    Default Estimate my BF %?

    Hi all

    I've been cutting since June, where I used a bodyfat scanner (thing you stand on and grip) and it estimated I was 18%. I freaked because I wanted to bulk but not at that high of a %. I don't have a photo from then, but at the time I was about 185 lbs.

    I've currently cut to ~168lbs, shown in my photo.

    I don't have access to the scanner now. What would you estimate my %? I know it's hard to tell from one photo but a general idea would be great.

    Thanks!

    Most of the 20-30 year olds who have me do their bodyfat percentage in my gym using calipers are in the 22% - 25% body fat range, bulking is not about putting loads of body weight on, but by only eating slightly more calories than the body expends in BMR + activities. Take a look at the info in the link below
