WHAT IS IT?
A skinfold assessment involves measuring the thickness of skin at seven sites across the body. The sum of these seven sites will determine your body fat percentage. Sum of skinfolds has a strong (~0.9) correlation to body fat percentage.
WHY DO I NEED IT?
For health reasons, it is important to keep your body fat percentages within normal ranges to avoid unnecessary health risks such as diabetes and heart disease.
For performance reasons, a skinfold assessment is a practical, non-invasive way to keep track of body fat percentage to ensure your training and diet are on point. Fat is just empty weight we have to carry; if we can work towards and maintain optimum levels of body fat, you will essentially gain free speed in training.
