I, BODYBUILDER sounds really intriguing, and I am always up to try new things. So upon its release I definitely want to get cranking. Right now I have spent the last couple months way off on my nutrition, and while not off on my training, I have just sort of been throwing around weight, not focused on a goal or progression as I should be.
That’s besides the point, the point is I find myself at a man boob sporting 18-20% body fat. I have found the best success with my clients and myself training to gain size at at least 12ish percent body fat. In fact the lower the better. All stemmed from reading I had done somewhere on Insulin Sensitivity and how our body will handle excess kcal, and for us former fat boys excess sugars. I think a footnote on starting BF% should accompany all “mass” programs or whatever you want to call them, becuase while I would love to gain 20lb of new muscle, I know that if I start a program yeilding that result now as apposed to in a couple of months at a lower BF I will see far better gains (or at least that what I have seen thus far).
So My question then is this…What body fat percentage would you think a person on the endomorphic side of the scale should ideally begin a program like this at, and what else can you offer up for insight on this topic? THANKS!
