Skin folds test #4

Yesterday I had my first skin folds test in three years! I’m now an estimated 7.2% body fat. The detailed results:

Measurement 23-Feb-14 13-April-17 % change
Weight (kg) 81.6 75.0 -8.1
Triceps sf (mm) 5.3 7.0 +32.1
Subscapular sf (mm) 9.5 7.7 -18.8
Biceps sf (mm) 3.0 2.3 -23.3
Iliac crest sf (mm) 20.5 9.8 -52.2
Supraspinale sf (mm) 11.0 7.1 -35.5
Abdominal sf (mm) 15.5 9.7 -37.4
Front thigh sf (mm) 8.3 6.8 -18.1
Medial calf sf (mm) 7.5 5.7 -24.0
Sum of 8 (mm) 80.5 55.9 -30.6
% fat (Yuhasz) 8.6 7.2 -16.3

So what’s happened since my previous skin folds test? I’ve changed my workouts from swim/bike/run to just run. However, I suspect the biggest contributor to my loss of weight (and subsequent loss in body fat) is due to the orthodontic braces I’ve been sporting for last two years!
