    I was curious if the machines at the gym were correct about my body fat%.

    Thanks!

    Height 5’10/5’11
    Weight 215-217Lbs
    Oh I’m also 27. Not sure why it says 49

    Thanks for the advice. Yeah I've noticed a slight diminishing effect with muscles.

    I was thinking of going on a lean bulk for more muscle and strength, whilst still keeping body fat low, i.e. upping to 2500 - 2800 calories a day and more carbs (150-200g a day).
    I exercise 6 days a week, compound lifts and calisthenics at the gym, as well as running and boxfit.

    Would you recommend I try this, before going on another cut again?

    Yeah I would. I would advise running your caloric maintenance for a couple of weeks to allow any water weight to released and your body homeostasis to return to normal. Likewise it will allow for you to work out your new TDEE maintenance and then add 300 calories to that to limit body fat. Either add back calories for a few weeks or pick a good estimate and deduct 10% for good measure and run with it.

    Here is a good link explain a in depth way to transition. You don't have to do it this way but it does help getting correct numbers and hormonal balance:-

    Question What weight should I be to get to around 10 percent body fat?

    Hi all, I lost a lot of weight and gained a lot of muscle. The picture here if from about a month ago when I was around 170ish pounds.
    At the moment I am around 165 but look similar.
    I am 5"5'.
    What is my bodyfat now? And at what weight should I aim for a 10 percent body fat? Around 130-140?
    Losing 30 more pounds seems like a lot. But I want to get to that goal. I started from 243.

    Thanks.

    Probably best to cut now. If you aim for a deficit of around 500 calories you should be able to build small amount of muscle and cut fat.

    Around 17%. As stated in your other post I personally believe if it is winter where you are carry on bulking for a little while longer and cut in the spring.

    Around 22% bracket.

    Probably that range TBH depends how much muscle you have. Cut to 150 and then review before going any further would be my advice.

    I have you around 16-17% actually. You are certainly not significantly higher then 17% if at all.

    Interesting. Thanks for the input. In your estimation should I continue on cutting or work on adding muscle/bulking? I always get conflicting opinions on this.

    Aim to add some more muscle.

    You are at the point where cutting much more will cause diminishing results. I should know as I am near enough the same height as you (6ft 2) but slightly lighter in my Avi pic. Being 6ft 3 you need to have more mass.

    Follow a progressive training program and aim to get stronger whilst increasing volume as described.

    Your pic is very difficult to estimate due to the size of it but my estimate would have you near the 20-22% area but again I really need better pics both frontal and back. Upload these to your progress in order for a better estimate. Solid amount of lean mass.

    I would say near enough 12-13%.

    Hi, I’m 5ft 8inches and 167lbs average weight. Pics in body space front and side.

    I tried to start a bulk after last bodyfat inquiry but felt too bloated so started a cut November 1st or so. I still think I am 20% bodyfat. Don’t see any visual changes unfortunately.

    I am getting stronger in my lifts but I feel I still look the same and muscle still looks the same.

    What bodyfat do you think I am do you see any muscle improvement in the last 2 or 3 months?

    Thanks much bro!! Great help having all this help and feedback!

    After about 6 months of dedication, I feel honored to be able to finally post in this thread.

    34 years old, 6'2" lost about 50lbs over 6 months, went from obese to normal BMI mainly by intermittent fasting, hardly any lifting or any type of exercise.

    What is my estimated body fat %? My goal is to get to 12-14% body fat before I start lifting

    Hard to tell from the small avi pic but around 13-14% seems about right.

    Thank you man! I know I’m not supposed to be asking for advice here, but you say I’m lean enough to bulk? I was told 10% is ideal for starting a bulk so that you have a lot of time and leeway before you hit 15% where people who want aesthetics over size should stop bulking. But I’m having trouble getting past this, so I just wonder if you think it’s time I just started lean bulking or keep cutting?b

    Body fat percentage estimate please!!!

    I'm 19 years old. 6'2 ft and 231 lbs.

    I've been lifting for the last 2 years but never paid attention to nutrition. So I have decent sized muscles but the definition sucks when I'm not flexing.

    I'm unable to attach pictures coz I dont have 50 posts, so pls check out the picture in my gallery. And pls give me an estimate of what body fat percentage I'm currently at? And how long it will take to get to around 15%?

    I tried to start a bulk after last bodyfat inquiry but felt too bloated so started a cut November 1st or so. I still think I am 20% bodyfat. Don’t see any visual changes unfortunately.

    I am getting stronger in my lifts but I feel I still look the same and muscle still looks the same.

    What bodyfat do you think I am do you see any muscle improvement in the last 2 or 3 months?

    Thanks much bro!! Great help having all this help and feedback!
    In the last few months yes there is improvement. Since your last request no.

    You are at the stage where you need to pick one path and follow it now. You can't switch between bulk and cut month by month or you will end up spinning your wheels. I know you are conscious that people say you look too small already but unfortunately you will have to accept this if you wish to be leaner.


    BF% - Around 20-21%

    What is my estimated body fat %? My goal is to get to 12-14% body fat before I start lifting

    Around 18%.

    You would need to be in the area of 80-84kg would get you near 12-14%. I would advise weight training.

    Yes you are ready to bulk. I personally don't aim to go as low as 10% when I bulk I usually work in the range of around 12-18%. The 10% is for individuals who have enough mass to look good even at 15% just not defined, for the rest of us we need to stretch our optimal muscle growth a bit longer and not be as strict on the cut.

    If you aim to gain 1-2lbs only a month this will mainly be muscle providing you are following a decent weight training program.

    Around 25%.

    To be in the 15% bracket you are looking at being below 200lbs (around 190-200lbs) how long that will take depends on your caloric deficit.

    You the best man! Really appreciate it. Lean bulk it is. I’ve just been spinning my wheels for years now and thought getting really lean and doing a really slow bulk will help me get out of this rut. Now I’m off to go on the lean bulk you described. Really good point btw on the people who have enough lean mass to look at 10% I certainly don’t lol.
