The Army Body Fat Calculator is a tool used by the United States Army to estimate the body fat percentage of its personnel. It is designed to assess the physical fitness and readiness of soldiers and ensure they meet the required standards set by the Army

Your body fat: Fill data to calculate

The calculator takes into account several factors such as height, neck circumference, waist circumference, and hip circumference for both men and women. These measurements are used to calculate the body fat percentage

The Army recognizes that body fat percentage is a more accurate measure of overall fitness and health than just weight alone. Soldiers are expected to maintain a certain level of body fat in order to meet the demands of their duties and perform effectively in combat situations

It's important to note that the calculator provides an estimate and should not be considered as a definitive measure of body fat percentage, as more accurate methods such as dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) or underwater weighing are used in scientific research settings
