Preferred body composition test method - Jun Hong

Favourite method to measure accurate body composition: Hydrostatic Weighing

It is the most accurate compared to Bod Pod, Skinfold measurements, Bioelectrical Impedence Analysis and Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. It has a specific and accurate formula to calculate the amount of fats in our body, even though it can be quite uncomfortable. Other methods of measuring body composition are less reliable. The only factor that can directly affect the measurement is the amount of air in the lungs, which can be calculated.
