    No, but the lower ou are the lower your chance of negative side effects. Not only that, but the lower you are the more pronounced your gains will be. A lot of people here will throw out the number 15% and I wouldn't cycle unless I was under 15% also. But it is an arbitrary number

    But brother, you are at least a year or 2 away from cycling safely, regardless of your BF. This thread worries me.

    The bf that I have is only mid section do to a bad car accident I was in. I have no fat in my neck face legs or arms. Don't know if that matters I am also 31 years old just so you don't think I'm one of these young people I see on here. Austinite no need to worry I'm here cause im trying to get as much info as I can before I do anything

    I know. Diet info is what you need right now. I would focus on that first. Just an opinion, however

    I won't argue there my main goal is to just ask what I can so when the time comes I'll be ready to go.

    Sure thing. I prefer to cycle only when I'm under 16%. Estrogen is easier to manage and results are much much more visible. Less water retention, too. To name a few...

    I will never be under 16% I'm German we're bred large and no one in my family is thin even when I was 17 years old I was 6'4" 182lbs track runner 400 and 200 meter and I still carried meat in my mid section. Lol I just don't think I'm designed thin

    lol. No such thing brother. Big builds have nothing to do with fat gain or loss. That's a diet issue. But just bring it down as much as possible and if you do cycle in the future, make sure you get regular blood work.

    Genetics play a part to a degree but its mainly dietary. With the right trainin and diet anyone can hit 15% and most can get to 10 IMO. Maybe past that it starts to become a more pronounced issue but I'm not really sure about that. Unless you're going for a pro card or seriously competing the average user or gym goer shouldn't see a big difference due to it

    Yes you need a good diet and I learned that the hard way, no gear until your diet and training is perfect
