Preparation for assessment

When measuring body composition through skin folds make sure to wear shorts and a t-shirt so that sites are easily excess able. Skin folds should not be taken after exercise because of the transfer of fluids that occur in the body. In order for results to be valid and reliable the test should be administered by a trained professional. It is also suggested that the same person take the measurements each time in order to account for testing error.
