## What is the Fat-Free Mass Index?

Fat-Free Mass Index “FFMI” is an index that accounts for a person’s muscle relative to their weight and height. It is similar to the “Body Mass Index” when it comes to function. BUT, Fat-Free Mass Index focuses specifically on the muscle-fat ratio. Fat-Free Mass Index requires 3 inputs to calculate your muscle mass: Your height, your weight and your body fat percentage. To calculate your body fat percentage check our “Body Fat Calculator”.

#### Mathematical Formulas to Calculate FFMI

Total Body Fat = Weight in Kg x (body fat % / 100)
Lean Weight = Weight in Kg x (1 - (body fat % / 100)
FFMI = (Lean Weight in Kg / 2.2)/ ((Feet x 12.0 + Inches) x 0.0254)2
Adjusted FFMI = FFMI + ( 6.3 x (1.8 - (Feet x 12.0 + Inches) x 0.0254))
