My body fat for the last 12 months

(versión en español: pinchar aquí)

For the last year I’ve been measuring my body fat using a caliper. The measuring procedure is quite simple, although you need the assistance from another person: you grab a skinfold with the fingers and use the caliper to measure its width. There are different ways of doing the measure, from using one single skinfold to seven or more points in your body. I considered six points, repeating each measure at least twice and averaging the results (see).
