    What would you guess my BF% is. Also, gyno?

    What would you say my current BF% is?

    Also, from a previous post it was suggested by someone that it may look like I have a slight bit of gyno. I'm not really sure what to even look for. I do feel I have a tad bit of flab that will hopefully go away now that I am cutting. What do you think? My nipples have bit very slightly puffy now and again and I tend to just eat an extra Nolva pill on the days that they appear like they are puffy, seems to work.

    Don't really want to guess bf by those pics, but close to 12%...I don't really see any signs of gyno either.

    15%, maybe a touch of gyno, but nothing terrible. how about one with your shoulders relaxed instead of pulled back?

    BF closer to 18% - you can see abs at 14-15%

    it appears to be either pseudogyno (the fatty kind) or regular gyno if the masses are hard. try nolva therapy...here are some studies....

    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/showp...7&postcount=26

    or there is a new product called rebound XT that appears to be working well for existing gyno.

    What do you mean by if the masses are hard? I am not flexing in these pics if thats what you mean. Otherwise, there is no hardness in the nipple.

    I have 12% body fat that I know for sure based on water testing (see atavar). You have more than I do, so I would say you are somewhere around 18-22%

    bro, you don't have gyno! trust me you would know if you did...you would have a sore pea size lump behind your tit like me

    they just look puffy to me just keep running 10 or 20 mg nolva/day until signs of gyno show like...itchy red nips,soreness,lumps.

    if this happens up the nolva to 100 mg/day and get some letrozole asap.

    when i got my lumps i was taking .5 l-dex and 10mg nolva/day so basically from now on i am going to run letro the entire cycle.

    i am on letro right now with 6 weeks of my cycle left and the lumps are starting to dissapear and soreness is fading.

    def not gyno it's pseudogyno which is just fat deposits on your pecs. letro and diet will help out alot with that.

    LOL

    That isn't even funny how far off you are. He is NOWHERE near 18% body fat, your abs are just further developed than his!

    @18-22%

    12-15%, I agree...

    And no gyno there, just fat, when you get leaner it'll go away...

    i just now started training abs, so maybe thats an issue on why they arent visible.

    On a side note regarding gyno.......
    When I was going through puberty I did experience sore and hard nipples for a short period of time. I also experienced similar effects when coming off of some andro towards the end of highschool (not sure if the two are related)

    Anyways, I train abs at least 3x a week and have been doing cardio 1hr each day. I will post some updated pics here in a month or two and see where we are

    fat

    14%, best that I can tell. You feel as though your nipples are puffy, do you have a slight love handle going on in your lower back as well? If so, it is just the way that your body stores it's fat deposits. Diet and cardio.

    I usually think that you are correct Lozgod, but not on this one. Go to the doctor newbrew and get a BF test done. At 18-22% he would have more fat overhang, and there would not be a separation of the lower bicep from the elbow.

    I don't bro. When I get around 18% during bulking, my abs are still somewhat visable and my arms are ripped (well, more ripped than my abs).

    Part is genetics (where your body deposits fat) and part is size (height). If he is my height (6'1") he would have to lose at least 10-15 pounds for his gut to look like mine.

    That is if he is more or less my size.

    Any Gold's gym will give you a ball park test on your BF using calipers, but you gotta do it in water to find out.

    Put it this way, he is month or two of a super clean diet and cardio away from abs.

    btw

    BTW, work on the forearms a little bro. if you get a BF test done, DO NOT use a caliper method. I had my BF taken every 4 weeks for 4 years while I wrestled in college and the caliper was always way off compared to water dunk and electro. You are getting there.

    LOL.

    and Dude-Man: we are saying the same thing, that if no abs are apparent, then generally BF is >15%

    but yeah, everybody deposits it differently and it really doesnt matter - BUT (and this is a big BUT) it is one of the best ways to objectively track fat loss progress, besides the tape measure.
