    on a journey for paper thin skin! :)


    current - 184lbs, 6'1 (body fat tester) 7.4%
    bulked up for about 2 months and put on way to much fat. time to shred it off. been doing cardio 5 days a week 30min. low intensity to try and not use the muscle tissue for fuel. i was wondering whatish bodyfat does one see their skin get noticebly thinner, and alot of forearm def as well. i ask this because i am trying to cut right now and at 7.4 bf i was expecting to see more def than what i am seeing as of now

    if its one of the handheld electronic ones with the silver contact pads, the number is meaningless. calipers done by a pro are far closer. the electronic one is heavily affected by hydration and other issues

    I'm about 14% bf and my arms have plenty of definition and i can follow veins from my hands to my shoulders and sometimes upper chest. i firmly agree with james in that everyone is different

    If you were at 7.4% bodyfat your skin would be thin my friend, that is very ripped and most people carry way more fat then that, I would get calipers and test your body fat that way, and like mikkel said HIIT
