Findings and Conclusions. Based on the results of this study, we conclude that skinfold measurements (specifically the Lohman 3-site equation) were not a reliable measure of body composition compared to DEXA due to the inconsistency of the results over time. However, it was unclear whether the inconsistency of the skinfold data was a result of measurement error or a fault in the Lohman anthropometric equation. Therefore, further research needs to be done. Secondly, as evidenced by the significant difference between average weight and the predicted minimum wrestling weight throughout the study, we also conclude that the minimum wrestling weight standard of 7% body fat is an unrealistic, unsustainable recommendation and expectation for adolescent wrestlers. Therefore, the minimum wrestling weight standard should be re-evaluated, and a more realistic minimum weight standard should be established.Establish a monitored weight loss program based on a wrestlera#39;s body weight at their initial testing with a reduction of no more than 1.5% of his/her body ...
