thanks guys. I am at 215 now. I want to shoot to get down to 190 - 200 and see what I look like from there. My buddy was trying to get me to pin now with a Test/Winny cycle and I don't feel comfortable looking like this and doing that. Need to cut!
And when the scale said 31% I thought......jesus, I really need to cut. I just didn't think 31% was what I looked like.

hey i dont know if this helps but it may. I used to be 212 pounds about 31% bf. I had a lot bigger gut than you but maybe this will help for visual reference

you also look like you have a lot more muscle mass than I did/do. So ya i would say high teens/ low twenties for you.

those omron's use bioelectric impedance for measuring, so its a better measure of how well hydrated you are than bodyfat levels... Calipers are a better judge for sure.

Still worried cause my chest looks awkward, but I had surgery when I was younger on it so hopefully it will shape out a bit.
I was planning on dropping 15 pounds but I might shoot high and try to get down to 190 - 195.....but I think 15 is more realistic at this point.

Maurice I would say our bodies types are similiar, I may be carrying more fat than you, pretty sure i am and im at 22-24% so you should be 18-22 maybe
Hopefully we get selected for the controlled lab testers! Good luck buddy!

Haha, no way you're 31% dude. Echoing what others have already said, you're in the high teens.. 18% or 19%..
The first picture shows it best, I think. If you look at your lower stomach area, you're not carrying a whole lot of fat. At 31% you'd have a huge gut.

Well I don't beleive 18% for sure since I just got checked about 3 1/2 weeks ago, was at 17% and was alot leaner then that from what I remember when I got checked at 22% cpl years ago I would say your around 25 or a bit lower but it always depend on where you carry most of your fat. I never had a very big gut even at 22% and even higher probably but the love handles where there and the side of my pecs was always storing alot of fat so we will see your result but I would say more close to 25 then 18.
