Cut or Bulk? Any help would be appreciated Jonnym126 7 4 yearsLoxtonAxiosFoods (34): I would suggest a lean gain diet. Hard to properly suggest anything without having details about your nutrition. But your BF% is average. Probably place it between 17-20% Which can help with muscular development. Focus on large compound exercises. 3-6 sets per exercise, 6-10 reps per set. No more than 60 mins in the gym at a time. I don't know lbs... But I'd be pointing at around 140g protein a day to help. Have a glance through my...

Estimate BF please(Skinny fat edition) joseph 17 4 yearsFitezNatural (1): Based on my experience in natural bodybuilding. I usually cut to 8% body fat and then lean bulk until about 16% over the course of 5-6 months. My best gains are had between 8%-13% body fat roughly. Crazy pumps at the gym, size gains what not. I've added about 3.5kg of lean mass, in around 3 months. Between 13-16% body fat I have added another 1.5kg of lean mass but at the cost of 4kg roughly of fat gain. If I remember correctly even Layne Norton...

Need advice.. Prog 6 4 yearsGetFitGoFigure (121): I agree, you do have a nice frame to work with. Building muscle and leaning out will get you that physique you want. Lift all muscle groups.... You can start with a 3 day split, hitting all muscle groups building up to 5 days per week- lifting volumes such as hitting each muscle 2x per week (heavy day, high rep day) or hit each muscle group 1x per week and really work it. In general, lifting in the 8-12 rep range gets you size. 3-5 sets per...

11 mnths progress. Can't wait for the nxt 11 wxfreekj 4 4 yearswxfreekj (157): Thanks @wannabemuscular and @SRorhrbac0808! I feel fckn ahmazing! I still want to cut more. I've never been lean and my hot wife has spent the last 16 years with a fat dude, so I'm going to ride the cut out through the summer at least. In November I went from a really calorie restrictive carb cycling to an iifym approach at a 20% deficit--which actually had me add about 500 calories a day. I've been leaning out but staying at about the same...

Please, estimate my BF. oolong 23 5 yearsoolong (4): So slow bulk, here I come! I'll leave some report in a few months for sure. No more cutting! :D This is gonna be great! Thank you all, wish me luck!
6% Bodyfat Danimal_88 10 5 yearscardinal (6175): @Xxlean Not had it tested properly in a while but I would estimate somewhere between 8-10 %, most likely 9%. It's hard to say as I can look stupidly lean/ vascular if I'm dehydrated and lower my carb intake drastically but obviously I don't want to do that on a regular basis. I would say 9% is fairly accurate now though. I personally think 11/ 12% is ideal for most though. You look lean, feel good and perform optimally.
Bulk or Cut? Need advice djg08 5 5 yearsFrostshock (13324): @djg08 I usually aim for the same amount, for my next lean bulk I'll probably soon for 1 lb/month just because I want to work on my metabolic capacity but again - everyone's got different goals. I think you look leanas hell but if you don't like for your body looks then a tiny mini cut for a couple of months at a small deficit could bring your confidence up and give you summer abs Also water retention can be a monster, I had it for sure, cut...
Body fat estimate and what should i do? pea 12 5 yearsbrian12 (9495): BF 25%. My opinion. Lift heavy and lose some fat (you are new so u can add muscle at the same time). I seriously would never suggest that you bulk from that point. Possibly eat at maintenance and train hard, but dont eat in a surplus unless u want a bigger belly ;)
please estimate bf% nbd23 20 5 yearsnbd23 (10): @trev182 your right man i just have never known you always hear people say if you can see abs you must be around 10% so i have always assumed im around 10%. and i do go by the mirror normally just wanted a general idea hence my first post being about it. and thanks for the compliment
Bf?? AMSisme92 7 5 yearsBeans (4204): Body fat % is almost a useless number. Would you feel any different if everyone said you were 5%? You won't get fat if you transition nice and slowly into a caloric surplus, but at this point it doesn't look like you have enough muscle to look really lean. Put some good effort into bulking properly, and you'll like the outcome.
What is my bodyfat %? dontevenliftbra 6 5 yearsCherokeeDoc (13): yeah i'd say around 20%.
Lean Bulking Body Fat Esitmation Kfit90 Jump to first page39Jump to last page 5 yearscardinal (6175): @Kfit90 I haven't measured my body fat properly in a long time but right now I would guess about 9%? MY macros are currently 335 carbs/ 74 fat and 188 protein. I eat at a small calorie surplus, lift weights 5 x per week, one of these sessions is a conditioning session, I do one HIIT session per week and I like to keep active so do lots of LISS. I enjoy evening walks for example. That's all there is to it.

What Bodyfat am I now? newguy298 16 5 yearschriselkins (1597): 18% -3 to +5% variance
Body Fat Estimate? djg08 8 5 yearsLVjack (2749): It's just a number, don't let BF% determine how you feel. Go by comparing progress pics from week to week taken at the same time (first thing in the morning)
How much bodyfat do I have? newguy298 12 5 yearsMethod (379): @newguy298 Let me clarify my statement so there is no confusion. My thoughts are that you should be eating at maintenance for a few months before cutting. Since you haven't been lifting, it'll be hard to build a lot of muscle while on a cut.
body-fat-estimate Sevastiannn 5 5 yearsFrostshock (13324): Ehhh, may be the lighting but I wouldn't say exactly 10. Definitely in the teens though for body fat.

Please, estimate my BF + Bulk or Cut? oolong 19 5 yearsoolong (4): Can do! So 3 days more of dieting, then a week long slow transition, and from 07.04.14 my way to the top!
Body fat estimate? dserious111 23 5 yearsFiremanSi (42408): 11-13%
New guy, need some advice djg08 10 5 yearsFrostshock (13324): Definitely not unless you're fine with gaining more fat than you have to. Refer to this example ---> So using your ACTUAL numbers, I would go back down to 2300 calories and track for a week. If I'm still gaining greater than or equal to .5lbs per week, I would stay at 2300, if NOT I would raise it up to 2400. Sometimes this can take 1 week, sometimes 3, but gaining is gaining and as you stated you don't want to gain any...

Before pictures- 181 lbs - After pictures - 162 lbs -
what bf% and weight should you aim for? jonrivs49 10 5 yearslolssons (1249): @firemansi Is this true? in that case where does the fact come from? and why would your body decide to gather fat instead of muscle after a sertant point? Iam just curious not bashing or anything.

Current condition anyone no the bf? Pearce_Bolton 13 6 yearswittyname (13): Mate not looking too bad. I'm 15 and what I've done is triedto stay at a comfortable body fat aesthetically but keeping in mind I need a certain level to achieve the strength and size gains I want. I know it's hard to keep the end goal in sight, so if you want to be a bit leaner, it's not gonna ruin your future physique if you do it reasonably well. If you were to cut, just eat the same and add in a few HIIT session and/or make more health...
Any ideas of body fat Jimmydrama13 4 6 yearsOptimusPrime (1257): No probs. Just get a DEXA Scan at the end of your diet, take an epic selfie and keep it with your results on the day so you have a benchmark. You could also get calliper tested by the same person on the day, and compare it to the scan results, if they have a minimal error margin, you can be confident in their pinching abilities. Best 'o luck.

Was actually 11.88~ but I like to round up + 1, little bit more of a motivation if I think I'm a fatty =P Thanks guys! I'll put some up next month to see if I made any progress. I've got 6 more weeks of a cut, then its bulk time up to 175!
Need body fat estimation. No hate plz alekay1008 25 6 yearseknight (58109): @alekay1008 have no idea what you're going on about. My point is that at your age, you don't need to be cutting calories unless your doctor advises you to. You need nutrition to grow and develop adequately. If you want to get leaner, the calories need to be burned via increased activity. -3X
What bodyfat am i? Kphan18 Jump to first page32Jump to last page 6 yearsMikemadeofpeace (1363): You seem intent on cutting and I guess no one but yourself can change your mind but one day you might regret not using these early days to add quality mass to your frame. Once you have paid your dues it will make cutting all the more worth while man! Physique competitors are still stacked with mass :) You are very lean and have set your self up nicely for a long healthy lean mass phase. Don't mean to sound preachy, of course you should do what...
