    Competition BF?

    What's the ideal BF to compete at? Obviously low is good, but there's got to be a limit to keep looking healthy.

    6% or less is usually ideal for bbing.

    5% with 14 more pounds to lose? I think your readings are wrong.

    I understood what you meant.

    Curious, why are you trying to get down to a lower class? If you are at 5% why not hang on. You are jsut going to catabolize a whole bunch of muscle to get down 14 more pounds.

    i can vouch for dakota..he is deff under 7,he was looked big and cut at 170lbs..i think he'll have to loose some muscle to get to 154, but even at that he'll blow everyone away at that weight

    That would depend on the person (ie; diet, genetics, training & goals). I know women that stay at 10% or so all year and they can diet down for a show in a fraction of the usual time. Then some women, not only BBs but figure and fitness as well will blow up off season. You almost won't recognize them. I would imagine that it would be near impossible to stay at 5-8% for women year round and even if you were to attempt, it would be unhealthy for you. Menstrual cycles go off balance at that bf% for extended periods of time. It would also be harder to add lean mass being that low in bf all the time.

    So would you say that approximately 2 weeks prior to the show is adequate enough time to maintain between 5 - 10% bodyfat?

    Does anyone know the answer? How long does a woman have to keep her bf at competition level (5 - 10%) prior to the actual competition?

    U guys so sure that women competitors compete at such a low BF%? The guy BBs probably go above 10% when not competing.

    Women compete that low. I'm doing figure and I'm at 10.4% (been stalled out for 2mo!!) but the girl that beat me was at about 8%. I've been told 8% is about right for figure.
