Bodyfat Estimate


#1

Can you estimate my bodyfat percentage?


#2

It’s pretty high.

Will an exact number change anything about how you diet or train?


#3

it’s too high. Eat better.


#4

Too high for what?

@MickeyGoesToHell You don’t really need to know the exact number. The mirror tells you enough to choose what you want to do right now. Don’t bother with exact percentage numbers.


#5

anything and everything


#6

Where’s the shoe?:yum:


#7

Well I was just curious coz someoe told me its in the 25-30% range


#8

This doesn’t really answer the question I asked you.

What will you change about your diet or training based on the exact number your bodyfat percentage is?


#9

Well for starters I will stop binge eating and eat around 1400-1700 cals a day with adequate protein and moderate carbs. I also will change my rep range from 1-6 to 12-15. Also I will add a running session after each lifting workout and change my split from one bodypart/day to a push/pull split.


#10

Why not just do this now? I can’t imagine binge eating has been very productive to you before.

I feel you’d do better utilizing a variety of rep ranges and a logical progression scheme rather than just sticking with one for everything.

Yeah I think you’re right. Thanks for the advice!
