Long time lurker, first time poster.
Was wondering if genetics play a role in BF%. We often hear about genetics being a key player in muscle development, but can certain people get leaner than others based on their genes?
Reason I’m asking is that I’ve always seemed to carry around a bit of extra body fat. Over the past year I’ve really done my best to blast it off (along with developing lean muscle) but I seem to have plateaued in BF loss, even though I have intensified my workouts. I’m at about 12% now and would love to get down to around 8%. Is that type of goal accomplishable for anyone regardless of age/genetics? Any thoughts?
