Visual Calculators to estimate Bodyfat

It’s frustrating determining bodyfat percentage if tools like: Bodpod (air displacement),Hydrostatic testing (while fully underwater),Dexa Scan, bioelectrical (Omron), or Caliper estimation aren’t available. In those cases, visual calculators might help to give you a better idea of your bodyfat percentages.

Visual calculators won’t give you precise percentages and are only used as a guide.

Bodyfat percentage is basically the amount of bodyfat divided by overall bodyweight of an individual. Even with professional testing, it isn’t an exact science. Each person’s bodyfat distribution is different as is our body shapes, these images are guidelines only.

When searching online, I found many sites with photos used as a guides for this purpose. I’ve only shared images that use non personalized images, or those without a face as they seem less creepy.
