Would a guy 210lbs at 6% bf look leaner than a guy who is 180lbs at 5%???????
just curious to see what some say about this. I mean, is bodyfat calculations all relative to the persons mass and weight, or would 5% on one guy look the same as 5% on a bigger guy???

not a big difference between 5 & 6...the bigger guy would smoke him, unless his posing is poor

What makes a difference is the heigth of the two guys. If the 180 pound guy is 5'4" and the 210 guy is 6'2". I say the 180 guy if he is balanced and the total pack would easily beat the bigger guy.
I just competed in the North American as a middle weight. I' 5'6 1/2" at 176#. I had 3 other guys in the class at the same weight but were 5'4" and 5'3". They looked 15 pounds heavier then I. That would explain my 4th place finish. My wheels just coudn't compete with theirs. Upper body hung. Point being the heigth is a big factor of any body builder.

You have to work a lot harder to get to 220 @ 6% than 170 @ 5%, so I'd say if the 220lber had good symmetry and could pose then he would look much better.

Well, i assumed you were talkin bout the same height...as these guys said, that could make a big difference...

Are we talking about the same person at different stages in their development. Bone structure would play a part IMHO.

There are too many variables.
