# Thread: How much will I weigh once I get down to 6%?

1. ## How much will I weigh once I get down to 6%?

Bros I weigh 180lbs now @ your estimates of 16-18%.
WHat will I weigh if I get down to say 8%? SOmeome calculate this please. Please, don't flame my math skills.

2. i calculate a bit more 144lbs?

3. Well; you'd probably weigh somewhere around 160 or so. I say that because if you're able to get down to 8% BF you're gonna put on some muscle weight too. You don't just drop the fat by working out.

4. Anywhere from 16 20 pounds you need to lose.
Plus you'll lose some muscle, water and maybe glycogen depending on the diet you use.

that 144lbs number was scaring me. 160lbs is not all that bad for 17 yrs old @ a ripped % ...

i can't wait till im 180 lbs ripped....GODDAMNIT im so impatient, but, unlike cack, i wont resort to steroids.

6. Oh I'd say you'd weigh about 8-10% less.

7. Littleman, here is what I calculate:

180@ 18% bodyfat = 180 x .18 = 32.4lbs of fat.
32.4 / 18 = 1.8 lbs per 1% of bodyfat
1.8lbs x 8 = 14.4lbs of fat at 8%
180lbs - 32.4lbs of fat = 147.6lbs at 0% bodyfat
147.6lbs + 14.4lbs fat = 162lbs at 8% bodyfat...

Actually, I found an error -

147.6lbs = 0% bodyfat so
147.6 is equal to 92% of the new weight at 8%
147.6 / 92% = 160lbs

160lbs at 8%
157lbs at 6%

8. lol. im in the same boat as you littleman...

9. craig - i appreciate the calculations. thanks bro

10. why don't you continue to bulk but with reasonable calculation so you won't add too much extra fat and water? I think you should try to gain first (just a little) then go down to around 170 lbs and see where you stand. You aren't bad off compared to all the guys I've seen at my gym. You just had the guts to show others online.

11. bro - it's what Im doing. I want to bulk up to 190lbs now that the soar to 180 has been so easy. But I already have a rather large waist for my height as you can tell. I don't like wearing normal shirts because they make me look fat. If I were semi tight shirts it shows my v back, my chest , arms etc. But I don't like wearing those shirts if I have a protruding gut. It's flat at the momment, meaning it does not stick out. But it's already borderline unwanted. But I will bulk up nevertheless.
