View Full Version : How to measure w/tough skin

Hey all,

I bought come calipers today and I'm having problems getting accurate readings mainly because I have tough skin and it's very challenging to 'pinch' the right amount of skin to get the reading.

I've done 4 separate readings and I'm fluctuating between 17% - 23%. I know for a fact that I am well over 30% as I've been away from the gym for some time and I've never been under 28% when using the underwater measuring techniques.

Does anybody else have this problem, and if so, how can I get accurate measurements???
