By monitoring the changes of your lean body weight, you will be able to tell whether or not you are replacing fat with muscle. Lean body weight can be found by subtracting your body weight with your body fat weight. You body fat weight is calculated by multiplying your weight with your body fat percentage. Now I will give you an accepted equation that will give you a quick and easy Idea what your lean weight is and your approx Bodyfat. Go ahead and do the math then calculate with your calipers and let me know how the two match up.
A- multiply your body weight ( nude ) by 1.082
B- add to the results to 94.42
C- multiply your waist girth ( across your belly button) by 4.15
D- subtract this number from the number obtained in B to obtain your lean weight ( fat free weight)
E- subtract your fat -free weight ( obtained in D) from your total body weight
F- multiply that number by 100
G- divide that number by your total body weight to obtain your body-fat %
pretty easy mine comes pretty close to my impedence scale, but I like this one better because it gives me a static ( steady) reading for progress tracking.
Women yours is a little more involved ( more steps, thiers more variables with the female body)
A- Multiply your body weight ( nude) by 0.732
B- add 8.987 ( save this number)
C- Measure your wrist ( at its widest point) then divide that number 3.14 (pi) to determine your wrists diameter ( save this number )
D- multiply your abdominal circumference ( across the belly button) by 0.157 ( save this number)
E- multiply your hip circumference ( measured at its widest point) by 0.249 ( save this number 0
F- multiply your forearm ( measured at its widest point ) by 0.434 ( save this number)
G- Add the numbers obtained in steps B and C ( save this number )
H- subtract the number obtained in step D from that obtained i... read more
