Purpose The purpose of this lab was to understand the scientific principles behind the composition of bodyweight as well as the differences between overweight and over fat. Using various types of bodyweight and body composition analyses the lab allowed for understanding to be gained about the differences in body composition between genders as well as the strengths and weaknesses of the different tests used. Also learned in the lab was the application and interpretation of bodyweight and body composition results and the procedures for measuring and calculating BMI, girths, skinfolds, percent fat, bioelectrical impedance, fat mass, fat free mass, ideal bodyweight and hydrostatic weighing. Results (1) a. See data section for data sheet. b. Of the four percent body fat values the most accurate estimation was given by the bioelectrical impedance test. All the other methods of testing required the help of another person for measurement as well as some basic calculation in order to derive results leaving open the possibility for human error. The bioelectrical impedance test was

    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.
