  1. Calipers say I'm around 11%


    What do you guys think?

  2. Seems about right...

  3. Yea I would say 11-12. You hold your bodyfat in the exact same place I do, my lower back and lovehandles... and for me at least, the love handles don't go away until I hit about 8% or under.

    Damn.. That is loooow. I'm on my way though. I plan to get as lean as possible before about mid-ferbruary.. Hoping to cut 2-4% by then.

    Figure you can cut about 2-3% a month... 4% would impress me in 2 weeks. That's 6.8 lbs of bodyfat... probably not impossible, but might be at the risk of losing muscle. I would say a 2% loss by mid-feb would be a great goal, and 9-10% bf is nothing to sneeze at.

    I'd surely be happy to be on the lower end of 10% by then.. **** yes!

    Good luck bro. I would say to hit cardio every day, and to mix it up as much as possible.

    45 minutes uphill SSCV walking in the morning, fasted, and HIIT sprints in the afternoon 3-4 days a week... you can mix up your HIIT.

    Another great way to get a thin waist is to overtrain your abs... I know it sounds funny, but if you hit them faster than they can rebuild, you'll lose some size around the waist. This isn't always best if your workout involves a lot of compound movements though.

  16. I was quoted at 12% and carry more visible fat than you in my abdomen area. So, sure I agree.

  17. Haha.. when I do the 3 point measurement and use the calculator over at exrx it says I'm like 5%.. yeah, right!

  18. The fewer sites you take, the higher the error. I have used to do a 3-point test and it was usually 2-3% too low (e.g. it gave me readings at 4-5% and I was closer to 7-8%).

  20. calipers say im at 1.5% and i think thats about right.

  21. 11-12 seems about right, looking good ozarka

  22. Thanks for the compliments dudes!

    Nearly certain doing fasted workouts has really kicked my fat-loss into gear.. I think that's what has made the biggest difference.. Oh yeah, and the Paleo Diet!

  26. I find I get the best results when I hit my scalp, shoulders and finger tips.

  27. Wow.. B5 and Jay..

    you guys sure know what you're talking about.. I'll just go by those, for sure.

    LOL ARE YOU -4% BF???!!!

  29. I was pondering things the other day..

    once I'm sub 10% with 5-10 more pounds of lean mass... I'm thinking I might look for some part-time work as a fitness model.

    Any thoughts?

  33. If I were you, I would get my BF% pretty low before I started... probably <8%. You should ask Russianstar about it, I know he does fitness modeling. His physique is pretty appropriate of where you should be to do that kind of modeling.

    Awesome. Thanks for the serious answer sir.

    Hoping I can get to that point in the next 8-12 weeks.

    I was actually serious, they pay $1400-2000 for a days "work". I know at least 3-4 guys who have been propositioned for that from their bb.com bodyspace pics. crazy stuff

    i'm actually managing to stick to my cutting plan this time, i've now hit week 5 or 6 and i haven't given up and decided to go back and bulk or recomp. Still a while to go to even hit 10%, but i'm feeling good about it this time.

    haha.. Awesome. Might do some research on that

    Good luck easy. You can surely get there man. It's obvious you've got a ton of dedication.

    Go that route and you'll never work anywhere else in the modeling/entertainment business... it's like signing up to be blacklisted.

    I am a photographer by profession. If you want any advice about the modeling or where to get started (and what to avoid... like porn, unless that's what you really want to do), I'll be happy to help out.

    No worries man. I don't want my face out there, not doing porn anyway!!

    I would immensely appreciate any advice you have to offer on this matter. I really don't know where to start.
