Before taking the test, you will need a body mass scale, stadiometer, body fat caliper, measuring tape, and breadth caliper.
Note: the validity of the rating depends on the reliability of the measurements used. If you want accurate results, then stature and girths should read to the nearest mm, biepicondylar diameters to the nearest 0.5 mm, and skinfolds to the nearest 0.1 mm (Harpenden caliper) or 0.5 mm on other calipers. Take 3 attempts for each measurement.
