    Body Fat % Pics??

    So what body fat % do most of you guys run at when bulking? And what does 10% 15% 20% look like? I have never been concerned about my body fat until I turned 30-something and started to eat a lot more. Right not I'm on a bulk and my body fat is increasing and it's starting to bother me. I have been monitoring my diet but it seems low at 3000 to 3500 cals a day. I want to cut back, but don't want to lose gains. So, what's a good % for a bulk run. I suppose there are a lot of factors involved...

    I would never go over 15% to hard to come back once you have gone to high

    I bet anyone in here who says anything about bf, has no real clue what 15% looks like. I would guess I am 15-16% in my avatar.

    This pic is of me 233lbs at 16% bf. Cutting right now and its tough. Stay as low as possible bro especially if you plan on competing. Its just a good habit to get into. Some guys over eat when they dont have to.

    I was in the same boat, wasn't sure how far to go or how much fat was ok. In the end, I decided that as long as I can still see a 4-pack in the right light, I'm good. Right now I'm just maintaining, and starting in April I'll be dieting back down and hopefully be in single digit fat percentage for July.

    Almost all of the time people are way off when they say what their bodyfat is, and very few of them even bother to test it...they just bro science it with a random guess.

    15% is very fit, especially for guys over 35.

    10% is ripped.

    8% is sliced, less then 1% of the members here will ever get this low.


    5% is world class shredded


    3% or less is a lie, it is also dead.

    On celebrity apprentice Lou Ferrigno (who looks way better than Arnold nowadays, even tho I'm an Arnold fan) said he was 320 lbs. 2% bodyfat in the 70's.

    I was surprised that either:
    A. it is possible to have 2% bodyfat
    B. he doesn't know what hes talking about

    I believe in my avi I am 15-16%, but I have a digital bodyfat scale that probably isn't accurate at all.

    Not sure, my gym does not even have the equipment to test body fat.

    I am probably around 17% my goal is to be no more then 15% in the winter, and try to get around 12% for summer.

    My bf never gets above 12-15% no matter how hard I try. But my gut gets distended the heavier I get.

    I'll take a crack at a Los response.
    " when I lean out I'm at about 4% wifey says I look really sexy and she wants to slap my pony! Off season I sit around 25-35% but I'm the second strongest man alive."
    Lol had to I'm sorry
    No cue KOS response followed by bigbenji nipping away.
