Army body fat calculator
To join or stay in the military there is no maximum weight, weight is not the standard, body fat percentage is.
The US army method (AR 600-9) formulas are a fairly accurate method to determine your body fat percentage.
Body fat standards are used to determine initial qualification for enlistment and also to determine whether or not a member continues to meet required standards after joining to the US Army.
Army members are periodically weighed and measured throughout their career. If you are found to be over their body fat limits you enter into a mandatory weight loss program.
If you fail to maintain required body fat standards you are subject to administrative sanctions, including denial of promotions, administrative demotion in rank, and even administrative discharge.

Army body fat calculator for men
The U.S. Army method Body Fat percentage formula for men is:
Body fat percentage = (86,010 x (log (waist - neck)) - (70,041 x log(height)) + 36.76
For example, to calculate the body fat percentage for a man that has a height measurement of 72 inches, a waist measurement of 39 inches and a neck measurement of 18 inches.
Waist: 39 in.
Neck: 18 in.
Height: 72 in.
BF% = (86,010 x (log (39 - 18)) - (70,041 x log(72)) + 36.76
BF% = (113,724) - (130,089) + 36.76
BF% = 16%
The following chart shows the maximum allowable body fat percentage for men:
|21 - 27||22%|

The U.S. Army method Body Fat percentage formula for women is:
Body fat percentage = (163,205 x (log (waist + hip - neck)) - (97,684 x log(height)) - 78,387

Waist: 30 in.
Neck: 14 in.
Height: 64 in.
Hip: 40 in.
BF% = (163,205 x (log (30 + 40 - 14)) - (97,684 x log(64)) - 78,387
BF% = (285,313) - (176,434) - 78,387
BF% = 30%
