I guess the other one got erased. Not entirely sure why....
Anyway, how can a BBer's BF% be higher than a X-Country skiers?
Did you read my last reply?
Remember that bf% is a percentage of total body composition.
Because endurance atheletes are skinnier, their bones, organs, and connective tissue are a higher percentage of their total body weight.
Thus, a bodybuilder at 6% would have a lower fat to MUSCLE ratio than a cross country skier at 5%. Make sense?
If the only thing you are holding is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
they probably don't eat sheetAnyway, how can a BBer's BF% be higher than a X-Country skiers?
If you mean off season bodybuilders I have no doubt that skiers have lower bf%.
A cross-country skier trains at the same gym I train, and he has very low bf but is also pretty skinny. If you are an endurance athlete it helps if you don't need to carry a lot of extra weight with you...
