    What my body fat is and if you guys think i should bulk or cut.
    Same near enough as this request as your weight is the same. I would have you a touch higher at around 20-21% but only a bit so could be the pic.

    As for bulking or cutting you could do either. How long have you been cutting for?

    I cut for year and half and maintained for year. So at this point not sure to bulk the cut or just go straight into a cut.

    If you have done a cut for a year and now maintained too might be worth trying a bulk for a bit of time. I guess it depends also when you are having surgery as obviously more skin would be able to be removed if you lost more.

    Have you spoken with the specialist involving that?

    5 foot 11, around 172/173 pounds. I started a cut a couple weeks ago and have lost a few pounds. Trying to get to around 10% body fat. Not sure what I'm at right now but would love some input.

    No idea don't have a iphone but I image its the same with any phone if you go through the website via your internet therefore go onto bodyspace and choose upload progress photo. It will need to be of a size 295 x 295 max and in JPG format. Just select the photo you wish to upload.

    That said based on your previous posts you are 16 therefore counting calories and macros are not required and you should be bulking as you stated you are skinny fat (a rate of 2/3lbs weight increase a month) and not fat therefore building muscle will be most beneficial your bf% is irrelevant at that age unless you are overweight.

    Smile 24 years old, 1.84m (6ft), went from 120 kg (265lbs) to 90 kg (198lbs), goal is 12%

    My weight loss was mostly due to healthy food (cut down to 1600 cals a day between January and August 2019) & road cycling (May - October, wish my upper body was as toned as my legs are). Plateaued about a month ago, started lifting 2 times a week 2 weeks ago, with about 60 miles / 100 km of high speed road cycling a week. Currently eat around 2200 kcal a day. Started cutting back to 1800 cals today.

    Goal is 12% fat, want to be all-round strong and look it (be able to climb a tree carrying another adult, be able to run 15+ km (10 miles), bench 220, squat 300, 100+ pushups in one go, etc.)

    24 years old
    1.84m / 6ft
    90 kg (198 lbs)
    76 cm / 30 inch waist

    Not flexing in my pics, just had a delicious meal.

    My scale says 18% body fat.

    Around the 155lb bracket would have you in that zone.

    About 14%. Hmm difficult to say around 180lb you may see the upper ones most likely but that depends on how much muscle you have. Looks like you may need to build more to reveal them.

    Are you saying to lose 13lbs of fat? That would bring me down from 14% to less than 8%...

    Your 13lbs will have fat, water, glycogen, muscle, other nutrients and other bodily fluids loss in the calculation (not to mention all bf% estimates and weight guesses are estimates with a varying range of error).

    I am afraid the idea of just dividing your total body weight by 100 and then multiply body fat percentage to give your body fat vs lean mass ratio is not a reliable source.

    Its not that simple for weight loss. You wont be 8% at 180lbs.

    My avi is near enough the same height as you (6ft 2) and I am 180-182lbs and around 12% to give you an estimate.

    Like I said you will most likely need to go low on your body fat for abs as you are unlikely to have enough mass simply put as generally the core should be visible around 14%. Is a tad hard to tell as your arms are up therefore stretching your core out but you have visible ribs and the hip divide associated with sub 15% but have not got inner cut on the back V which is noticeable at around 12% on most men.

    Are you saying there is no way to lose fat without losing the other items; even with a delicate recomp plan?

    BTW, thanks for the assessment and I agree with everything else you have said.

    Hello Hardyboysare. You estimated this person at 24%-25%. I was wondering if you really think I’m closer to 20%?

    My pics are very similar - only that I have upper ab showing. And my upper ab always shows even at 30%+.

    Do you still think I’m close to 20%? In my most recent pic I put on 2lbs on a 7 day vacation (had two days about 6000 calories each day lol - yes it was worth it ;] )

    Thanks for your help!!!

    BTW, thanks for the assessment and I agree with everything else you have said.
    Not really. I guess it could be possible if you took things very slowly but at a point muscle growth simply won't occur therefore over a prolonged period of deficit the likelihood that some muscle loss will occur is somewhat possible as very long periods without switching gears to a mass building phase is likely to lose some muscle.

    Its a balance once you start getting leaner (closer to 10ish% bf seems to be the level) your body will utilize lean mass a bit more for energy no matter how much you try and stop it simply because body fat is needed in the human body it cares not that you prefer to be lean, that is not evolutionary advantageous therefore excess lean mass will be surrendered.

    Its the same way that really lean (sub 10% is about right) gain fat quicker when eating excess calories as their bodies are primed to hit a certain fat storage in order to be classed as 'healthy range' of fat (this varies from person to person).

    As for the other stuff a deficit must occur even on a recomp so less substance is available therefore weight will drop due to that, plus most people drop carbs which is prone to water and glycogen weight shifts so that will drop. As for other hormonal fluids well that is basically from being in a caloric deficit no tricks are really beneficial as the moment you go into a caloric deficit they will occur.

    In short yes.

    There is always a range of error with estimates as everyone is genetically different for fat storage. However what tells me you are lower is not only the upper core definition is also the slight hip divide.

    And although contradictory to what I stated to another user above its the ratio of height vs weight. In leaner individuals and more muscular individuals this doesn't always work but for the average person a certain height vs weight helps to estimate how much body fat you can actually have.

    You are 5' 8" at 168lbs. The other users beginner pic is 5' 8" at 205lbs a nearly 37lb increase. This will not be all lean body mass some will be fat.

    Thank you sir!! Tried repping but got this message “ You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to hardyboysare again.”

    Question: I have been trying to recomp (unless I’m on vacation; then I’m happily binging lol)
    - I was able to cut and gain strength at 1900 calories a day. Then I stalled and started getting bad DOMS and got sick
    - increased calories to 2100. Started progressing and 2 weeks in, stalled and started feeling DOMS again and almost got sick.
    - bumped calories to 2300. Progressing and eating between 2300 and 2550 a day. Feeling like a champ. No DOMS hardly. Progressing. Weight staying approx the same in that range.

    I realized I’m eating Too much so cut back to 2300 but only 2 days in, I’m starting to get mid leveL DOMS and can feel that legs have not recovered.

    As a Fat / skinny fat, should I just eat on the 2300 to 2550 range? I am worried that’s too many calories and bodyfat will not drop and also muscle gains not optimal since I’m not lean enough due to partitioning. What’s the best thing to do? I already feel too skinny so don’t want to just straight cut either.

    I’m doing ICF 5x5 and lifts have gone up.
    These are starting 8rep max and ending 5rep max

    Squat: empty bar to 105lbs (slow due to leg recovery issues. Better since bumping calories)
    Bench: 85lbs to 115lbs (slow due to very old shoulder injury)
    Deadlift: 85lbs to 155lbs

    I used to be on a 3x8 program and switched to ICF 5x5. Gaining strength. Measurements are almost staying that same.

    I just want to make sure I’m not making any mistakes.

    Should I continue eating 2300 to 2550 range (hunger/DOMS based) and continue on ICF 5x5? My goal is purely aesthetic and max muscle mass gain. Strength can come along but not the primary concern.

    Thanks
