    What body fat percentage do most of you have?

    Is there a certain body fat percentage you try to maintain, or do you fluctuate depending on whether you are cutting and bulking?

    If you fluctuate, do you bulk until you are at a certain percentage then cut?

    I do not even know how to find out what my body fat % is. Although, Im an ectomorph and weight 130 lbs so I doubt it is too high.

    Currently ~ 14 or 15% but nearing the end of my bulk. Goal is to get to 10% or less for summer and until my next bulk.

    As far as bulking until a certain %...I would say just bulk until you look in the mirror and feel its time for a cut. Whenever you start to feel chubby then cut.

    14-15% as well. I bulk till I've reached my goal weight, or till i am no longer satisifed w/ my muscle/fat ratio.

    Right now I'm 11-12% I used to bulk to 15-16% and diet to 9-10%. I'm changing this. I dont want to bulk past 12 or 13 in the future and cut to 7 or 8.

    I'm looking for 8-9% within the next month.

    I'm somewhere around 20% and want to cut, but am still not happy with my mass. I will cut when I hit a certain weight, and bulk again when I like what I see in the mirror and want to put on size again.

    I think most people use calipers, or guesstimation.

    I think I'm around 20%, but I'm really not sure.
