I am a 22 year old,5'8'' and 188 pounds male.I had my body fat percentage measured today at my local YMCA using the caliper test.To my surprise,my BFP was only 11.6% although i thought i was around 20% BF.The weird thing is that i barely have any fat around my chest and arms (4-6% only) while all the fat is cocentrated in my abdomen(24%),therefore i do have a bit of a belly and love handles that show.I thought that a person with a ~12% body fat could have a flat abdomen... how much should my BPF be in order for me to have a flat abdomen and later on a 6 pack?
