    Been on a slow bulk on/off over the last 12 months. I went from 170lb to 183lb @ 6ft 1.5in. How do you think my bf% has changed? And would you bulk or cut now? Thanks

    I see no need to cut just take weight gain slower at a rate of around 1-2lbs a month. A good portion of the weight gain you have added will probably be water weight and lack of muscle stimulus from not training for 3 weeks (the tone look, but not muscle loss).
    Appreciated, thank you for taking the time and the positive words.

    So I have been working out for a few months consistently now, I started around 210 lbs I'm currently sitting at 194. I have been eating healthy in a small caloric deficit and have no idea what my bf% is so I would greatly value your opinions.

    Weight: 194 Lbs

    Not the greatest pics, also I have a bit of loose skin (used to weigh 304 at my worst) curious what % you guys would estimate I'm at.

    Yes, I work out in a disgusting, unfinished basement filled with my son's toys. Sometimes I even listen to baby shark while lifting.
    Well if baby shark is the stimulus to build wheels like you have I better update my ipod.

    About 13-14%

    Around 16%

    Personally its winter so carry on bulking and you still have more mass to add before cutting.

    Weight 87kg /192 morning weight

    Tried some sketchy machine at the gym that said I was 17% BF, feel like it might be plausible?

    Lost about 30kg since I was my heaviest, please estimate my current and before BF%.

    Also, If you had to guess, what bodyweight do you think I need to reach to get below 10% BF?

    Can't link photos but I uploaded on my profile.

    Thank you in advance

    Edit: Seems like I manged to attach one photo atleast.

    Hi there, I’d like to ask you if you could tell me my bf%?
    I’m 21yo, 5’9, 150lbs
    Photos are in my dashboard in progress photos.

    (The progression might not be that big but I don’t go to the gym or anything, I just casually workout at home with body weight and dumbbells.
    In the summer 2017 I was around 195lbs and decided I should do something about it. At the end of 2018 I got to around 150lbs and for the past year I’ve been keeping it there.)

    Also any suggestions how to lose lower belly fat?
    Thanks

    13%. Lose lower belly fat only keep losing weight the only way I am afraid. At some point though you will need to follow a decent weight training program or you will just look skinny this would be the best option as it will draw the eye away from the small amount of belly fat you have. Some of previous bf% requests are all the same and the weight loss is the same so no real change. If you aren't following a decent weight training program and progressively getting stronger you won't be improving.

    I would have you near there around 19%

    I personally wouldn't go down as low as 10% without a bulking phase at some point but you are probably look at mid to low 70kg

    Estimate please

    Calipers say 9%,

    75kg 6ft. Pics in body space (current progress pic)

    I'm hoping to bulk soon but want to get to a low BF % before I do soon have a buffer so can bulk for longer

    Any feedback on muscle loss is welcome I.e, expected or too much etc

    Not a great pic but I have you higher at around 11%.

    As for muscle loss it happens when you get leaner which is why I generally advise not going too lean without either the adequate muscle mass to compensate for the loss or the mindset to accept you will look small in a shirt.

    Personally I think you should bulk now.

    Been on a cut since August following a dirty bulk. I've gone from 194-176.5, and I'd like a current estimate on my BF %. Goal is to get to about 12% and start a slow, lean bulk from there. How many lbs do you think I need to lose before I hit ~12%?

    EDIT: Final pic is when I was at 194lbs, at the peak of my bulk.

    Mid 30s, 5'10" (178 cm), 82.6 kg (183 lbs).

    For 30 days I've been on a very heavy cut (over an hour of cardio a day, tight diet and I work off extra calories from my cheat days.)

    I take 5 mg of creatine and drink lots of water.

    Pumped and a bit dehydrated, flexing:

    18-19%. I would say around 160lbs would get you near there.

    Now 14-15% and before 16-17% (although the before pic is not very good due to the flash and lighting) would be my estimate.

    I cut for the last two months. Got pretty relaxed on my calories this week due to visiting family and the holidays, etc. Was wondering what my bf% is. I'm deciding whether I should cut a few more pounds or start bulking. Thanks!

    Hi!

    I would like to find my body fat %.

    Pics are in this link - https://forum.bodybuilding.com/showt...post1592719221 (latest post by me). (Old pictures can be seen in this post - https://forum.bodybuilding.com/showt...post1590946161 if necessary for comparison)
    Height: 190cm
    Weight: 86.9kg

    Since mid-November I'm in maintenance / bulking phase, where I try to eat at around maintenance or a small surplus. Daily I consume around 180-200g of protein. Additional to that, I do gym 5x week and krav maga (has some decent cardio) 3x week. Obviously, I can't tell yet if there is any difference, but the thing that is bothering me is that I keep losing weight. Also - did I do the right thing that I started to eat at maintenance / bulk a little bit (my plan is to do that till beginning of February and then move back to cutting).

    Thanks!

    Around 14% I would say possible lower depending how much water weight you have gained during the holidays. You could a little leaner if you wanted but I would stop around 160lbs and then bulk.

    Around 15%. The weight loss maybe water weight being released it happens during phases of caloric maintenance/ surplus here is a detail report on it:-

    https://bodyrecomposition.com/fat-lo...ishy-fat.html/

    I think its a good idea as spending sometime out of a caloric deficit can help balance out hormones and possible make the next cut a touch easier. See how you look in Feb during your bulk aim to gain around 1-1.5lb a month if you still look lean and happy carry on in my mind.

    Question M/5'10/217->174.8lb

    I'd be interested to know where roughly my BF% is sitting since my last post which was recommended to be 23-24%. Since then I believe my weight has come down by 15lbs or so. I must say I feel much fatter in the photos than I do in real life.

    I have you around 22%. My previous estimate may have been too low. Although you have made some solid visible changes namely in the chest width and stomach.

    Choice is yours on this one. If it is winter where you are I would bulk until the month before spring and then cut for summer.

    Around 17%.

    I personally wouldn't go down as low as 10% without a bulking phase at some point but you are probably look at mid to low 70kg

    How so if I may ask? Genuinely curious/wondering since I've been going pretty slow with the diet and kept most of my strength in the compound lifts.

    Basically IMO you will look very skinny if you aim to go down to 10% at your current level of lean body mass so you would benefit from a phase of optimal mass gain. Although it is possible to gain muscle on a caloric deficit the leaner you get the harder it becomes. Therefore undertaking a period of surplus will allow for better muscle growth.

    Keeping strength is not a sign of significant muscle growth but increasing strength and volume is a sign (through progressive overload). In order to achieve this it is more effective under conditions of caloric surplus.

    Cool, never thought I could look skinny in my life ^^

    Never meant to say that I made gainz, just that I've been trying to minimize the muscle loss during a cut. I prob haven't made any (New)gainz since Pre-surgery.
    Been eating around 2300 kcals last 3months and slowly lost weight. What would you say I should go up to and for how long? Goal is to not look fat next midsummer.

    To stay somewhat relevant to the tread, here's a couple picutre almost a year apart. Would you say the before picture is 30 something percent?
