Purpose Body mass index is a measure of relative body weight correlating with body fat. It is calculated by dividing total body weight by the square of body height. Also, assessing percent body composition involves estimating percent body fat. Through this lab, I will determine my target body weight from Target BMI and Target Body Fat Percentages. Methods Complete this lab if the results of Lab 6.1 indicate that a change in body composition would benefit your health and well-being. Equipment: Calculator, pencil, and paper Determine percent body fat and calculate BMI. Keep track of height and weight. Instructions: Target Body Weight from Target BMI Use the chart to find the target body weight that corresponds to your target BMI. Find your height in the left column and then move across the row until you find the weight that corresponds to your target BMI.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
