No you would look unhealthy and weak with 1% bf lol. I would agree with Roid though you are probably a little bit higher than 10 (13-15 seems right from just the avi picture.) You can get that look if you want it though from any bf.

sorry to say there is no way ur near 10% your around 15% it looks like (which isnt bad). If you wanna cut down to 10% your gonna need to lose a good 10 pounds of pure bodyfat which will take time and a lotta hard work. If i were you I would just try to slowly recomp over the course of the year.

ya i'd like to be around 8%-10%. in the last 2 months i have lost 15 lbs but havent been lifting, i dont think it would take me too long to lose another 10 if i try.

the last 10lbs are always the hardest becuase your body knows what is coming.
I think you should try to gain about 5-10lbs over the next couple months of clean mass and then cut from there.

I think a solid recomp would work well for you from the sounds of what you want especially if you have been unable to lift.

got a link to what a recomp is or what i do for it?

It's not so much weight loss as it is ‘Body Recomposition.’ Body recomposition means altering your ratio of fat tissue to lean tissue. So you would be focusing on dropping fat while adding some LBM to alter the ratio. Essentially you would find you lbm and calculate you caloric intake and either add 100-200 calories or subtract 100-200 calories depending on how your body reacts to different situations and start from there.
Since you haven't been lifting I think you would see some nice changes lifting hard and incorporating some cardio to try and gain strength as opposed to be solely concerned about the scale weight.
Theres a bunch of logs/information on here about people doing recomps so you should be able to find everything you need.
