View Full Version : Body fat % for figure/fitness?
01-28-2004, 07:29 AM
Can you guys tell me what a good bodyfat % would be? I'm just looking for a range that will look good on stage, tried the search function & it's telling me it's too big a file...ugh. I'm thinking I will look my best at about 11-12%, but if I'm way off please let me know.

pro's go as low as 3%, so i guess 6%-8% should be ideal.

No they don't - this is women's fitness/figure. Even women bodybuilders don't go lower than 6-8%.
I would aim for 10-12%, so your estimate spunds good to me!

Monica SAYS she comes in around 7%. That's like Lenda Murray though. Not so sure. At the Arnold she looked about 9-10% and the Olympia she looks about 8.

I compete in FAP I do bikini which is figure and come in around 11 maybe 10 they don't want you to lean, so it thoroughly depends on the federation and level you are at! Good luck~ WWW.tishafit.com
