Everyone on here seems to say stuff about ‘you are probably around x% bf if you can see your 6 pack’. Are they talking flexed or unflexed. For me, for example, under good lighting, abs flexed, I have a fairly well defined 8 pack. Under poor lighting, unflexed, I just have a flat stomach, no real definition.
For those of us without access to fancy equipment and the like, it would be helpful to know which everyone is talking about when they say x%. For example, my diet, and any tweaks, are based on how my waist looks in the mirror. I am interested to know roughly what % i am at, only because it would be helpful to have in mind when i review my diet. I am not a bodybuilder, I am 190lbs, 6’1, and don’t intend to get bigger deliberately. I just train to be fit, strong and a rounded athlete. I have to eat too much go get heavier than that, and am not really interested in doing that, because i can’t make time for it/have other priorities. I am however interested in knowing whether I could be significantly leaner.
For example, would someone with 10%bf have visible abs in poor lighting? I might be being complacent, thinking I am around 10-12%, when in reality I could be significantly higher. That knowledge may spark my curiosity to see if it makes a significant difference dropping bf.
