    What Bodyfat Looks the best on a physique?

    I like the look of around 12 - 14% the best on men and maybe 14 -18% on women.

    It shows great definition but a nice healthy look to.

    Don't get me wrong, seeing a stage ripped 6% is awsome in a way I think "wow, that fuker knows their beans getting there" but it's not the best look health wise IMO.

    I also readily accept fat off season look in required in the game for certain purposes and I'm probably around 20% myself in the avvy after a recent big push on my part for mass but again, it's not a fantastic healthy look

    Depends how you measure it.
    Contest shape denotes massive water dehydration, a hydrated ripped body does not look like that.
    IMO i like the fat free look for males and a thin layer of fat but visable muscle for females.

    Nope but they will be well hydrated and filled out.

    Actual contest shape looks like **** until you are on stage.
    Shrunken in sick looking face and the body looks drawn in clothes.
