Depends if were talking body, as in the total body or subQ... Most competitors walk onto stage at aroun 2% subq b/f... Alot of fat protecting organs/spine/brain... Minimum of 3% total body fat there.

human body fat essential for survival is 3-6 percent.

the odds are good that someone who is over 30% bf today was never the pecentage he claims.

in other words...hes full of ****.

The pro's are around 3.5% total bodyfat come showtime for a very brief period. (Like that one day of the contest)

I don't think anyone capable of achieving that kind of bodyfat would let himself go to 35%bf.

By the way, got any hot friends? =D

aww thanks, although
I am not a personal trainer, although I am planning on getting certified
It was just a madeup answer to his bull****ting me, because I knew he was taking me for a ride, since I ve learnt a lot on BB, this site is great :)
I wish I busted out my phone to take the picture of the expression lol

well done, i hate when ppl claim ridiculously low body fat. Show them a pic of a IFBB pro THEN ask them if they were 3%.

and why are u dating a guy whose 35% bf :eek:

haha
well I would really appreciate it if he takes a step ahead and works on his body, I mean I admire everyone on this site for their motivation, even though we all tend to make mistakes
But the fact that he doesnt put an effort, turns me off
Anyways I went out with him just once,so not like dating, more than his body fat, what turns me off is LIES

According to the NBA draft combine results Oregon point guard Aaron Brooks - who was drafted by the rockets - has 2.7% bodyfat. When I saw that I figured it was some sort of error, but seeing him around campus makes me think it could be close to that low.

Dexter Jackson walked on stage at the 2005 Arnold Classic with a skin-fold body fat test reading 0%. Yes, I said 0%. A 0% skin fold test is one thing, but his bodyfat percentage was probably around 3% (made up of essential fats). Let me also clarify that he did not get there naturally, so it's probably also not considered "healthy".

one day we will all be 0 % BF anyway, so why work hard? But I think can wait for that day for now, 14-16 % is good for me ;)

Theres no way he was like that, especially considering the fact that a person so obsessive with body building would commit suicide if all of a sudden he starts slacking off and not eat well, because he is so not used to that kinda lifestyle
for a guy with low bf % must have a really strict lifestyle that is impossible to give up

umm, nothing,just that this guy never could have looked like the guy in the picture you attached
and that
its hard to quit bodybuilding once you start, because it becomes a way of life ;)

Ohh, ok. My fault. Thought you were getting at something else.

Yeah Dexter Jackson is insane. Not many people look like that...

I'm sure the guy you were talking to was just trying to say he was really skinny once in his life.

I know of a guy with a really low body fat percentage. When he smiles you can see every muscle in his face. Not even Dexter Jackson can do that. Oh, and this dude NEVER diets. He's actually trying to gain weight.

Does anyone know the guy who owns the RAW food restaurant in California? His name is Juliano and he claims to have 2% body fat. One look at him and you know he might be telling the truth. His diet is crazy because he eats nothing but vegan food that is not subjected to temps. higher than 120 degrees.

Maybe he isnt actually familiar with body fat percentages, and in saying 2% he is trying to point out that he was extremly skinny in his younger years? Just in the same way your probably not 14% bf. Most female 100 meter sprinters are arround the 13-15 range..

haha, definitely that could be the case
but, I never claimed to be 14-16% right now;) I said that could be my dream goal before I die which is not soon from now,(0%BF) ;)

i'd recon it probably is the case. sum1 with ne remote knowledge of physiques and body fat etc would not make such an outrageous claim

it's like wen someone says, i can bench press 400 pounds, but they dont mention its on a machine bench press, and they go half way down and get help from their spotter. lol
