Air displacement plethysmography (ADP) and dual‐energy X‐ray absorptiometry (DXA) are well‐regarded methods for predicting body fat percentage (BF%). Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) also predicts BF% and has distinct advantages in research settings. Aim To assess the validity of BIA against ADP and DXA to measure BF%, and to test the reliability of each method. Methods Adults (n= 166) with a wide range of body mass index (19–38 kg/m2) were tested twice during a 5‐day period. ADP was conducted in a BodPod (Life …
