Hi, I'm Kristen Rzasa, owner of InterPlay Health, and host on FTNS, world's first fitness radio. Today, I'm here at the Jazzercise Fitness Center in Stamford, Connecticut to talk about calculating the body fat for your lower part of your body. Well, body fat is, actually, an indication of the total fat in your body. So, it can't be isolated to a particular area of your body. For example, if you weigh 140 pounds and you have 10 percent body fat, that means you have 14 pounds of fat and 126 pounds of muscle, organs, bone, blood, etc. The most accurate way to calculate your body fat percentage has to be done by a medical professional. But today I'm going to share three easy things that you could do at home. First, a body fat caliper. This takes a measurement of a skin fold of different areas of your body, like your arms or your abs, and then we'll calculate the body fat percentage for you. Second, you can try a scale, which includes a body fat calculation. Simply enter your height, your age, sex, and activity level, and a harmless current will go through your body and give you your weight and body fat percentage. Finally, you can always use the standard mathematical equation. You can find this at many different sites online, such as ACE, the American Council on Exercise. Plug in your information there, and it will calculate your body fat percentage. And that's how you calculate body fat percentage in the lower body. I'm Kristen Rzasa, here at Jazzercise Fitness Center in Stamford, Connecticut.
