A New Specific Equation for the Assessment of Body Fat Percentage in Adolescent Soccer Players: 1983 Board #135 June 2, 2: 00 PM - 3: 30 PM.

Abstract

Acknowledgments Conclusion Results Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine whether the commonly used anthropometric equations or a new developed specific equation are adequate to estimate BF% in adolescent soccer players. Among the different methods of calculating body-fat percentage (BF%), the use of anthropometric equations is the most economic and accessible. Furthermore, several studies have used anthropometry in young soccer players1. However, it has not been studied yet which anthropometric equation is the most accurate for estimating BF% in children and adolescent soccer players.
