    Arrow Body Fat % Pics (15%, 12%, 10%, 7-9%)


    The following is taken from another board...it gives a generalized visual of 4 different levels of male bodyfat percentages:

    Hard - 15%

    Some muscle separation appears between delts and upper arm. Abs are still not visible. Approximately 15% bodyfat.

    Here's a picture of Railz in the Hard state:

    Cut - 12%

    More muscle separation appears particularly in the chest and back, outline of the abs begins to appear slightly. Approximate bodyfat level = 12%

    Here's are 2 examples of Abdominator in the Cut state:

    Defined - 10%

    Muscle separations get deeper in the arms, chest, legs and back, and abs appear when flexed. Approx. bodyfat level = 10%

    Here's an example of Abdominator in the Defined state:

    Ripped - 7-9%

    Abs are clearly visible all the time, vascularity in arms is prominent, chest and back separation is obvious, and face is starting to appear more angular. Condition can be held indefinitely. Approximate bodyfat level = 7-9%

    Here are some examples of the Ripped state:

    Railz & Abdominator:

    Remember that this is not written in stone. For example, I am sub-9%, but still do not have abs that rival some of these pics.

    Did these guys use calipers or float tank testing to determine their bf%?

    As Rodja pointed out everyone is different...we all hold fat a little differently.

    Here is an example of 15% bodyfat where more fat is held in the lower abs. I think this guy was measured using hydrostatic testing...after he'd lost 20 pounds to get down to this level.

    This is an interesting set of photos of a crossfit trainer named Maximus Lewin. I don't know what method he used, but he is experienced in measuring bodyfat for his clients...

    He achieved the following over the course of almost one year:

    Here is a client (Karl Slater) of trainer John Hansen. His bodyfat was measured using
    the Hydrostatic Weighing Body Composition Test so it should be fairly accurate.

    You can't determine bf% by abs alone. Everyone carries fat differently so what it comes down to is don't worry so much about the number. Focus more on how you look in the mirror and use numbers like your weight and bf% as tools for figuring out whether your cutting properly.

    Hi,
    No need to worry 25 is not a big figure....
    you can control it easily but need some good ambitions towards success...

    last week i got to witness how its true..everyone is diffrent.
    my buddy got tested using a super accurate method --- the bodpod.
    and he is 9.5% bf and you cant see his abss.
    its crazy... he does have a weird body compisition.. hes holding all his fat in his abdominal area/hips.
    everything else is super lean.

    so yeah everyone is definitely different...
    i will try to get some pics of him.

    It truly sucks.

    I am that way as well... My arms have veins popping all over, my legs have no fat, I have a hard time pinching something for the caliper test, yet, my chest and abs? Wow...

    Just to give an idea: Pinching arms, legs and whatnot for the caliper test, I get roughly around the 10 - 15 mark. Pinching my abs? 25 - 30...

    Probably all left over from being chubby as a teenager and it hunts me till this day. One day I'll just liposuck the **** out of it and call it good.

    Exactly the same body style as me. Even when I bulk I have veiny arms, veiny quads/calves, a lean back and store ALL my fat right in my gut. The time I get abs the rest of my body is shredded before I am even half way there. I have lost 20 pounds in the last 38 days on a keto, back has noticable leaned out and still no abs. BOOOO

    Awesome thread. Obviously you don't need me to agree with what you said (the numbers were backed with tests), but this is basically the breakdown of bf% and body composition aesthetics. Reps

    keep in mind the bodpod is only accurate if he went in fasted, and had taken a crap already that morning. If he ate or even drank water, it could be off significantly.

    Jesus, I can't even start to imagine / dream about a 7%... Seriously, I would **** a brick if I ever made it to 11%.

    Perhaps with better genetics in a different life I'll get there

    God, going below 5 is just unhealthy. 3% and bumping into a table on your side could cause massive hemorrhaging in your organs.

    6. Shredded = Striations appear in large muscle groups when they are flexed. You look small in clothes, but look fantastic when you're not. Vascularity appears in lower abdomen and in the legs. Condition can be held for several days with careful dieting. Competitive bodybuilders often aim for this state for competition day. Approximate bodyfat level = 5-7%

    Here are some example of the Shredded state:

    ShaneG85: http://images-cdn.anabolicminds.com/image404.jpg



    Freaker: http://images-cdn.anabolicminds.com/image404.jpg



    Abdominator: http://images-cdn.anabolicminds.com/image404.jpg



    7. Sliced = Muscles and tendons begin to appear in the face when chewing, striations appear everywhere and vascularity appears everywhere. Bodyfat levels are close to 3% and subcutaneous water levels are near 0. Condition can only be held for a few hours at a time. Not a healthy condition to stay in due to lower water level.

    Here's an example of someone in the Sliced state:
