1. why do we measure body composition?
• -to know health risk
• -see stored energy
• -fitness/performance
2. What is the body composed of?
• Fat
• Bones
• Organs
• Water
• Muscle/connective tissue
3. 2 human body components
what are they for?
FFM-fat free mass 1.1 --> 0%bf

FM-fat mass .9 --> 100%bf

measuring body density
4. 2 kinds of body composition. purpose?

what are they best indicators of?

how accurate?
• hydrostatic weighing
• skin-fold test
• estimates density

good indicator of fat, bad for health

2%
5. BMI
what is it best indicator of? why?
• good for health, bad for fat
• only measures your "size"
• weight divided by height
6. what do you do and what information can you get from/with a skin-fold test? how accurate?
• -measure skin thickness

• 3.5%
7. how would you generally go about a hydrostatic weighing? think about what kind of data you need
• age, height, weight, and residual volume.
• get the weight of the chair in the water, the temp/density of the water. you take his water weight subtracted by the chair weight, for his actual weight in water.
• You need the density of the water, his in water weight, his outside water weight, and his residual volume to get his body fat %, to get his FM and FFM
8. Healthy body fat comp for men? women?
• Men
• low 5% norm 15% high 25%
• Women
• low 12% norm 23% high 32%
9. Healthy BMI for all

• normal 18.5-24.9
• elevated 25-29.9
• high over 30
10. how do you get the body's density and fat % with the skin-fold test?
take the average of the 7 areas and age to put into equation

take that density to put into % bf equation
