    Another question about bf% and Lean weight

    If a guys lean body weight is 155lbs that means his bf% is 0% right? Well since yo cant live with no bf fat what would the guy weigh if he was 10% bf? Would his weight be like 170lbs
    or more or less?
    Also what are most body builders percentage of bf in a competition?

    if he had 155lbs of lean mass then he would weigh like 172 lbs. Because 10% of that is 17.2 so you take 172 minus 17.2 to get the 148.8, off by .2 but u get the idea.

    I am curious about this myself... I hear of a lot of pro athletes going right down to ridiculously small percentages... 3%, 2%, etc. Arnold writes that anything below 5% might be the bodyfat of a cadaver, but not a living human athlete. I think pros get down to 5-6%. Anything lower might be a miscalculation. I may be mistaken though...

    actually the guy was really sick he barely ate, that's why he was 2% when he saw me he was 18% trying to knock him down to like 15% he just wants to be healthy and in shape.

    Damn I though you couldn't go below 4% because of the fat padding your internal organs.
