. (5) Fixed proportion of internal to externalfat There are two types of body composition prediction equations: (t b developed from relatively small, homogeneous (age, sex, state of training, fatness) samples. Their application is limited to that subsample. Example - Sloan, Yuhasz (2 U-ryg$ developed from large, heterogeneous samples. equations have a wider application in terms of age, and fatness. However, these equations should be used cautiously with unique populations such as extremely obese individuals and professionalfootball players. Example - J.gfl5So,U.,,a,!"9*F_.9!lgqk, DS1j.g.S*W.g[J_e_[F*Le.y* P_gHF*o,_1,-W€ng"." Even when the correct equation is used and the measurements are performed correctly, prediction of percent fat from skinfold measurements
