I'd guess about 14%-17%. I'm 5'10 and 183 currently...so about the same build.

Only way to know for sure is calipers....I have a bodyfat scale, but it lies. Too dependent on my Hydration level which drops a lot on my sometimes due to playing basketball.

I'm going to go a little higher. Just bc yall are the same heigh/weight doesnt mean anything. 42ironman looks like you got a lot more muscle base than the OP. I'm gonna say 18ish

Get it tested, I think the guys are making it a little high, but if you put more pics we can be more sure.

Personally I think around 14-15% is what those pictures show, it is possible it's even less, but it depends on the frame and density of bone/muscle too, if you're not flexed it's also harder to compare to others who will take pics flexed more!

When I was more ripped I looked like I had less fat than I actually had, but at the same time when I bulk up I look like I have more fat than I actually have lol!

"Just bc yall are the same heigh/weight doesnt mean anything"

You can't determine body fat % of height or weight that is true. But if you find someone of roughly the same height and weight and you can compare your definition to theirs (if they know there %). That is a good point for estimating (which is what you wanted).

I agree with TroJon....get tested with calipers. Most gyms will do this for free and take only 5mins of your time.

But if you're like me and impatient...compare your picks to mine and decided what you think you are based off that. It'll be closer then guys of differnent body types and sizes throwing out a large range of %'s. I was tested last week at 14% at my gym.
