Does 15% BF = six pack ?
Hi guys, just a quickie, as a rule of thumb does a six pack = 15% BF (males) or is it person dependant ?
Or what highest %bf for signs of six pack, i mean no 20%bf can have visible abs right ?

Depends on the person. Mine start going away around 13-14%, but Ive seen some guys who carry a lot of excess and still have the lines. General rule of thumb is around 12% Im told.

Assuming you work them of course. If you do no ab work, you could see little to nothing even @ 9%. Ive seen this on some little sissy kids with rediculous metabolisms but shitty workouts. If you look at my profile pic, its blurry, but it was around 15% and still showed last summer.

OK, so how can i accuratly and conveniently measure my BF? maybe some kind of electronic monitor/meter ? ive got some scales,first i Input my
this gives a readout of
weight 209 pounds
and B 30.1%
TBH cant remember what F and B stand for , i think F is BMI.
Any help ?

For most guys its below 10% that you start seeing abs. 15% and I'd have a hog-belly.

depends on the size of your abs. its like that with any muscle, really. look at the skinny people that are like 11% BF. do you see their biceps? No cuz they dont have any, while someone muscular at 16-17% will have arm definition....

Hydrostatic had me @ 11% here and I was a fatty...
