What Bodyfat Looks the best on a physique?

17 posts in this topic

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.

that is a fair point I never considered actually.

I've seen a fair few lads a day plus after a show and they look great and I guess the bf hasn't risen much in that time:thumbup1:

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.
