    All true. Agree 100%. But it does give you SOMETHING to keep an eye on. For some folks (like me) some kind of tracking is better than nothing. Something to quantify. Do your best to remember the EXACT spot you used for consistency. Write it down if you have to.

    Me either but I agree super lean. I have heard sub 10% to what a male would be.

    That would be 3.7% according to dexa which seems too low. Maybe 15%? Total guess. And hard to tell with a back pick. I can make out a bit of your shoulders in the mirror.

    I actually like calipers for a couple reasons:

    1. Unlike dexa, hydro, bod pod, BIA, etc, calipers actually measure what you SEE, as opposed to relying on essentially a computer program to run an algorithm/formula.

    2. It’s super cheap, fast, and accessible for most people... tho I admit finding someone who know how to do it is harder

    3. It’s harder to ‘trick’ calipers unless subcutaneous water changes massively for u... unlike dexa which would also factor in fluids and other things INSIDE your body.

    But point #1 is my biggest thing... I mean if what we care about is the fat we can SEE/pinch... it would make sense to measure that IMO

    Body Fat

    Im 20 yo/ 178cm and 100kg

    I was skinny fat and stuck around 15% for nearly 8 months so decided to bulk up, ended up gaining 30kg in a year, I have gained some fat during the quarantine. I have got stronger and lift heavy. I am going to start cutting soon but just wanted to know rough BF. Scales are saying 37% BF, however, when looking online I do not see myself as 37%, however, I could be wrong.

    I also seem to have more fat on my right side pec and also right lower back, I am wondering if anyone has some advice for that.

    No idea on why your gaining fat awkwardly on one side. You can't spot reduce so hopefully it'll come off the same way it went on.

    IMO 37% isn't far off. Maybe 33-35%

    When I do a quick Google of 37% it looks pretty similar.

    Good luck on your cut but don't cut too hard!

    Definitely in the 35-40% range. You took that bulk about 20kg too far.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    You're probably around 21%, 7kg more *might* put you in the 15% range, hard to tell though until you actually do it, you may need to lose a bit more than that.

    I've been back working out after like almost 10yrs. and lots of beers for 4weeks. Figured I'd take a few pics. My starting morning weight was 191-192 and now 189-190.

    Diet has been cleaned up (couldn't have been much worse) and staying at just under maint. with the exception of sometimes going slightly over on weekends when doing heavier compounds but also doing a lot more activity. Example I did full leg workout then walked 5 miles with the family in the afternoon.

    My goal is eventually to get to 13-14% again, just seeing what you guys think I'm at now.

    Two questions: What would you estimate my body fat% and how much should I cut down to achieve my bf% goal?

    About 20% and assuming you lose no lean mass at all, you would have to drop to 160# to get between 13-14%.

    I've been skinny fat my whole life. Started working out a year ago and decided to bulk up but ended up just getting fat after like 2 months (88.5kg in the before pic). I didn't want to be in a limbo stage and I was tired of having a belly my whole life so I decided to just cut down and get skinny af so that I could set up a long clean bulk and not reach 20%+ BF again. I didn't lift through the whole diet and now I've gotten down pretty low for my height. I'm at a point where I see abs in good lighting but in regular lighting they're barely visible.

    My weight is way lower than I thought I'd ever get to but looking at pics I still feel like I could lose more to set up a long clean bulk.. Or is my base now good enough and should I not bother trying to get any lower? I just have this small fear of bulking and getting back to looking how I used to. Also curious what my BF was in the before as well?

    I would say around 14% but hard to tell if you've got a bit of loose skin or not

    Question

    So I've gotten back to working out 12 weeks ago (after an 8 year hiatus), and my first aim was to lose fat through eating slightly below maintenance and resistance training.

    Day 1
    70.3kg (155lbs)
    Waist (at navel): 36"
    Height: 173cm / 5'9"


    Week 12

    66.9kg (147lbs)
    Waist (at navel): 33.75"

    So a 3.4kg (7.5lbs) net loss, around 0.3kg (0.6lbs) per week - 0.5% per week I guess.

    My plan is to get leaner so that I can slowly bulk without putting on too much fat as I know that trying to bulk whilst being at the higher end of bodyfat% will bias weight gain towards fat.

    https://imgur.com/a/U9U8tKM (or see attached images)

    I'd like to get a bodyfat % estimate of where I started and where I am now after 12 weeks.

    Thanks a lot!

    Great job! It's hard to tell in the before but I would guess 17-19% and after around 11-12% great job! You are plenty lean to lean bulk but treat it with the same respect as cutting.

    GREAT job man.

    I'd say in the afters you're probably around 11-12%... I see an oblique vein popping through which is pretty rare unless you're almost to the 10% area.
