    BF% estimate please


    I am about to begin a cut during a deployment. It is really easy to eat clean here and I was hoping you guys could give me an initial BF% estimate. I am 5'9" and 205 lbs. Thanks in advance for the help.

    I'm on the right. My brother is on the left. In that picture, I was about 13.7-14% BF 3 months ago. My brother was 2-3% lower than me hovering somewhere around 11% then just to give another rule of thumb...

    If I were to guess..I'd say you are 16% in that picture. Granted, I have no idea what kind of water weight you carry either. I do know however that in my picture I was carrying LOTS of water weight that whole weekend so to be honest my 13.7% BF measurement often looked a bit leaner than that even..

    yeah but you^ dont have as much LBM as him, so many factors to calculate- pics are not the best way at all, but if i had to guess- 17%

    Oh yeah, he's def around the 20 mark. I'm 5'10" 200lbs and I'm a lot leaner than that at 13% (skin fold) right now. He's nowhere near 14%.

    I am 10.5% (dunk tank) in my avi. And he is the same height and weight as me. I think I look leaner, but not almost twice as lean. If anything, he looks lighter than 205. But what the f do I know. It's hard to tell from just one pic.

    Yea but hes shorter and weighs more which = looks fatter. I say hes around 17.. if he lost about 16 pounds of pure bf (7%bf) I think his abs would start to show.

    At any rate.. putting an objective number on it isnt important, its what you look like in the mirror IMO

    Well you guys are all assuming things, If you can't see his legs than you can't tell anything absolutely nothing. Whether or not he's an android (apple shaped) or gynecoid (pear shaped) makes a difference.

    Moral of the story is you've got some pudge you could lose, bf% numbers are kind of pointless, you're either happy or not. Target a "look" and add/subtract calories to get there. Diet is 70% of the challenge IMO. Best of luck, and thanks for serving.

    I'm saying around 16%BF. Looks similar to my chest/stomach at the moment which is coming in roughly 15-16%.

    As was said... What diff does some number make? You have this think hanging in several rooms in your home...bathroom, bedroom, maybe closet door, etc ... Go by that.

    If its really important then just go by whatever YOU THINK you are and add 5%. Most are way off I regards to themselves.

    Peace.
    When you leave this world, will it be a better place because you were here?
