5'11 @ 211lbs

I dont have access to a BF measuring device, so I was hoping for some input from the masses.

Not very lean, maybe 11%. Not bad though. Why no leg shot? Are you embarrased by them?

You also have a significant hyperlordosis - at least in the second shot.

Shots 3 and 4 of your forearms are irrelevant, but I'm guessing you ut them in because they are impressive, not because they have any relevance ;)

Not really bro, I had my back arched on purpose for my back pose, so that is irrelevant. 11% is damn good if that is what you estimate brotha. I value your opinion, as I have been on this board for quite a while without posting, you know your s**t.


Leg shot as requested:

For an accurate assessment of your bodyfat levels we need a picture with you holding up a shoe. Doesn't matter which one as long as it corresponds with the actual size of your foot.

It may sound weird but just do it.

Why is this number so important to so many people? What would be the difference between me saying 15 and saying 5? Is it going to truly be reflective of your body composition? Hell no. Plenty of top bodybuilders can't tell you exactly where they are in body fat at any given time. They don't care. If your goal in all this is aesthetics, the mirror can be your best friend. Or speaking of friends, just ask your friends what they think of your body. If they tell you're way swole, then congrats, mission accomplished. If they call you a fatass, lose some weight.

Lean enough by normal standards so that all your gym buddies are impressed, but nowhere near contest lean. Still, 211 lbs at 5'11 and your level of contioning looks fairly solid.

Thanks for the kind words.

I'm not really into playing the 'guess by BF%' game, I'll refrain from commenting on your old pic. As said above, if you are happy with how you look, then the number (like weight - unless you have to make weight for sport) is largely irrelevant.

That said, your legs look decent.

I would say 11-12% but it would help if you posted a pic holding a shoe.

Most likely somewhere between 6-15 percent bodyfat.

Hold the phone playas, we have a winner:) Just kidding mang!

Thanks for the comments guys, I dont compete or have to make certain weight for any sport at all.

I just wanted a gauge of where I am at, as I would like to be in the single digits for the summer, 9.99% is as good for me as 6%, 7% or 8%....

I will post results in my thread going forward as I make progress.

For my own personal satisfaction, 210 lbs in the single digit bf range is something i would be proud of. I just finished a big bulking diet, and to clean things up by dropping under 10% would just be the icing on the cake.
