    Talking What does 10,12 and 14 % bodyfat look like? When can YOU see your abs?

    Starting a cut tomorrow and curious to know what different bodyfat %'s in the lower teens look like?

    And when do YOU guys start to see abs?

    I'd say it depends on how much muscle your packing, ATM I'm around 15% and can just see my upper abs when pumped. I'm bulking aswell... but everyone is different, I've seen some 140lb people who look around 8-12% and you cant see anything. but who cares if they see your abs or not...thats the last thing I'm thinking of.

    Well it obviously depends on genetics and overall abdominal development. But for the most part I think that people can usually see the outline when flexed at around 14% assuming they have a fairly developed mid section. I have a friend who is REALLY scrawny like he is not into bodybuilding at all and never will be. He is prolly about 8% BF and you cant see his abs because he is lacking SO much muscle yet clearly he doesn't carry much fat.
    Although some people carry fat in different areas more or less than others. Like me, I am about 8-9% BF and I obviously have good definition in most areas. But my abs look like I'm about 6-7% BF. So it is in some cases genetic.

    Like the posts above, all depends on what you have underneath. When I first started I was at around 14% and No abs, Now i'm still around 12, but I've been adding muscle mass and I can see mine pretty decent.

    Good posts and pics. I'm at 15% right now and just starting to see my upper abs when flexed. I am also trying not to lose too much more weight and am spending more time on abs than cardio. I think building them up while cutting calories will help me. At least I hope.
