My most popular Tighten + Tone Tuesday episode of all time (so far) has been one I made last year called How to Calculate your Body Fat Percentage at Home.
You don’t need a fancy scale or to submerge your body in water to get your stats.
All you need is a measuring tape, to know your gender, and a scale (if you’re a guy).
Some of my viewers disagreedwith me on that last part.They felt like they also needed a degree in math to figure out their numbers.
I’ll be honest, calculating your body fat percentage at home is a little bit a decent math workout.
I probably should have been up front about that!
And likely should have included the math in the first video.
But, I’m a big believer in the phrase “better late than never!”and hope you are too 🙂
So without further ado, I present your Fitness Math Lesson!
How to Calculate Your Body Fat Percentage:
I hope you found the video helpful!
I know I had a lot of fun reliving my days as a teacher. That’s right, in addition to having a fitness career, I was a Biology, 8th Grade Science, and 8th Grade Health Teacher (I even created my own curriculum!)…it’s why I created the Teacher’s Tone Up Group Fitness Program. I still have a soft spot for teachers 🙂 .
Now that you know how to do the math (you did watch the video right?!), I have a little gift for you.
