    If this is about 203lbs? Can I realistically get to 180?

    I see so many guys on this site that are similar in height to me, (I'm about 6'1), and they're absolutely shredded at 180-185 lbs. Now I know I'm nowhere near 8-9% in this pic, and it was taken almost 2 weeks ago and I'm positive I've lost weight since then (In the pic I'm about 203-205). However, I'm just not sure I can get down to the 180sih range, I feel like I'd be on my death bed.

    So my question for you bros is, at 6'1, and from my build in the photo, do you think 180ish is right for me, or should something higher be better? If so, what weight do you suggest? Thanks. Remember, I want to be around 8-9% bf.

    I doubt it. I dont think you have 20lbs to loose bro, at 190 your going to be a cut machine. Another 13lbs. and your going to have to drop some mussel to get there I think.

    Thanks for the response man, I think you're right though. I'm going to keep cutting and see what I look like at 190.

    You're at about 14% body fat, so lean body mass at 203lbs is 175lbs
    If you keep all of your muscle mass, then at 8% you'll weigh around 190lbs
    Realistically you will probably lose a bit of muscle mass + some water weight, so I'd say 185 at 8% and 189 at 10%

    Danny9m above is a shredded 185 at 6'1 so that's sort of what you might expect at 8%

    wow, what a great response man, I'm going to copy and paste this reply in my phone as a memo to myself. It's good knowledge and motivation. I'll bump this thread this weekend with new pics and my new weight. We'll be able to judge then. Thanks man.
