be tested:

Test Skinfold Test Area (Site) Score
1 Abdominal SKINFOLD TEST AREA  
2 Biceps SKINFOLD TEST AREA  
3 Calf SKINFOLD TEST AREA  
4 Chest SKINFOLD TEST AREA  
5 Midaxillary SKINFOLD TEST AREA

7 Suprailiac SKINFOLD TEST AREA
