Hyrdostatic Underwater Dunk Testing: Body Composition
Do you know what percentage of your bodyweight is fat vs. muscle ? Get Dunked! $49 first time rate.
Why Dunk? Stepping on the scale every morning is not only tedious and frustrating before your first cup of coffee, but also fairly limited. A bathroom scale weighs an individual’s cumulative fat, muscle, water and tissue content and spits out an arbitrary number that we use to measure fat loss--it makes no sense!
Hydrostatic underwater weighing is the current most accurate method of determining the ratio of body fat to lean mass.
Call us today to reserve your dunk!
What does Archimedes have to do with it? Underwater weighing is based upon the Archimedes Principle, which states that the buoyant force on a submerged object is equal to the weight of the fluid that is displaced by the object.
We can use this principle to determine a person’s percentage of body fat because the densities of fat mass and fat-free mass are constants. Lean tissue, such as bone and muscle, are denser than water, and fat tissue is less dense than water. Basically, muscle sinks and fat floats. To perform underwater weighing, a person is first weighted on dry land. Next the individual will get into a large tank of water. While sitting on a special scale, he is lowered underwater and asked to expel all the air from his lungs and remain motionless while the underwater weight is measured.
