The objective of this study was to compare and correlate the Portable Ultra Sound (US) measuring technique to the skinfold measuring technique (SF) to estimate body fat percentage (%F) in young adults. Sixty military were evaluated, all males, divided in two groups: Group 1 (normal) composed by 30 military with Body Mass Index (BMI) until 24.99 kg/m2 and Group 2 (overweight) composed by 30 military with BMI >; 25 kg/m2. Weight, height, skinfolds and ultrasound were measured in 9 points (triceps… CONTINUE READING
