I realize that no one can give me an accurate answer. Estimates are welcome. I'll be checking with calipers soon. thanks.

All 3 pics were taken at the same time, but in 2 different rooms (for different lighting).

21 yrs, 5'-8", 165, 32" waist around navel. (currently bulking, taking creatine):

High

I am at the point where I could care less about calipers..if there's veins on my lower abs, then it's low enough..

I would guess between 13-15 but that is just my guess.

Do you plan on posting anything productive?

plus if he drops the creatine, he's gonna drop water..

12%

by the way if he was 18% he would have a bit of a tire below his belly button.

:werd: I just got mine checked and I am at 20-21%. That guy is a lot leaner than I am right now.

He's around thirteen percent. That's about where I was and I was 13.4 percent.

I'm pretty surprised by some of the responses, mainly the 15%+ estimates. Here's a side view that might give a better perspective (or maybe I'm just fatter than I realized :D). More comments welcome!

I know it's really blurry but I just wanted to give a side view. Btw, 32" waist around navel.

13-14, i'd say, still alot more room to bulk I'd also say :)

President Bush was 15% on his last physical..

I'll change my guesstimate to 12% tops..

That was my next question. When should I stop bulking? I don't want to gain too much fat, especially with summer on the way. At what bodyfat should I begin to cut? Or at what weight?

thanks for all the comments everyone.

The first few pics you appear 13-14%, the last pic looks closer to 12%.

15% give or take


Possibly a bit higher but I'll go with the above for now.

Keep bulking until your not enjoying your gains as much as your disliking your look or something like that. That almost made sense.

I'd say near 12% but I'm far from an expert. Looking good bro. Do what makes you feel good bulk if you wanna and cut if you wanna. Its all about you dude.

its possible to stay the same BF and gain mass. Just going to be hard on you.

I said it was high, because it's high. It's my take that he shouldn't be concerned with bodyfat at this point

what?
you shouldnt have said high. There was no need. basically u shouldnt have said anything at all.
He can be concerned with whatever he wants to be concerned with.

I just got tested at 15%... you look a hell of a lot leaner than I do. I would say 11-12
