    Thanks in advance for any help. Some general questions -- been on a slight bulk, eating a a little above maintenance for the past few months. Seen a lot of results, but think it's time to cut. Abs are screaming cut to me, but maybe I'm wrong. I can see that my chest is way behind compared to the rest, though, so should I still recomp until it catches up? I think the last pic, "frontaltflex," kinda speaks for itself that I need to build the chest then cut. But want to ask the experts first . Thanks again.

    About 5'7", 150lbs.

    I'v been cutting now for 6 weeks after my last bulk, and thinking about going to 10-11 % before starting another bulk. How far away? Now 13%?

    And both pics is flexed.

    Thanks!
    Agree on about 13%BF.

    Maybe another 10-12 lbs to go for 10%BF.

    Somewhere 17-18%BF.

    I'd say cut further. You do have enough mass to look good 12%BF imo. Hard to say which fat goes first... Just keep at it until you feel satisfied.

    I'd say 14-15%BF. Also, you might want to keep bulking if you want more mass in general... but ultimately it depends on your goals and preferences.

    @ SIL,around 15. If training is going well could just mass gain more conservatively? A few months of gains is good, 6-9 months is better. It takes time and you don't necessarily have to pile on weight to make bar progress.
    Create the opportunity

    Trying to optimize form 'til summer...

    Looking for BF% estimates, as i'm tired of self-estimating and getting (generally) false low readings from calipering and tape-measurement.

    So... all and any estimates are welcome and will be repped:-)


    Height: 6'1 (185 cm)
    Weight ≈ 200lbs (90kg)
    Bodyfat: ???

    (Sorry about the grumpy face and lack of leg pics, hunger gets to me and legs are 'up to par' and hairy as **** :-P)

    Very, very, very lean. I assume 5-6%. Definitely not higher than 7%, I think.

    I might have bulked a bit too much, but oh well, I guess I'll know better next time. I think I'm around 25%bf, but I'm not sure, I'd be grateful if someone could provide a more accurate estimation, since I'm not very good at these things. I hope the pictures are good enough, I know the quality sucks.

    Would you/Ejnar mind if I DM you for some more advice? Know you don't want to fill this thread up with that type of stuff.

    Hello Tucane,
    I think I'm 16% now @180. It seems that my weight loss is going to slow down from 2lbs/week to 1lb/week but I don't want to reduce calories anymore since it's quiet low now so, I should let it reduce at this rate until I reach my goal at 11-12%? I'd like to ask you about workout. How many reps per set you suggest? For me, I've tried to work at 5-6 reps per set and it made me stronger. I can add weight to the bar almost every 2-3 weeks for many months, I felt better than 8-12reps in my first year of bodybuilding. But I've read that it's for powerlifting or just stronger not in the hypertrophy range. How many reps and sets per bodypart are you working? I'm working at 5-6reps/set 9-12 sets/body part /week. Thanks!

    You can find my pictures in my BodySpace.

    Thanks in advance
    As you really wanted the added muscle, you basically needed to 'bulk too far', that's what we all do the first time(s).

    I'd agree on BF% -> ≈23-24, from what I can see. Cut or bulk is up to you, both will be neccessary and the order of action is your preference.

    Yup, you do look to be around 16%BF.

    I'd say use the full range of 5-15 reps, always push through no matter... and alternate weights and reps between days to keep creating and adapting to new circumstances. Muscles that want/endure more reps, such as arms, core, calves etc... should often be "milked" beyond that, IMO&E.

    PM for further info/questions or create a thread to keep ~this thread~ as clean as possible:-)

    PS. Look at my pics (this page) and give an estimate to return the favor:-)

    Hi to everyone, nice thread!
    I've been cutting seriously for about a month and a half in order to lose some fat I have always had, but I am not certain about my body fat now.
    The electronic scale shows about 18% now, while the caliper tests produce so low numbers that cannot be realistic (10-12%). I think I have fat concentration in certain areas (lower abs and lower back) and is very hard to make it go away.
    So, although I've been going to the gym for a couple years, I've not been eating properly to be honest, so my fat loss and muscle gains are little compared to the effort I've put into exercise. I'm thinking of continuing the cut for about a month and then go into bulking. I'm not sure I will have lost all the fat I want, but even then I don't think I look that good without some muscle.
    So could anyone estimate my BF from my bodyspace pics and maybe comment on cutting/bulking? Thank you very much!

    edit: Height: 177cm (about 5ft10in), weight: 70kg (154 pounds)

    My guess is around 16-17%. It's hard for me to tell. You don't appear to have too much fat. You just are lacking muscle. I would slowly bulk (I don't see anything for you to cut down too) and definitely get to work on your diet. You don't want to bust your ass in the gym and not get the benefit of that work because your diet sucks.
    You can't help the hopeless.

    Thank you Party, it's a shame I've been going regularly to the gym without paying attention to proper nutrition, so my progress has not been very much either losing fat or gaining muscle. To be honest though, during the first year I was putting more energy into cardio, which was maybe another mistake.
    Also, I'm becoming a bit tired of cutting. So even though my fat at this point is not optimal, I will eat at maintenance for a week or so and then continue to bulking, but with proper calories and macros this time. I also think that adding muscle is more important right now than losing all the excess fat. I will return to cutting at some point, that's for sure, so I will push my body further to that direction then.
    Thanks again!

    Thanks Tucane,
    I will PM to ask you next time. I think you're around 7% in my opinion but not more than this for sure!

    Pretty typical for calipers and IMO one of the reason people said forever to cut to at least 10%. What everybody else said, mid teens. If you are doing well, and training is good you might be able to cut off 3-5 more pounds if you really want to, or not.

    Sooner or later if we want to see big changes we need to get to a livable long term training and eating plan. Without some balance it's easy to drift around, spin the wheels, and stay the same. That was my experience anyway. Best of luck going forward.
    Create the opportunity

    In the end, I think that it would be better to put on some muscle before losing more fat, because I look small even now, although I have some excess fat in some areas. So maybe I will gradually increase calories from now on and return to cutting later to drop below mid teens. Unless someone says otherwise, that is.

    Going to the gym has made it to my lifestyle, however dieting is another thing. I've been serious about it for 1.5 month, counting calories, macros etc and I can see the difference. So I think it's becoming more long-term. I've not even had significant cheat meals during cutting.
