The Formula Parillo is used to calculate the percentage of body fat and is considered simple because it does not differentiate between sex (men and women) or age and can be used for any type of population. However, due to its simplicity it tends to have a good margin of error and inaccurate results. 9 measurements of skinfolds must be taken to perform this formula. You can see the guide for taking skinfold measures Here.

This formula helps to provide a fairly accurate representation of an individual's body fat percentage, is often used more for the general population and is simpler to perform compared to the Jackson and Pollock 7, since in this only the measurements of 4 skin folds are taken and becomes more accurate than the Jackson and Pollock 3. This well-performed formula makes it one of the most reliable body fat percentage tests. A skinfold caliper is required for its realization. You can look at the guide to taking skinfold measures here.

The Jackson and Pollock 7 formula are one of the most accurate to calculate the percentage of body fat according to measurements of different skinfolds with a skinfold caliper. This formula differentiates between men and women, considers age and has been used mainly for young athletes and with moderate physical activity, although due to its precision it has also been used in the general population. It has a high complexity of realization since it is developed with measurements of 7 folds.   History The formula was developed in 1978 by Doctors Andrew Jackson and M. L. Pollock, researchers and scholars...

How to Measure % Body Fat Percentage from Skinfold What is a skinfold test? A skinfold test is used to monitor changes in body composition and to estimate body fat. The test can be used on all populations including children; reliable readings may be difficult to obtain on obese people. A trained tester pinches the skin with skinfold calipers to measure the thickness of skin and adipose tissue (fat). Here are two of the main scientific scales used to calculate the caliper measurements: The Durnin & Womersley formula is ideal for general population - You have to take four (4) site...
