View Full Version : Is there any way to proxy calipers with a measuring tape?

I know it won't be really accurate but would I be able to do something with a measuring tape (one of the fabric ones like tailors use) so that I could get a reasonable measurement-based approximation of my BF rather than just visually guessing?

Generally speaking when does it become unlikely that you won't look fat at a certain %? Like would it be really unusual to not look fat at 170/20% (5'10") for example?
